Man City midfielder Grealish: Is De Bruyne right about English media?

Manchester City midfielder Jack Grealish says he’s learning how to cope with increased scrutiny and criticism.

The attacking midfielder, who was signed for £100m by City from Aston Villa, also responded to remarks from club team-mate Kevin de Bruyne who suggested that English players are treated more harshly in the media.

“I can obviously see where he’s coming from a little bit,” said Grealish.

“But I think that’s just the way it is in this country, especially if you’re myself, playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world, who are winning trophies every single year.

“Obviously when I have the price tag on my head that I have, people are going to want to talk. It’s just something that I need to [get on with].

“I keep going back to it, saying embrace it and it’s just part and parcel, but I do see where he’s coming from a little bit.”
