Jack Grealish, a star for Manchester City, poked fun at Ruben Dias after the defender uploaded a training video in which he pushed the forward out of frame. Due to remarks, he made in the past about Miguel Almiron, a star for Newcastle, the winger has recently been the target of countless jokes.
Since joining City last year, Grealish has failed to have a meaningful effect on the field, scoring just once in six league games. The No. 10 has, however, undoubtedly adapted well to life at Etihad Stadium and seems to have a significant presence in the locker room.
Grealish can frequently be seen having fun with his teammates in behind-the-scenes footage from City, and the midfielder has used Instagram to defend himself against Dias in a funny training ground spat.
The Portuguese defender posted a video on social media with the caption, “Didn’t see you there @jackgrealish,” showing him pushing Grealish as they lined up for a drill. The England international answered on his Instagram story, showing that he was not about to be perceived as, quite literally, a pushover.
Grealish stated that Riyad Mahrez “played like Almiron” and that it was a relief that he was taken off the field after City defeated Aston Villa on the last day of the season. Nevertheless, the Paraguayan player has improved after using the advice, netting five goals so far this month.
The legendary Liverpool player Jamie Carragher even made fun of Grealish’s remarks after scoring against Tottenham over the weekend. “The confidence this lad has got today, he wouldn’t have done that last season,” he said in a statement to Sky Sports. Without a question. This guy is a different player, and Jack Grealish, not Eddie Howe, is the one driving him.
he responded, “Do that again, I dare you.” On their drive to Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday night, before City’s Champions League encounter against Borussia Dortmund, the two were sure to have laughed a bit over the post.
Grealish was one of Pep Guardiola’s seven substitutions for the game, as it was chosen to rest the attacker in preparation for upcoming league matches of more significance. Although the 27-year-old will be eager to start playing as soon as possible because it would provide the attacker a chance to refute those who have made fun of Magpies star Almiron for outperforming him.
