Gary Neville Delivers Firm Verdict On EPL Star

  Sports

Aston Villa’s players look up to ‘leader’ Tyrone Mings, Gary Neville has claimed as he hailed the defender’s impact.

Mings has been excellent in the Premier League since he converted his loan stint at Villa Park into a permanent stay in the summer.

Eyebrows were raised when Villa shelled out an initial £20m to land Mings from Bournemouth, but his popularity as a fan favourite among the claret and blue faithful has only risen since.

Villa lost both of their opening matches, first against Tottenham and then former club Bournemouth, but Mings has looked right at home in the top flight and excelled in the 2-0 victory over Everton on Friday alongside central partner Bjorn Engels.

Neville was part of the Sky Sports team covering the game and highlighted the 26-year-old’s influential role within Dean Smith’s squad.

The former Manchester United and England full-back said: “He is somebody at the back who is a leader, somebody who they all look up to.”

Villa boss Smith, meanwhile, tipped Mings for a call up to the England squad after Gareth Southgate watched the win from the stands.

“I don’t think we’re blessed with too many left-sided centre-backs in English football at the moment and I’m very lucky I’ve got two of them with Tyrone and Kortney Hause,” he said.
