Jack Grealish’ Controversies
The famous footballer Jack has been into many controversies and often receives criticism not being professional.
In 2015, Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood warned him after he was pictured inhaling nitrous oxide.
“We can’t condone that behaviour. He is now in a responsible position as a professional footballer, he’s got to make sure it won’t happen again”.
In 2016, Grealish was under investigation by Aston Villa after he was reportedly partying all night at a hotel. Moreover, he allegedly violated government guidance to stay home during the COVID breakout in 2019 for which he was by the club.

He is often criticized for allegedly diving to get penalties. Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol talked about how he easily he throws himself to the ground and said:
“Jack Grealish throws himself on the ground 50 times a game. I was actually looking at the clock today. The first time he went down was just under a minute on the clock. The next one was on three minutes! [It’s] Most embarrassing. He threw himself on the ground where the dugouts were. Just embarrassing. He is a brilliant player. He really spoils it for me when I’m watching.”
However, Grealish defended himself with the stats that he is the most fouled player in the 2020–21 Premier League season. He said that the defenders make mistakes and foul him to stop him which gives away more penalties and free kicks.
