Grealish Was Tearful Like Messi over His Own Football Transfer

Jack Grealish with City coach Pep Guardiola

Lionel Messi cried as he announced his departure from Barcelona, and Jack Grealish sympathized with the Argentina star. Grealish was tearful like Messi over his own football transfer, by his own admission, away from boyhood club Aston Villa.

Winger Jack Grealish moved from his boyhood club Aston Villa to their Premier League rivals, Manchester City, this summer.

The Premier League champions matched the England midfielder’s ridiculously high release clause, all to bring him to the Etihad Stadium.

This is how Grealish joined City on Thursday for a British record fee of £100 million (transfer news football).

And, in transit, he felt the same way as a tearful Lionel Messi did when announcing his departure from Barcelona.

Grealish Was Tearful Like Messi over His Own Football Transfer

Grealish, who has been at Villa since the age of six, told reporters on Monday that he understood Messi’s situation.

“Everyone has seen the way Messi was at his final press conference,” said Grealish in a press conference.

“That is the exact way I felt myself,” the now-City player revealed.

“Before I left the hotel I spoke to the team, the staff and the players and I teared up a bit myself.”

“I felt like it was time for me to move on,” Grealish added. “I’ve always said how much I wanted to play Champions League football – I couldn’t do that at Villa this year.”

Having thus stated his reason to move, he looked forward to the future and finished:

“I have come here to win silverware and play in the Champions League, so that is my only focus now.”
