Jack Grealish reportedly set to be sidelined for 2/3 weeks with a groin injury

Manchester City winger Jack Grealish is reportedly set for a stint on the sidelines. The England international was substituted early in the first half of his team’s 3-1 win over FC Copenhagen at the Parken Stadium.

Mike McGrath reports for the Telegraph that Jack Grealish is expected to be out for two to three weeks with a groin injury. Furthermore, McGrath adds that if Grealish’s recovery from the injury goes to plan he should be back in time to represent England in their friendlies against Brazil and Belgium next month.

Speaking following Manchester City’s win over FC Copenhagen Pep Guardiola said that Grealish was devastated to go off injured. The winger had looked in good form before injury struck. Guardiola said post-game: “Something muscular so maybe it’s a little bit… the groin. I don’t know. These kinds of games, we need these kind of tempos, the control. Bernardo and Jack helped us to keep that up and make the passes in the right moment. It’s a pity that Jack got injured but it is what it is. He was gutted but he wants to play for sure.”

A further update is expected on the condition of Jack Grealish when Pep Guardiola speaks with the media before his team clashes with Chelsea tomorrow. It is a blow for the world champions to lose such a valuable player with City in the midst of such a busy schedule. The hope will be that Grealish can return to his best when he does return from injury.
