Grealish reveals Solskjær flirtation: – It was very close

– I have done well so far, but I have a lot more to give. It has been much tougher than I thought it would be, says Grealish, who has scored three goals and provided three assists for his new club.

He admits that he has not lived up to the enormous expectations he has had for himself.

– If you have a price tag of 1.2 billion kroner, people will ask if you are worth the money when goals and goal-giving passes are missing. I understand that, but I have to look at it as a privilege that the club would spend so much money on me. I want to give back to the club in terms of goals and titles, says Gralish, who believes he is still in a habituation phase in Manchester City.

– Some other players need a year to adapt to a new team, and maybe it’s like that for me too. I hope I will have more goal points next year, says the English national team player.

He has also been impressed by the professionalism of his new club.

– That is unbelievable! There is an extremely high standard both on and off the field. I understand why the team has had success for so many years now, says Grealish.

The high demands on both sides of the chalk line, Grealish has noticed in several ways. Recently, he and teammate Phil Foden were benched after celebrating the 7-0 victory over Leeds at a nightclub.

– I follow the behavior off the field very well. And when what happens off the field is not good, they will not play, Guardiola explained to the BBC.
