Jack Grealish Labelled A 'Moron' For Off-Field Antics After Being Dropped By Manchester City

TalkSPORT co-host Simon Jordon has branded Jack Grealish a "moron" for off-the-field actions that meant he was left out of Manchester City's Premier League clash on Sunday.

It was reported that Grealish and teammate Phil Foden were dropped for City's game against Newcastle after they were pictured in a nightclub following the club's 7-0 win over Leeds United.

The Telegraph went on to claim that City were unhappy with both Grealish and Foden's condition when they arrived for a recovery session the next day.

Pep Guardiola proceeded to warn the pair over their conduct. "It was not rotation. I decided on this team because they deserved to play today, these guys and not the other ones," he said post-match.

"At Christmas time I pay a lot of attention to behaviour on and off the pitch. And when off the pitch is not proper, they are not going to play.

"So we have to be focused all the time because of distractions at Christmas time and everything that happens - you have to still be focused."


TalkSPORT co-host Simon Jordon has since ripped into Grealish for his off-field antics. You can watch his rant below.

Jordan said: “They’ve had their cards marked now. Foden was away on International duty, he got royally castigated for that. 

“We have seen that behaviour in the international camp. He has had his card marked at club level.

“Grealish is a moron. He’s a moron. I don’t care if he’s a good lad or not, if you repeat the same circumstances and put yourself in the way of it. You give yourself an opportunity to rebuild the reputation he had. He earned the reputation of being a bit of a Herbert back in the day and he got rid of that reputation.

“People saw him laying around drunk on benches in the summer, which he is entitled to do. Not what you want to see from professional sports men and not what you see from Olympic sprinters and tennis players, lounging around drunk as a skunk in Tenerife, but that’s what footballers do sometimes.

“Jack Grealish shed that image and then bang… he’s being judged by his football. Next thing he is standing on the side of the road, half-cut, in a pair of slippers.

“The next thing we see when he’s just establishing himself, and he isn’t playing well for Man City, and he is in the eye of a storm for turning up at training not in a condition befitting.

“That, by my definition, is a moron.”
