Manchester City star Jack Grealish hits back at Graeme Souness
Share this post:

Jack Grealish has slammed pundit Graeme Souness for his constant criticism of the Manchester City star.

Since making his record-breaking £100million move from Aston Villa to City last year, Grealish has come under plenty of scrutiny from fans and pundits alike, with Liverpool icon Souness perhaps his most vocal critic.

Many have commented on the attacking midfielder’s lack of goal contributions at the Etihad, having scored just seven times and making just four assists in 45 games for the Citizens.

Souness has also described the 27-year-old as a ‘good, not great player’ and has claimed that he holds onto the ball for too long.

But now Grealish has hit back at Souness, saying that the only person he’ll be taking advice from on how to play is his manager Pep Guardiola.

‘I don’t know what his [Souness’] problem is with me. He always says stuff about me,’ Grealish said while on international duty with England.

‘It is difficult [to ignore] when he’s on Sky Sports and it’s everywhere around the training ground. He was a great player and won a lot, but I don’t know what problem he’s got.

‘I know he’s said a lot of stuff about me not moving the ball quicker but when I’m playing for a manager like Pep Guardiola and he’s telling me to keep the ball as much as I can and have balls to take it everywhere, that’s what I’ll try to do.

‘I always watch my games back and I’m very critical of myself. I know that there were games, especially in the second half of last season, where I wasn’t at my best at all.

‘I’ll always have people on my back. When I signed for City and the price that came with it, I knew it wasn’t going to all be laughs, unless I started the way Erling Haaland did. That’s the only way I wouldn’t get caned!’

Grealish also received criticism over the summer over stories about him partying hard in Ibiza and Las Vegas, but he has rubbished the claims that he has a Jack the Lad’ lifestyle.

‘I’m just like a normal kid. I feel like I was just doing what a lot of other footballers do but sometimes I get more attention when I’m on holiday in Ibiza or Vegas,’ he added.

‘After that, I was putting up photos of me working. I don’t know if a lot of people spoke about that.

‘I tried to come back as fit as possible and I felt I did. I know how professional I actually am.’
