Pep Guardiola believes that it is only a matter of time before Jack Grealish will start scoring the goals to match his price tag. The defending champions spent £100m to bring the Aston Villa captain this summer. He missed a number of chances to get on the scoresheet in their last match against Wolves. Manchester City is set to face Leeds who they failed to beat in both fixtures last season.
“He has to do exactly what he is doing, no more than that. The rest will come.” Man City manager Pep Guardiola said talking about Jack Grealish. “He has chances to score two or three goals every game and one day he is going to do it. He could have had a hat-trick against Watford and in the last game one or two goals again. The way he is playing is good but when you play a fantastic team like Wolves, who are incredibly well organized defensively, it is a good compliment for them that the fact to break their structure is so complicated. It was difficult for all the players, not just Jack.”
“Never in my career did I find one season when every player stays, from the beginning to the end, in top form. There are highs and lows,” he added. “But he doesn’t have to score. What he has to do is play like he knows what to do, feel that his contribution is helping to win games and the rest will come.”
