Jack Grealish tells public ‘stay indoors’

Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish could be in trouble once again.

Grealish stands accused of ignoring his own advice with regards to isolation during Covid-19.

A couple of days ago, Grealish posted a video message on social media encouraging all of his followers to heed the government’s instructions to stay inside during the current coronavirus pandemic.

In his video, the 24-year-old said it was imperative to stay at home to “save lives”.

The Villa star also said it was only acceptable to go outside to “buy food, buy medicine or exercise”.

Grealish told his audience that these instructions are “urgent” to help protect the NHS.

Subsequently, pictures have appeared on social media revealing that Grealish has been involved in a car crash.

The Guardian have revealed the following about Grealish’s accident:

An investigation has been launched after pictures of the Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish surfaced online following an incident in which a Range Rover crashed into parked cars.

West Midlands police said they were called to the Dickens Heath area of Solihull on Sunday just before 10am where the two parked cars suffered minor damage. The force said the driver left his details with a member of the public before leaving on foot.

Sensationally, the Daily Mail reported that the police are were on the “hunt” for Grealish.

The Mail seemed to suggest that Grealish was on the run from law enforcement.

How did Grealish’s 4 am accident happen?

Specific details of the accident have been published by the Sun.

Apparently Grealish had his car crash at 4 am.

Moreover, an image has surfaced on social media showing Grealish on the pavement after the crash.

That picture was reportedly taken at 8 am on Sunday morning.

The Sun also published quotes from a “neighbour” who supposedly witnessed the event. They said:

The party had been going on all night. It was unbearable. The noise had only stopped a short while when, just after 8am, there were a series of almighty collisions which reverberated through the flats.

Outside, Jack Grealish was stood next to his car rowing with a security guard. It was strange to see an England ace looking so unkempt and dishevelled. He looked unsteady and confused.

There was an almighty row because Jack didn’t want to wait around but people wanted answers from him.

Grealish reportedly said he’d pay for the damage caused by the car accident.


So what’s going to happen to Grealish?

The Times report that Grealish will have to explain his actions to his club:

Aston Villa will today seek to talk to Jack Grealish after claims that the midfielder was involved in a minor car accident hours after appearing in a video advising fans to stay at home during the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s unclear if Grealish will be punished by his club.
