Jack Grealish hits back at Graeme Souness criticism: ‘I don’t know what problem he has got with me’
The i says in the light blue corner Jack Grealish, in the blood red corner Graeme Souness, sitting in the middle, lights down low, the adjudicator Gary Neville. You could make a series out of that. Stick it on pay per view. People would pay good money to watch Grealish defend himself against the biting Souness analysis that he is not a great player.
Souness loved a tackle. It would be fun to see if he would soften his two-footed approach or go in even harder. The question of Souness is begged not because he might tremble at the prospect of a face-off with Grealish but because the divisive 27-year-old juggler is such a self-effacing, inoffensive character in the flesh. The preening sense of him that you might have inferred from his social and mainstream media portrayal is somewhat removed from the lad himself.
