Manchester City have just concluded their best ever season by winning an incredible treble under Pep Guardiola. The blue half of Manchester won the Premier League title and added an FA Cup trophy to it. The biggest of the lot came in the end – Champions League. It was the most sought-after prize for Man City in recent years, something they finally managed this season. After beating Inter Milan 1-0 in the final, Man City players partied hard.

The player who gained a lot of unnecessary spotlight for his wild celebrations was Jack Grealish. He opened up about his much-talked about celebration during the England duty. “I don’t think it is a party boy thing. I would never sit here and lie to you and say ‘Yeah, I don’t drink and I don’t party’ because I do but then there’s so many people that will come here and say to you ‘I don’t do this, I don’t do that’ when they do,” he was quoted as saying by

“I’m just truthful because when you see me doing anything, you’d be like: ‘Oh, hold on. He said a few weeks ago in an interview that he didn’t do that’. But listen, I just enjoy myself, I’m living my dream of playing for the best club in the world in my opinion, we’ve just won the treble so I’m going to obviously have a break now with my family and my friends and then I’ll be raring to go again in four weeks.”

‘It’s something that may never happen again’

Grealish spoke about how he was over the moon with winning the treble, something he feels might “never happen again.” “I knew (what) I was doing, that’s just the way I am, I’m like that when I party usually. Actually, I’m not like that usually but we’ve won the treble and it’s something that (may) never happen again. So I went and enjoyed myself and I wasn’t the only one – I think a lot of the time you’ll see everyone recording me, I could show you all this stuff of other people where they were the same,” he added.

“Listen, we all enjoyed ourselves, other people enjoy themselves where the cameras weren’t but that was just me enjoying myself, I’d had the most successful season of my life. Years ago, you’d have a season for nine months, I’ve just laid out a 12-month season. I’ve been to a World Cup, I’ve won three trophies and then I’m going to be back training now in four weeks or so, why not enjoy myself?”

Jack Grealish on Gareth Southgate

Grealish also assured that he has a great relationship with England head coach Gareth Southgate, as he spoke in detail about when he joined the England camp following the season’s conclusion. “I don’t know what you guys read and think sometimes. I have a great relationship with him (Southgate), honestly. A brilliant relationship. I kind of knew in the back of my head that I wouldn’t play on the Friday (against Malta). But even so, I came into camp on Tuesday night, I was a bit hungover but I wasn’t drunk or anything,” he added.

“I came into camp with the other guys, we slept then woke up and trained on Wednesday. We trained on Thursday and, like I said, in the back of my mind, I knew I wasn’t going to play on the Friday. Then on the Saturday, I trained and trained well. Then on the Sunday. I thought it was going to be a toss-up with who plays. I came on (against Macedonia) and I’m just happy. I’ve had a brilliant season, the most successful season of my life and I think there is a time now I can just sit and relax. My emotions have been so high. When I was sitting in the camp on Thursday, it was the biggest high I’d been on in my whole life at the weekend. You come into the camp, you sit on your own in your room and think ‘Will I ever feel that high again?’.”
