Pep Guardiola has praised the way that Jack Grealish has settled at Man City but admitted that he must produce his best for the rest of the season. Grealish has been out for the last couple of weeks with an injury but could be back to face his former club this week. He joined the defending champions in a record £100m deal this summer. In a recent interview, he admitted that playing at Man City was more difficult than he had expected it to be.
“I don’t think so, we will be in trouble! We have to see it right now, the best of course. We have six or seven months ahead of us.” Pep Guardiola said about Jack Grealish. “Absolutely not, I am not thinking the best of Jack Grealish we will see next season. I want to see it this season!”
“I would say he settled perfectly. I think it is easy because he knows many English players here and the other guys are sometimes too much (sic) nice people,” Guardiola added. “It is not a problem, he plays good, he has to finish to settle, to find a real apartment to live in. You always need a little bit of time. If you analyze the games [and whether] he played badly. Absolutely not. With the quality, he has it is difficult to play badly. But the way we played and the expectations every few days… It is completely different from what he lives at Aston Villa. But he did it incredibly well there.”
