Manchester City midfielder Jack Grealish admits his move has been more difficult than he expected.
Grealish, who scored his third goal of the season during Tuesday’s 7-0 rout of Leeds United, has revealed how his manager Pep Guardiola continued to offer reassurance amid external question marks over his form.
“It has probably been a bit more difficult than I thought it was going to be,” Grealish admitted. “I thought I was going to come here and maybe double my goals and assists tally that I had at Villa.
“It hasn’t been the case, but I still feel like I have done OK. Hopefully now I am settled and starting to get used to club.
“‘He has kept reassuring me that I am playing well. He just kept saying to me ‘make sure you are hanging in there and the goals and the assists will come’. Obviously they did the other night and hopefully that is the first of many now.”
