Jack Grealish Says He'd Be A 'Club Promoter In Ibiza' If He Wasn't A Footballer


Jack Grealish Says He'd Be A 'Club Promoter In Ibiza' If He Wasn't A Footballer

Forget being a plasterer like his dad, Jack Grealish would be a club promoter in Tenerife or Ibiza if he wasn't an absolute baller on the pitch.


The England superstar hilariously admitted that he couldn't be a plasterer like his old man, brilliantly revealing what he'd do if he wasn't a footballer.

He also said that he'd be travelling everywhere with his mates to watch the Three Lions.


The Aston Villa captain told The Guardian: "If I wasn't a footballer and I was just with my mates, I would just be doing what they're doing.

"I'd be travelling everywhere watching England, being in pubs and stuff. I think I'd be at BoxPark. I've seen a few videos of that and it looked unreal.

"I'm just a normal kid and, as I've grown up [in football], that's probably one of the hardest things.

"I speak to my family about it all the time because when I go out and do stuff and I look at what my friends are doing... I'd love to be like that sometimes and just go and do stuff.

"Of course, I've made mistakes. When I first came on the scene, no one knew me and I could do anything I wanted to and then, playing in the FA Cup semi-final and final for Villa [as a 19-year-old in 2015]... everyone knew who I was.

"It was difficult to deal with but I have matured so much. Deep down, I am still the same Jack. I will never not be that person."


Asked what line of professional he would have gone down if football hadn't worked out, he replied: "I couldn't be a plasterer."

The 25-year-old added: "I'd be a club promoter. Tenerife or Ibiza. I would be getting everyone into the club."

Grealish played a bit-part role in England's first two group matches, before starring against Czech Republic - creating his side's only goal of the game.


He was reduced to a role on the bench against Germany, but made an instant impact when he came off - setting up Harry Kane in their 2-0 win at Wembley Stadium.
