Ex-Man City keeper James: Pep and Grealish good for eachother


Former Manchester City goalkeeper David James is full of praise for Jack Grealish this season.

James believes the former Aston Villa captain has become a major player for City.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "Jack Grealish looked like a player who wants to win the league.

"He was fantastic last season as well, he wasn't anywhere near bad. I know he got a lot of question marks about him. The reason I said he 'wants to win the league' is because now they're chasing Arsenal and last season it was City who were dominant and Liverpool were trying to catch them.

"I love Grealish - he's carried himself so well since he's been at City. There have been question marks of his price tag but he's continued to perform. And more importantly he's continued to perform the way Pep needs him to perform as opposed to him showing something different.

"It's a combination of him being such a talented footballer and also the way Pep knew Grealish was going to be part of City's makeup. If they are to win the league, which they obviously have a chance of doing, then Jack again will be a major part of that."
