Paul Merson: Jack Grealish doesn’t fit in at Manchester City


Paul Merson: Jack Grealish

Former Arsenal player Paul Merson believes that Jack Grealish doesn’t fit at Manchester City and the club might want to sell him in the summer. He became the most expensive player in the history of the Premier League when he was bought from Aston Villa for £100m. He could still end up winning a Premier League medal despite playing in only half of his side’s games this season.

“I had a feeling it would be like this – I didn’t get the move to Man City. He’s a top player, I’m a big fan of Jack. I didn’t see it working really though. From the age of six, he’s been taught to get the ball, dribble with it, and beat everybody. From the age of six,” Paul Merson said about Jack Grealish. “Then he comes through the ranks, gets into the Villa team and keeps doing that, and then goes to a team that is all pass, pass, pass. 20 years he’s been taught one way and now he’s got to stop doing that and pass the ball. And it’s hard. It’s hard. He’s been getting the ball, beating the world, and then do what you want Jack. Now, he gets the ball and has to pass it. He might turn round and say he’s loving every minute, but I think he’s finding it difficult at the moment.”

“He’s got to keep playing a certain way, they want to pass and they all know what they’re doing. They have a plan, and he doesn’t play that way. He gets on the ball and he wants to beat people, now he’s got to change that at 25, 26 years of age,” he added. “I don’t think he’s going to get used to doing it. I think they might sell him, I might be wrong. Maybe not this summer, but is the lad enjoying it? You’ve got to ask him.”
