The move that saw Jack Grealish go from Aston Villa to Manchester City troubled a large section of the Villa fanbase. However, following a story questioning his relationship with the Villa faithful, the England international reacted angrily.
In early August, he 25-year-old Grealish teamed up with Pep Guardiola’s men that involved a British record transfer fee worth £100 million. With one goal and an assist in his first three games at the Etihad Stadium, he has made an immediate impact.
Making the right choice
An important figure for England at Euro 2020, Grealish, became a hot property across Europe after some great displays at Villa Park last season. However, with a £100 million release clause, only a few clubs could afford it. Manchester City was one of them.
As a lifelong Villa supporter, he had to choose between becoming a legend at his beloved club and winning significant trophies. Grealish selected the latter because his stock had never been greater, and he wants to make the most of it.
Many Villa fans, on the other hand, are still coming to terms with Grealish’s departure and have expressed their displeasure. The Birmingham Live published an article regarding Grealish’s desire to leave Villa following City’s interest this week, following a public interview about his future.
Grealish, on the other hand, has had a negative reaction to the narrative, taking to social media to question some of the assertions made in the article.
Grealish responded to the Birmingham Live author’s opinionated article on Twitter, saying: “This is the worst and most one-sided article I’ve ever seen.”
But, no matter how much they adore or despise their former idol, there is no disputing that he has a better chance of winning the Champions League and Premier League at City than he does at Villa.
