Jack Grealish: “I need to play in the biggest games at club level...“

A great reasoning of his move to City.

Jack Grealish knows he made the right decision to sign for Manchester City this summer.

The star England man has spoken to ITV and gave reasoning for his move over to City-

“That was a massive reason. To be playing for England in the biggest games, I need to play in the biggest games at club level so that should be the Champions League - all them type of games”

“You see the likes of Phil [Foden] playing in the Champions League quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final and you can really see that helped his England career as well,”

A well reasoned and nuanced take from him. The backlash he received from the move was unwarranted, he did it ‘the right way’ and people still complained furiously.

Grealish has started pretty well at City, starting in all matches and performing well in multiple positions.

Time will tell if the price tag was be warranted, but early results suggest it could be.
