‘I’m a big confidence player’ – Jack Grealish reveals how Pep Guardiola made him feel loved at Man City

Grealish had a difficult start to life at Manchester City after joining the club for £100 million in the summer of 2021. It was only after coming back from the 2022 Qatar World Cup, that Pep Guardiola started using Grealish regularly in matches and he eventually went on to play a crucial role in the club's treble win.

The Engand international has now revealed that Guardiola made him feel "loved" at the club last season by regularly playing him in important matches which boosted his confidence massively.

Speaking on Manchester City's podcast, Grealish said, "I'm a big confidence player, I want to feel loved. I came back from the World Cup and my first game was against Leeds and I should have scored at least two goals in the first half and at half-time, I was dwelling on that. But in the second half, I made two assists for Erling. A week later, I was on the bench at Chelsea, as me and Riyad [Mahrez] came on at the same time and I got another assist for his goal. After that, I just seemed to get some more goal involvement.
