Man City Respond To Reports Jack Grealish Had Been Turned Away From Bar For Being 'Too Drunk'

Manchester City have responded to reports claiming Jack Grealish was turned away from a city centre bar for being 'too drunk'.

A damning video appeared to show Grealish being denied entry to Albert's Schloss ​on Sunday night.

He was joined by teammates Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez, who were also refused entry to the swanky Bavarian-style beer house.​

Grealish, who looked worse for wear, was accompanied by a club liaison officer who led him away from the scene. 

Man City, though, insist the £100 million man enjoyed a 'civilised night', according to reports via The Sun

Club sources confirmed the incident was down to an 'admin error' rather than the England international being intoxicated.

It's claimed that the players usually enter the premises through a side door but when that was close, they tried to get in via the main entrance. 

But the door staff had no evidence of their booking and would not let them in. 

Instead, Grealish, Walker and Mahrez visited a nearby restaurant ​for the rest of the evening.

Pep Guardiola's squad were in training for a warm-down session during the morning of Sunday after beating Fulham 4-1 on Saturday.

He had given them the day off on Monday and were back in training today ahead of their Premier League fixture against Brentford on Wednesday. 

This isn't the first time Grealish has found himself in hot water over a night out. 

He was dropped, alongside Phil Foden, from Man City's 4-0 victory over Newcastle United last December after they had been pictured out in town.

Asked if their exclusion was down to rotation, Guardiola replied: "It was not rotation, no.

"I decided on this team because they deserved to play - these guys and not the other ones."

The Man City boss added: "At Christmas 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.

"We must be focused all the time because of distractions at Christmas and everything that happens. You have to still be focused."
