​Grealish admits early days at Man City 'so difficult'

England star Jack Grealish admits that he felt his early days at Manchester City were very difficult last season.

The attacker, who can play on the wings or in a central attacking midfield role, was a bit part player for City last term.

Grealish struggled to adapt to his teammates and the style of play championed by manager Pep Guardiola.

However, he now has the left-wing spot as his own, after the departure of Raheem Sterling to Chelsea.

He said, per a new documentary by City Studios called 'Together: Champions Again': "My first day of training, the England lads weren't back.

"The only two people I knew really were Gabriel Jesus and Bernardo as I'd had an argument on the pitch with them at Villa the year before.

"So I had to walk up to them and I was like 'you alright, like'.

"Those first few weeks, coming into this whole new environment, new staff, everything about it. Coming up to live in Manchester.

"Walking into this new building and not knowing anyone. Then it's just adapting to the manager here, the way the lads are here.

"It was so difficult, honestly."

He added: "It's a blur now, looking back.

"I'd never even signed for a club before, I'd been at Villa my whole life, I didn't know what to expect.

"I didn't even know what you do in a medical. I just wasn't clued up with stuff like this as I'd never done it."
