Jack Grealish has been advised that he will scare off Manchester United and Chelsea with the “issues” he’s made off the field.
Former Villa and Liverpool striker Stan Collymore commented on his behaviour in talks with SiriusXM: “If you look at Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, who all might be looking at you, if he keeps making these kinds of mistakes, they just won’t take him.”
Grealish made for unpleasant news by violating the lockout policy during the coronavirus outbreak – forcing him to deliver a formal apology.
Collymore said about that, “As for Jack Grealish, I did that. When he went to the party, I sent him a long mail. I informed him he had to make amends.
“I told him: ’You have nice people around you, you’ve let them down, but now it’s time to get back on track.’
“Like a prescription, he did what I suggested. He made a large contribution to a local hospital and he was forgiven.”
He added, “A major conversation- make sure the families, the doctors, the teams, hold their telephone lines accessible as the players are human as we all.”
He also talked about different generations in football: “As an older man today, looking at any of these young kids, older players will today be willing to pick up the phone and tell ‘think about it – have a word about that’.”
