Grealish responds to Souness’ criticism
According to the Daily Mail, Grealish was baffled as to why Souness was always on his case. The popular pundit who became popular for his harsh criticism of Paul Pogba said that Grealish “takes too much time on the ball.
However, Grealish was having none of that.
I don’t know what his problem is with me. He always says stuff about me.
The 27-year-old is the most expensive English player after completing the switch from Aston Villa last year for 100 million. Grealish said that it is sometimes difficult to ignore what Souness says because he is everywhere.
I try not to read a lot of it. It’s always everywhere around the training ground. He was obviously a great player and won a lot but I don’t know what it is with what he says about me or what problem he’s got.
Moreover, the England forward says he’s not bothered about those comments as he trusts his manager and his own talent.
I know my own ability. I know before he used to say a lot of stuff about me not moving the ball quicker, but when I’m playing for a manager like Pep Guardiola and he’s telling me to keep the ball as much as I can.
England plays Italy and Germany in the Nations League, and Grealish will be in line to start the game. He also expects to be on the plane to Qatar for the World Cup.
