Manchester City forward addresses issue with Newcastle’s in-form winger and World Cup celebration for fan who has cerebral palsy
By his own admission, Jack Grealish has packed a lot of “stupid stuff” into his 27 years. The Miguel Almirón episode was surely a good example. Grealish was a little drunk and extremely euphoric (or perhaps it was the other way around) as he celebrated Manchester City’s Premier League title triumph last season and he was asked by his teammate Bernardo Silva to explain the final-day comeback win over Aston Villa.
Grealish being Grealish, he got carried away with one of his jokes and ended up performing a drive-by on Almirón, the Newcastle winger. One of the secrets, Grealish said on a video shared on social media, was to substitute Riyad Mahrez because “he played like Almirón”. “Do you know what?” Grealish says from England’s World Cup training base in Al Wakrah. “I haven’t actually been asked about that and let me just address it.”
