Man City: Wenger criticizes Grealish

show more…

Jack Grealish (26 years old, 36 games and 5 goals in all competitions this season) is having a complicated first season at Manchester City. Little spared by critics due to his very average performance for a player bought for 117.5 million euros, the English international winger was targeted by Arsène Wenger after the elimination of the Citizens against Real Madrid in the semi-final return of the Champions League (1-3 ap). The former Arsenal coach did not appreciate the behavior of the ex-Aston Villa player on Madrid’s second goal.

“Look at 1-1, when Grealish is against Carvajal he gets passed easily, too easily. He absolutely has to fight to stop that cross! You don’t want the ball in the box, anything can happen when everyone advances That’s where City didn’t secure the game, in the way they defended down the flanks. Because they conceded chances. Even when you look at Benzema’s save (on the 1-1 goal, editor’s note), they didn’t really attack the ball. They made big mistakes”, judged the Alsatian for beIN Sports.
