Collymore warned Jack Grealish to dodge frightening off Manchester United and Chelsea with the “issues” he’s made off the field.
Infringing the lockdown rule during the coronavirus eruption Grealish made unpleasant news – forcing him to deliver a formal apology.
Former Villa and Liverpool striker Stan Collymore commented on this.
“As an older man today, looking at any of these young kids, older players will today be willing to pick up the phone and tell ‘think about it – have a word about that’,” Collymore told SiriusXM.
“As for Jack Grealish, I did that. When he went to the party, I sent him a long mail. I informed him he had to make amends.”
“I told him: ’You have nice people around you, you’ve let them down, but now it’s time to get back on track.’”
“Like a prescription, he did what I suggested. He made a large contribution to a local hospital and he was forgiven.”
“If you look at Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, who all might be looking at you, if he keeps making these kinds of mistakes, they just won’t take him.”
“A major conversation-make sure the families, the doctors, the teams, hold their telephone lines accessible as the players are human as we all.”
