Jack Grealish admits he’s ‘in a world of pain’ as bleary-eyed Man City star emerges worse for wear after epic four-day bender, with Treble winner set to join up with England

  • Jack Grealish made the most of Manchester City’s historic Treble last season 
  • The midfielder revelled in a four-day bender after the Champions League win
  • However, Grealish is now facing the prospect of reporting for duty with England 

Manchester City midfielder Jack Grealish has admitted he is ‘in a world of pain’ after his booze-sodden four-day bender following his side’s Treble triumph.

Grealish played a key role in City’s Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League victories last season and duly celebrated making history by hitting the bottle.

Indeed, he partied into the early hours in Istanbul after the 1-0 win over Inter Milan before jetting back to England on Sunday morning with the rest of the squad.

Likely sleep-deprived, Grealish was spotted still wearing his full match kit before he and several other players jetted out to Ibiza for a swift celebration on the island.

After downing drinks once again in the Pacha nightclub, City’s group then returned to the UK to participate in yesterday’s rain-disrupted open-top bus parade.

But the party certainly didn’t stop there, with Grealish basking topless in the drizzle and filming the moment Erling Haaland poured a bottle of champagne on his head.

Grealish now faces the prospect of dragging himself to St George’s Park to join up with England for international duty, but appears to be nursing a crippling hangover.

In a text conversation with Jimmy Bullard, he opened up on his tender condition.

Speaking live on radio, Bullard said: ‘I text earlier saying, “Jack, I’m coming on talkSPORT. I love you. How are your three trophies going?” 

‘And he text back, “Wow, I’m in a world of pain!” What a legend. Brilliant. I love the boy, I think he’s unbelievable for English football.’

The five City players called up by Gareth Southgate for the Three Lions’ upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia are expected to report for duty this evening and link up with the rest of their compatriots.

It is understood Grealish, John Stones, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and Kalvin Phillips will be eased into training with a view to having them available for next Monday’s game.

They are set to travel with the rest of the squad to Malta later this week but are not expected to start. Depending on their fitness, they may not even make the bench.

Bullard, however, is keen for Grealish to be allowed to party to his heart’s content.  

‘I hope people don’t put Jack on a pedestal too much and then chop the legs off of him,’ he said. ‘Let Jack be Jack. Let him celebrates when he wants to celebrate. 

‘I just think, “Do what you want, Jack, mate. You’re a young kid as well.”

‘You’ve got to realise how young they are. These are young football players that have got the world at their feet.’
