Aston Villa fans let their feelings known about Man City’s bid for captain Jack Grealish

‘You can shove your £100m up you’re a***’: Aston Villa fans take aim at Man City during pre-season friendly as Pep Guardiola tries to poach talisman Jack Grealish – even though he wasn’t playing in 3-0 victory over Bristol City

  • Grealish wasn’t at Ashton Gate but it felt like he was as fans chanted his name
  • Manchester City’s £100million bid for Aston Villa’s captain is still to be accepted
  • But it’s understood the club are prepared to let their skipper go this summer 











Jack Grealish wasn’t at Ashton Gate but it felt like he was as Aston Villa supporters chanted his name throughout.

By the time 19-year-old Jaden Bidace broke the deadlock in the sixth minute, the 1,500 visiting fans still pouring into the ground were already loudly chanting ‘super Jack Grealish’ in honour of their hero.

The chants – supplemented by ‘You can shove your £100million up you’re a****’ – continued, but their efforts might well be in vain.

Manchester City’s £100million bid for Villa’s captain is still to be accepted.

But it’s understood the Midlanders are prepared to let their skipper go and so it is a case of whether the 25-year-old wants to join the Premier League champions, and £10million-rated winger Morgan Rogers is prepared to move in the other direction.

If this was a taste of what life after Grealish, Villa fans won’t be crying into their beer.

The breakthrough came as Bidace, who made his Premier League debut in May, tapped home Ollie Watkins’s left-wing cross from close range.

Ashley Young – at 36, the oldest player on the pitch – rolled back the years when he rattled the crossbar with a curling free kick.

A goalkeeping error a minute before half-time produced Villa’s second goal.

John McGinn’s curling free kick looked comfortable for Dan Bentley, but he spilled the ball and Ezri Konsa prodded home.

The hosts dominated the first quarter of an hour of the second half, but couldn’t finish and were further compromised in the 61st minute by a third Villa goal.

El Ghazi crossed from the left and Watkins headed home from inside the six-yard box.

However, if the game against Bristol on Saturday was a taste of what life after Grealish, Villa fans won’t be crying into their beer as they won comfortably
