Jack Grealish is a happy man. Reflecting after a great match where he scored a great goal, the star English player spoke about his first UCL match and much more.

Let’s check it out-

“I loved it, I’ve been waiting a while, the past few days and weeks I couldn’t wait for this game,” he said. “It’s a great night! It was one of those games, it had absolutely everything.

“We’re delighted to get the win against a good team, they were full of energy. I’m delighted personally mainly with the three points, but also with the goal and assist.

“Ruben [Dias] went into a tackle, then the ball came to me. When I’m running into the opposition area I back myself against anyone one on one and luckily it paid off and I hit the back of the net. I’m delighted to get the goal.”

“Anything can happen in the Champions League, that’s why it’s such a wonderful competition.

“As soon as the game kicked off I thought in my head i’ve actually played in the competition now. The game and result topped it all off.”

“That’s what he’s like, he’s always wanting more defensively and offensively, he’s someone I’m going to listen to after everything he has achieved in the game. He’s always giving out useful information.”

What a player and he’s been so happy since arriving at the club, it’s a great thing to see.
