Manchester City’s title celebrations have led to Simon Jordan calling Jack Grealish a “moron”, as the drunken star aimed tongue-in-cheek digs and called out Miguel Almiron
Jack Grealish has been called a “moron” by talkSport host Simon Jordan after calling out Newcastle star Miguel Almiron during Manchester City’s Premier League title celebrations.
Videos of Grealish circled the internet as he joked about some of his team-mates as City paraded their league title around the streets of Manchester, and he even used Almiron to aim a dig at Riyad Mahrez. Of course, his comments weren’t serious, and some team-mates even bit back and targeted Grealish as well.
However, Jordan hasn’t found the funny side and has called out Grealish for not only lacking intelligence, but also called him out for not being a key part of City’s title success this season. The rant continued; Grealish was even called a “moron” in a brutal criticism.
Grealish compared Mahrez to Almiron for his performance on the final day to try and annoy his team-mate, but the fact he was disrespectful to the Newcastle star upset Jordan. The host ranted on talkSport after seeing the clip and said: “The bottom line is it takes Jack Grealish back to where he belongs – in moron territory. Engaging his mouth before he engages his brain.
“There’s no problem with him having banter with his teammates, that’s absolutely fine. If someone was to say he was taking the mickey out of Riyad Mahrez, you’d say it was banter, they’ve got that rapport.
“But if you take it out of another domain and you pick another player, single him out, and ridicule him because you think you’re in a position to do so, where’s that going to end? Someone somewhere is going to say, ‘ By the way, who are you? ‘
“What gives you the right to make that comparison? Why would you want to do it? Where does your arrogance stop and intelligence begin? I’m sure he meant it tongue-in-cheek, but why pick on an individual player?
“Obviously in the back of his mind, he thinks that player is probably not good, and that’s his prerogative, but why does he need to do that to that particular player when Man City are talking about their success? Why does he think he is on a platform where he can look down on that player?
“Jack Grealish is a talented player, he’s a long way from being a £ 100million player. He’s incredibly fortuitous to be playing for a club like Man City that has enabled him to win a Premier League, because I do not think his contribution has taken Man City to that Premier League title.

“I think he’s a bit-part player, so he would have been better served saying, ‘Take me off the pitch’ more. It’s a lack of awareness.” City was certainly enjoying himself as he lifted his first ever Premier League title, but he was not the only one.
Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva were also seen enjoying themselves as City turned the streets of Manchester blue, and even Pep Guardiola enjoyed his trademark cigar from the team bus. It was their fourth title in five years, as they have dominated England alongside challengers Liverpool.
But their celebrations won’t be going on all summer, as Guardiola knows that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side will be looking to bounce back next season. And with Erling Haaland arriving, they will be excited to get pre-season underway.
