Jack Grealish banished to Under-21 squad for nightclub antics
Aston Villa manager Remi Garde has reportedly banished youngster Jack Grealish to the club’s Under-21 team as punishment for his recent nightclub antics.
The 20-year-old was seen partying at a Manchester club just hours after his side were hammered 4-0 by Everton. Villa are unlikely to fine Grealish over the incident but his place in the squad for this weekend’s meeting with Watford is under threat, according to The Telegraph.
The Villa academy product has courted controversy before, with the club fining him last summer when photographs of him apparently passed out in the street while on holiday in Tenerife surfaced.
