Manchester City midfielder Jack Grealish has hit out at pundits in England, including a certain Liverpool legend.

Grealish joined the Citizens from Aston Villa in 2021 for a club-record fee of £100 million, however the midfielder is yet to replicate the form he showed at Villa Park.

Grealish has now been involved in a war of words with Reds legend Greame Souness who criticised him for responding to critics this season.

"I often feel like I just do exactly the same things as the other players, but people talk about them because it is me doing them," Grealish told L'Equipe.

"That's exactly what I said in relation to Souness - he always has something to say about me. And he responded by saying I can't take criticism.

"Today, we, the footballers, if we allow ourselves to respond to something said about us, we are portrayed as if we are people who cannot stand criticism.

"Sometimes I want to say to them [pundits in England], "Leave me alone a bit and focus on someone else" so that I can focus on my game. Because there is always this noise around me."
