EPL: Pep Guardiola hails Jack Grealish after Wolves win

Pep Guardiola hails Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish’s performance in Manchester City’s victory over Wolves at Molineux on Saturday has been praised by Pep Guardiola.

Within a minute, the English forward scored his first goal of the year to get his team going. Erling Haaland and Phil Foden then added a second and third goals to give Guardiola’s team a clean sweep of the three points.

Guardiola emphasised that he trusts all of his players to perform while discussing Grealish’s performance with the media after the victory: “They are here because I trust them unconditionally, all of them. I know them. I trust them unconditionally and Jack is not an exception.

“He scored a goal and it was a good performance. Every time he has the ball it’s one against one against the full-back all the time. Ok he didn’t score or assist [until today] but it’s a question of time.”

“I have confidence in all of them and they have to play for them. Of course I am happy for him, for the victory, for his incredible personality to play. That’s why I am happy for the goal he scored.

“We have to admit it [that the £100m fee is a burden for Grealish]. He has to be who he is, that is all. Good moments, bad moments everyone has.

“The important thing is ‘I am Jack Grealish, I play like I am. I go there with a good mentality and try to do the best for myself to help all of us’. That is all I want for him and everyone.”
