‘Let’s do this!! As long as I can bring Pogba as a +1: Jack Grealish AGREES with a night out with Sportsmail’s Graeme Souness … but cheekily suggests Man United’s flop comes along too, as both players have felt the Scot’s wrath
- Manchester City’s Jack Grealish has agreed to a drink with Graeme Souness
- The England star wants ex-Man United player Paul Pogba as his plus
- Both Grealish and Pogba have been criticized by the pundit lately
- Souness, 69, said the best players have to learn to embrace the negativity
Jack Grealish has given the green light to Graeme Souness after being invited to a night out by the former Liverpool captain – but only if he can bring Paul Pogba with him.
Souness has taken aim at Grealish several times over the past few weeks and has insisted on his latest sports mail Column that the Man City winger should learn to live with negative comments.
When discussing the criticism talkSPORT, The 69-year-old jokingly said: “I’d love to spend a night with Jack! I’m not sure I could stay with him but I would enjoy a night with him.
Graeme Souness (R) was jokingly taken to his drink offer to Jack Grealish (L).
It wasn’t long before Grealish accepted Souness’ invitation, but he couldn’t resist poking fun at his biggest critic by urging Pogba – who has also been scrutinized frequently by Souness in the past – to accept her to accompany.
Along with two laughing emojis, the England international responded to talkSPORT’s clip on Twitter, saying: “Let’s do it! As long as I can bring Pogba as a +1.
It follows an ongoing row between the two, with Souness claiming Grealish hasn’t improved since his £100million move from Aston Villa last summer.
The 27-year-old scored his first goal of the season against Wolves last weekend after scoring just three league goals in his first season with the Citizens.

Souness had said he was “not a quick learner”, leading the player to reply: “I don’t know what his problem is with me. He’s always saying things about me.
“I try not to read a lot of it. It’s difficult when he’s at Sky Sports and it’s all over the training ground at times. He was obviously a great player and won a lot, but I don’t know what he’s saying about me or what his problem is.”
Souness, who has spent five decades in football, insists he has no ‘vendetta’ against Grealish or Pogba, whom he has also criticized during his time at Manchester United.
Of the now-Juventus star, he said: “When I tried Paul Pogba it was because it was Man United and I think I was the first to call Pogba an average player in our league. I think I was 100 percent validated at the end of the day.”
France midfielder Pogba, 29, currently plays for Serie A club Juve after his contract at Old Trafford expired in the summer.
Grealish is currently in England duty before returning to potentially take part in the Manchester derby on October 2.
Grealish’s next game for City is the Manchester derby – the first since Pogba joined Juventus
