Jack Grealish Mocked Phil Foden Over Lost Champions League Final

Jack Grealish is about to be teammates with Phil Foden, according to reports, and last time they met up the Aston Villa forward took the opportunity to take a shot at the Manchester City man.

There was only a couple of weeks between City losing the Champions League final to Chelsea and the players starting their Euro 2020 campaign with England.

You might have thought that Grealish would have wanted to make sure his England teammates Foden, Raheem Sterling, John Stones and Kyle Walker were all okay after the loss.

Instead the Villa captain took the chance to make sure they were the butt of a joke, and made sure Foden heard what he said, in a wonderful moment of banter.

In conversation with Jordan Henderson, the Aston Villa forward asked about wearing suits to the final and then joked "It's annoying when they try and change it up for a final and you get beat," with Foden in earshot.

The 21-year-old's response is absolutely brilliant in the background as he sits with his mouth wide open before looking away.

Of course, City really did 'try and change it up' in the final, with Pep Guardiola deciding to go for a different set up against Thomas Tuchel's side.

The Chelsea boss, who only joined the Blues in January, had beaten City twice earlier in the season so Guardiola dropped both Fernandinho and Rodri, played top scorer Ilkay Gundogan in defensive midfield and brought in Sterling, who hadn't played much in the latter part of the season.

Grealish, along with the others, then suffered his own final heartbreak, as the Three Lions lost on penalties to Italy at Wembley last month.

Now it looks like Grealish is set to be playing alongside Foden, and the rest of the City cohort, trying to win the club's first European title.

The 25-year-old has never played European football before, so the upcoming season's Champions League will be his first taste of it.

Grealish will have to play with the pressure of being the most expensive British player ever, unless Harry Kane also joins Pep Guardiola's team this summer.

According to reports, the forward will also have to get used to playing as a number eight again, instead of a 10 or wide forward, as that's how the City boss intends to use him.
