“I’d done something that comes around once in a lifetime. The last time it was done…I don’t know when Man United did it, but it hasn’t been done for ages.”

“So why not celebrate like that? Everyone was with me. I wasn’t on my own, going out with my friends. I was with the whole team.”
“We enjoyed ourselves the Saturday, Sunday, Monday. I had the best weekend of my whole life. I’d just won the Champions League and I was so emotional after it.”
Grealish was a key part of the Manchester City’s success post the December FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
