Jack Grealish Names World Record Breaker As His Toughest-Ever Opponent

Jack Grealish has revealed the toughest football player he ever played with during his football career as an Aston Villa and Manchester City player. The Englishman described Lionel Messi as the most difficult opponent he ever came across as a player.

The Argentine at 36 years was named the best player in the world as he won his eight Ballon d’Or award amidst a glorious football career and stellar goal-scoring record. In the last decade, Messi has been described as the best player ever seen in modern football, therefore, Jack Grealish’s choice was well-understood.

During a recent interaction with club media, Grealish was queried to name the best player he has come across during his time for Aston Villa and Manchester City. He replied: “The best player I have played against is Leo Messi.”

The Argentine won at least 44 major trophies while playing for Barcelona, PSG, and his present club Inter Miami. He lifted 10 La Liga titles, four UEFA Champions League crowns, one FIFA World Cup, and one Copa America trophy as well.

Jack Grealish on the other hand had an impressive 2023, helping Pep Guardiola’s side to win five trophies, including the UEFA Champions League for the first time in the history of Manchester City.

This season, the Englishman continues to struggle with injury. He was not available for selection during their last Premier League match against Newcastle United.

He was ill for “five or six days” ahead of Newcastle, and despite appearing for training on Friday, he could not finish the session, according to Pep Guardiola.

“He made an incredible effort to come but could not finish the training session.”
