Roy Keane backs Grealish to improve after struggling debut season at Man City

Jack Grealish hopes to improve after his debut season.

The former Aston Villa forward has managed only three goals and three assists in the 22 games.

He has struggled to hit the ground running in his debut season for the Cityzens after he makes the most expensive British player of all-time.

Former Villa assistant Roy Keane believes it’s still to early to judge the 26-year-old attacker.

“We’ll try and give Jack the benefit of the doubt,” Keane said. “We were talking about his age earlier, he’s what 26 – 27, now.

“We’re thinking maybe he should have gone to City and maybe adapted a bit quicker but sometimes it can be difficult.

“He’s gone in and not really had the run of games, he had one or two injuries earlier in the season, he would have been disappointed even in the last game being left out against his old club Aston Villa but they got over the line.

“We’ve seen him being left out of big games for City and Gareth [Southgate] has done the same with England.

“The penny has to drop with Jack, if you want to be a real top player you’ve got to step up to the plate a bit more and the manager’s got to have a bit of trust with him.”
