Manchester City forward Jack Grealish has admitted he still finds one question from his mother difficult to answer.

The 28-year-old might have won the treble last season, and be a key player for England, but that doesn’t appease everyone.

Grealish became the most expensive British player in 2021 when he joining Man City from Aston Villa in a £100million deal, but this has since been surpassed by Declan Rice who cost Arsenal £105m.

His first two campaigns were a success at the Etihad but the Three Lions star has endured a tough season blighted by several injuries.

He made a return to action as his side drew 0-0 with Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon – but received a dressing down from Pep Guardiola at full-time.

And despite being adored by Man City fans, it is the total opposite when playing away from home, and he can’t get his head around it – and neither can his mother.

“I always think about it. I always wonder, ‘why do they boo me?’ – and my mum always asks me about it as well,” he said.

“But I don’t actually know why it happens. At every single away ground I go to now, I get booed and I’m not entirely sure why it is – I just have to try and take it as a positive or a compliment.”

City took on Villa at the Etihad on Wednesday night and even then he could not escape the boos from the away end.

Every time he touched the ball, jeers could be heard from the visiting section of the stadium and he was taunted with every miscued touch or pass.

Grealish has already won six trophies with his current employers helping to silence his critics.

He was part of his side’s historic treble, helping Man City to their first-ever Champions League triumph last campaign.

His side remains in the hunt for three trophies this campaign, looking to get their hands on three trophies once against – the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup.

Man City are currently third in the English top flight, on 63 points, behind both Arsenal and league leaders Liverpool.
