Manchester City Teammates Give Jack Grealish New Nickname After Atletico Madrid Win

Jack Grealish isn't the only one who can hand out new nicknames, with the Manchester City forward being handed one after his clash with Stefan Savic.

The closing stages of Manchester City's 0-0 draw with Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night, and the aftermath in the tunnel, was quite the wild ride.

It all kicked off when Felipe fouled Phil Foden, and the City forward then rolled back onto the pitch to waste some time. Former City flop Savic wasn't happy with Atletico being handed a taste of their own sh*thouse medicine so attempted to pick Foden up.

Grealish could be quite visibly seen giving Savic a new name, as he told him he'd see him next Tuesday, perhaps they're going to the Liverpool vs Manchester United game together...

The feud, and the fall out since, has now landed the City man a new nickname, with the Mirror claiming that his teammates are now referring to Grealish as 'Peaky Jack.'

Obviously the name is a reference to BBC drama show Peaky Blinders, and the gang that the show takes its title from, which is bases in Birmingham.

It works perfectly with the fact that's where Grealish is from and because he's clearly willing to get himself involved in all sorts of mischief, although hopefully not the same as the actual gang.

The rivalry between Grealish and Savic actually started last week, during the first leg, when the £100 million man came on as a substitute late in the game.

Grealish managed to wind up two Atleti players without doing much and it led to the Montenegro defender telling the forward "I'll have you in Madrid."

City were somewhat lucky on the night that Diego Simeone's side couldn't find the back of the net, especially late on, and they kept hold of their 1-0 lead on aggregate.

The result means that they're through to just their third ever Champions League semi-final, as they look to become European champions for the first time.

They will return to Madrid on May 4th for their semi, when they face Real Madrid, and at least Pep Guardiola knows that Simeone won't be giving Carlo Ancelotti any advice on how to be his side.

The Premier League champions are still chasing the Treble this season, whilst rivals Liverpool are still trying to win an unprecedented quadruple.
