Jack Grealish has been officially presented to fans and the media as a Manchester City player.
City announced the arrival of Grealish in a British record transfer of £100million last week but, due to the club’s participation in Saturday’s Community Shield, were only able to formally introduce him yesterday.
Plenty of players have found the baggage of a hefty transfer fee too heavy to handle in recent years, but Grealish is actually pleased with his own place in history and insists he’s ready to repay the club and Guardiola for that show of faith.
“No it don’t put no pressure on me whatsoever. I take that as a compliment. I actually like it, I think it is a good tag to have,” he said.
“I think when you see a club paying that much for a player it means they trust and value you highly and see so much potential there to work with. I just see it as a good thing. Now I just hope I can repay this whole football club by winning as many titles as possible and winning that trophy we all want.”
