Jack Grealish Has Very Mature Response To People Criticising His Partying
| Last updated
Jack Grealish has responded to people raining on his parade.
Look whether you're a die-hard City supporter, or know nothing about football, most people have a soft spot for Grealish.
The 26-year-old from Solihull might be the most expensive British footballer at the moment, but he also just wants to have a laugh, especially after winning the Premier League.
Still, that doesn't stop people from criticising his partying.
It all started when a series of videos went viral show Grealish enjoying some post Premier League bevs.
He then headed to Ibiza, as you do this time of year, and straight for Wayne Lineker's infamous Ocean Beach Club - you know the one from literally everyone's Instagram stories.
While it seems like the player is just letting his hair down post-match, some saw it as a sign he was partying a little too hard.
Now, Grealish has responded and he has a fair point.
Speaking to Daily Mirror, Grealish maturely said: "I'm doing what I have loved doing my whole life.
"I'm the most expensive British player but I'm also the Jack from Solihull who my friends and family know. I'll never let that leave me, no matter what anyone says.
"I know people were saying last week, 'Oh, he's doing too much'. But what? I've just won the Premier League. It's a dream come true. Why can't I go on holiday?
"There's people that are at England with me now who went to Vegas, Ibiza, Marbella, all these places. No-one said a word, but because it was me, people were saying things."
Grealish has long been in the spotlight, since his early days at Aston Villa to his current tenure at City.
When asked how it's been living life under a media microscope, Grealish said: "It's fine."
He added: "It what it is. If that's what people think, that's fine. I think it's a good thing to have - and you just have to embrace it.
"I try not to let anything get to my head. It's all about enjoying it, as long as I'm enjoying myself, playing football and enjoying life off the pitch even; then I will perform well. Fingers crossed I can do that over the few weeks and few games."
And, if he's not hurting anyone, why can't the pro have a few pints? Especially seeing as his spate of wins was followed by a slew of bank holidays.
