It was a total celebratory mood that engulfed the blue side of Manchester last month as Man City successfully defended their Premier League crown. It was not an easy campaign for the club which saw heavy competition from Liverpool and ultimately could seal the title with a one-point lead on the final day.
While some of the regular faces at Etihad such as Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva picked up their fourth PL title, the new man Jack Grealish secured his first PL title and made a point to celebrate it in style.
The Englishman was spotted leading the celebrations during the team’s open-top bus parade following which he was also spotted celebrating with City supporters outside the stadium in large numbers.
The ex-Villa man was in such high spirits that he even took the time to mock his teammate Bernardo Silva while doing an interview, where he remarked, “I want to thank everyone – but the main person I want to thank is Bernardo Silva for coming off in the 70th-minute because he was miles off it yesterday.”
Despite the City celebrations having concluded and Grealish reporting himself for international duty, the Englishman has continued to remain in a jovial fashion.
After having done a number of Silva, Grealish’s next victim has been James Maddison. When the Leicester man took to Instagram to reveal his new look for the holidays where he sported a khaki shirt with matching shorts, the Gucci ambassador did not hesitate to compare Maddison to famed Australian Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin in the comments as he replied, ‘Naaaaa man said Steve Irwin’.
During his time as a zookeeper and conservationist, Irwin would regularly don a khaki shirt with matching shorts which soon became his trademark attire while dealing with wild animals such as crocodiles.
As Maddison’s new wardrobe addition is almost identical to Irwin’s uniform, Grealish’s comment was a hit amongst football fans and currently remains the most liked comment under Maddison’s post.
Having taken down both Bernardo Silva and James Maddison on social media, football fans would now be curious to find out Grealish’s next victim from club or country.
