Pep Guardiola has defended Jack Grealish after the City winger had made a slow start to this season. Grealish was a key part of last season’s treble success but an injury and Jeremy Doku’s sparkling form have kept Grealish out of City’s starting lineup.
Speaking ahead of City’s UEFA Champions League Group G clash with Young Boys the Cuty boss defended Grealish. Guardiola told the assembled media that the England international needed time to find his best form. He said: “I don’t have one second or piece of doubt about Jack and his quality and what he has done for us since he arrived two years ago, and especially last season. He needs rhythm- he’s not like Phil Foden or Bernardo who need two or three training sessions to be ready. He’s incredibly focused to get back and we’re going to use him and we believe he will help us.”
