A true icon
Jack Grealish has captured the hearts of the nation ever since Manchester City completed the treble as he rightly celebrates their success.
Grealish has been on the party of all parties since the moment the final whistle went in Istanbul, staying out until 5am before jetting to Ibiza to continue the session with some of his teammates.
Even after arriving back in England, there was no sign of Grealish slowing down ahead of the parade and the 27-year-old was in fine form as the players and staff celebrated with their fans.
Here are some of his best moments:
Grealish’s undying love for Bernardo Silva
Bernardo Silva’s future has been up in the air for a while, but it’s clear to see how much he means to the City players and in particular, Grealish.
The Portugal international was instrumental in their run to the treble and Grealish was seen begging for the winger to stay amid reports of Silva being in talks with Paris Saint-Germain.
In the video, he could be seen saying: “Please don’t go” and later on, decided to dedicate the famous Abba song ‘Voulez-Vous’ to Silva after a questionable ode to the 28-year-old.
He said: “There’s one person in this team I absolutely adore… and he looks homeless. His name is Bernardo Silva.” Grealish then managed to get the crowd to sing the song back to him. A true bromance.
‘The turkey needs feeding’
This saying is going to be doing the rounds for quite a while now I think.
Rightly so, Grealish has enjoyed a drink or two with his celebrations and has adopted a new catchphrase for whenever he needs a top up.
While being interviewed at the parade, the England international cut short his speech to inform everyone that “the turkey needs feeding”.
As requested, Grealish was promptly given a healthy dose of what appeared to be vodka while *attempting* to pose like a turkey. True cojones on him right there.
It wasn’t his only catchphrase of the day. ‘The pigeon is thirsty’ was also used however which one sticks more is for him to decide.
Parading around in his hi-vis jacket was an absolute joy to watch. From standing on the top of the bus to whipping the crowd into a frenzy, he was loving every second.
Haaland’s champagne shower
One thing Grealish takes huge pride in his hair. Every week, it’s immaculate and that was no different for the parade however teammate Erling Haaland had other ideas after pouring a huge bottle of champagne over him.
Can’t work out if he was shocked, angry or upset his hair was no longer perfect.
Grealish is meant to report for England international duty with three of his fellow Man City teammates but if he doesn’t end up featuring against Malta or North Macedonia, then I think we can all agree that he deserves a good break.
