Aston Villa star Troy Deeney and Blues star Mason Mount both defied quarantine rules the past month.

For Mount, he was caught playing football when he was supposed to be on self-isolation after teammate Callum Hudson-Odoi had tested positive for Coronavirus.

Jack Grealish recently broke government quarantine rules when he allegedly went to party at his friend’s house.

Watford captain Troy Deeney has slammed the criticisms that Grealish faced and believes that Mount didn’t face same even when he committed a similar offence.

Speaking to The United Stand, Deeney said: “Jack is my dude. Jack is my guy man, nice kid, unfortunately plays for that team that we don’t talk about. But Jack is my guy.

“Do you know what it showed to me, in a bigger conversation, this is what happens when you force people to do stuff for clubs. So him putting that video out, that’s not him doing that. The second video of him and you hear him going, ‘I’m sorry’, that’s him, because he’s saying he messed up there. This is it when it comes to social media now, clubs going: ‘Post this, do that, do this, do that’.

“Genuinely if you’re a young person – and when I say this it’s not right – if you’re a young person, you are literally going, based off everything you’ve been told, ‘This virus doesn’t really affect me, I’m fit and healthy I’m gonna go out’.

“It’s not the right way to think, I don’t think like that, but I can understand people that do. Until it affects home, why are you going to change?

“Not just with him but young people in general – do you think he’s the only one out? Mason Mount, the first week of it, he’s at Power League. And that went under the radar, no-one hammering him.

“He ain’t being forced to come out and do big apologies, he just went, ‘Ah should have done better sorry’.”

    Deeney hasn’t got a clue what he’s talking about. Mount never went under the radar he got in shit for it. Just because he didn’t come out with a video apologising doesn’t mean he got let off. At end of the day they are young and are going to make mistakes. Don’t need some second rate player defending one but slating the other. Especially someone that’s done worse in the past than either of them.
