The last English to move to Golden Ball (2001)Former striker Michael Owen has revealed his doubts about Jack Grealish’s arrival at Manchester City. Speaking to the former British broadcaster, Sky Sports,LiverpoolAnd real Madrid NS Manchester United He mentioned that the 10 shirt does not fit in Citizens.

“I am a big fan of Jack Grealish. He is brave and demands the ball even under pressure. He is exceptional. He will be successful because he is a very good player who plays for a very good team. On another team? Maybe not I don’t think he necessarily suits Manchester City.”

To back up his argument, the former England striker pointed out that the only statistic the City player has led so far is the errors he has gotten. In his opinion, this is not what Manchester FC needs at the moment.

“He’s the most fouled player in the Premier League, but I don’t think City want that. When City fouled him in the final third of the field, they put the ball back in play and started again.. Grealish is great, but he doesn’t fit like a glove. He will score, But it doesn’t fit like a glove.”

Finally, Owen made up his mind and said how the most expensive promotion in City’s history could start paying more on the pitch at the club.

“He used to be the best on the team [no Aston Villa]. Play now with other great players. He has to learn to trust his teammates and try to do things faster.”
