It’s beyond frustrating when one of your favourite footballers leaves the club. The frustration becomes even more painful when you find out that the old kit with the said player’s name has now been rendered obsolete.
Lots of Aston Villa fans suffered the same fate when Jack Grealish moved to Manchester City in a £100m move a few days ago.
Though, one of them has found a genius way to keep using the old shirt without representing the now-Man City player with a brilliant DIY solution.
Danny Ings’ spectacular overhead kick goal wasn’t the only highlight of Aston Villa’s 2-0 win against Newcastle United.
Matchgoers at Villa Park were amused to see how one of the fans had taped all over Grealish’s name at the back of his shirt.
The photo of the kit soon made its way online and Twitter absolutely loved the modification on display –

This Villa fan putting tape over Jack Grealish’s name on the back of his shirt at today’s game against Newcastle is the sort of pettiness we can all get behind. pic.twitter.com/2oW9WgWaw9— HLTCO (@HLTCO) August 21, 2021

We love Jack Grealish, but we also love this Villa fan’s commitment to disowning his name. 🤠😀 pic.twitter.com/mssexznJXC— RICHMOND NDELLE (@richmond_ndelle) August 22, 2021
