Aston Villa Fan Sets Jack Grealish Shirt Alight With Blowtorch After £100 Million Manchester City Move

An angry Aston Villa supporter reacted to Jack Grealish's £100 million move to Manchester City by burning his shirt and filming it.

The Premier League champions activated the Villa skipper's release clause and signed Grealish up to a six-year contract.


As was the case with Gareth Barry and Fabian Delph when they swapped Villa Park for the Etihad Stadium, plenty of Villa fans are not taking Grealish's departure well.


One fan posted a video of himself in the garden setting Grealish's shirt alight to show his disdain for a player he once adored.

The man, who was topless, held the Grealish shirt over a wall and positioned the camera so it would capture him burning the jersey by blowtorching and using a lighter and flammable spray substance.


After the blazing, he held up the shirt to the camera and revealed a substantial hole where the lettering was.

The clip was posted by the fan with a caption slamming boyhood Villa fan Grealish.

The supporter wrote on Twitter: "What an absolute snake he is #AVFC #Grealish. @JackGrealish don't show your face in B6 ever again rat."

Despite the fury towards Grealish from sections on the fanbase, those within the club have no ill-feelings and wish him well in his next step.


Although he was said to be "absolutely torn" over the decision, the 25-year-old's desire to win trophies is the key factor in him leaving Villa and the club appreciate his viewpoint.

Grealish joined Villa when he was six and made over 200 appearances for his boyhood club
