'He'll probably be loaned out': TalkSPORT pundit slams Manchester City star after Liverpool clash
TalkSPORT’s Tony Cascarino has slammed Manchester City star Jack Grealish and insisted a loan move isn’t out of the question if he doesn’t improve.
Grealish has so far shown only flashes of the brilliance which saw City part ways with £100m for him. He helped them win the Premier League title but so far, hasn’t quite hit the levels he did with Villa.
And according to TalkSPORT’s Cascarino, Grealish needs to step up to the plate or risk falling by the wayside under Pep Guardiola.
“Jack has got an issue. You can’t be a £100m player and be OK, your standard is higher than that. City’s standard is higher than that and he has been six out of ten too often,” Cascarino said on TalkSPORT.
“At the end of the season, if he doesn’t pick up his standards, what we know he’s capable of and why they paid £100m for him, he’ll probably be loaned out or he might end up back at Villa. He’s not playing well enough consistently for Man City. I’m not talking about being OK, six out of tens. He should be eight or nine. He’s got so much quality.”
Grealish struggled at times yesterday against a resolute Liverpool defence. With Raheem Sterling sold to Chelsea, the England man will need to step up to the plate this season.
TBR’s View: Grealish Can Succeed At City
He hasn’t really been a failure of a signing but City fans will be entitled to think they might get a bit more from a £100m signing.
Grealish has more than enough talent to succeed, though. And if he can just find a bit of consistency with regular game time, the player we all saw at Villa should shine through.
Cascarino has a point here, albeit his comment on being loaned out seems a bit extreme.
