Aston Villa Fans Rattled By Manchester City's Peaky Blinders-Inspired Tweet Featuring Jack Grealish

Manchester City have been ruthlessly mocked by Aston Villa fans after posting a Peaky Blinders-inspired tweet featuring new signing Jack Grealish.

The Premier League champions smashed the British transfer record by splashing out a whopping £100m to sign Grealish from Villa this summer.

Grealish was a top target for City boss Pep Guardiola and his future at Villa Park was uncertain at the end of the Premier League season.

The former Villa captain was born in Birmingham and spent nine years with his boyhood club's first team ahead of his move to City.

It appeared City rubbed salt in the wounds of Villa supporters by posting a Peaky Blinders poster featuring Kyle Walker, Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling and Grealish.

However, it might have backfired on City after the savage replies they received to their tweet, which included fans pointing out the Peaky Blinders' Birmingham origins.

The England international came off the bench in the second half of City's 1-0 defeat to Leicester City in the Community Shield at Wembley on Saturday.

Speaking after his signing, Grealish admitted that he couldn't turn down a "dream" opportunity to play in the Champions League with City.

"It was obviously a difficult few months because I have been an Aston Villa fan for my whole life, but when I spoke to the manager here and you see what type of players they have got here, in the end it was something I couldn't say no to," he said.

"Competing for major trophies is something that I wanted to do. It was something I couldn't turn down.

"Playing in the Champions League was a massive thing for me, I haven't done that yet. When I was sitting there on a Tuesday or Wednesday night last year it was just what I wanted to do. To be able to do it with this club is going to be a dream.

"I had a long chat with [Pep Guardiola] about positions and stuff like that, all football. It was such a positive chat and shows why I want to play under him.

"The way this team is set up to play suits me down to a tee, the way the manager likes to play suits me."
