‘I can’t have Bukayo saying that…’: Grealish has words with Arsenal star whilst on England duty

Jack Grealish and Bukayo Saka are currently on international duty with England.

England’s Euro 2024 qualifying campaign gets underway later this week.

The Three Lions have a fairly favourable group, with Italy their only real test.

Roberto Mancini’s side, of course, beat England in the final of Euro 2020 but have dropped off somewhat since then, failing to qualify for the World Cup.

England kick off their European campaign on Friday vs Italy before taking on Ukraine on Sunday.

Ahead of said games, Jack Grealish has revealed why he had to have a word with Bukayo Saka after the England players met up for the latest camp:

“I’m playing for City on the wing, he’s playing for Arsenal on the wing and we’re both going for the Premier League.

“He’s a great lad, Bukayo. In the game the other week, I went past someone and then me and him went shoulder to shoulder.

“I thought, ‘He [the referee] has got to give it as a foul’, because I can’t have Bukayo saying that he bodied me. I pulled him up on that this morning and he said it was never a foul!”
