Jack Grealish played impressively in Man City’s 1-0 victory over Arsenal in the fourth round of the FA Cup at dawn on January 28 (Hanoi time).
When asked by Man City’s media team about the choice between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo – who is better personally, Grealish took a long time to make a decision. In the end, Man City’s £100 million contract chose Messi.
The English midfielder also admitted that he preferred to assist his teammates rather than directly score. This also explains why the Man City star chose Messi, who is better at creating assists than Ronaldo. In this season, Grealish also plays the role of a passer in Man City’s system more than a finisher. On all fronts, the former Aston Villa star has 3 assists and 2 goals.
Grealish seems to change his opinion because in 2012, he publicly praised Ronaldo on his personal page. “Ronado or Messi, sorry but Ronaldo is the best, ladies and gentlemen,” the English midfielder wrote on his personal page.
Grealish also highly appreciated Kevin De Bruyne when he said that the Belgian midfielder is the best player in the world if Messi and Ronaldo are not counted. “He (De Bruyne – PV) has unbelievable skills and abilities,” said the 27-year-old midfielder. “Apart from Messi and Ronaldo, Kevin could be the best footballer in the world.”
After receiving a lot of criticism last season, Grealish gradually played better in the Man City shirt this season. In Man City’s 1-0 victory over Arsenal in the fourth round of the FA Cup at dawn on January 28 (Hanoi time), the most expensive player in English football history played the full 90 minutes and performed well. It was he who assisted Nathan Ake to score the only goal to beat Arsenal. Pep Guardiola also let Grealish start in the last 3 matches of Man City.
