Watch: Jack Grealish in heated altercation with Mexican icon Ochoa

The pair were separated by teammates amid tense scenes in Texas


Footage centering on a star member of Manchester City’s squad has piqued attentions on Thursday, on the back of the club’s latest outing.

The Sky Blues, of course, were back in action in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Amid ongoing efforts to ramp up preparations for the new season, Pep Guardiola’s troops faced off with Mexican giants Club America, in Houston, Texas.

And, when all was said and done, City emerged from proceedings triumphant, clinching a 2-1 victory courtesy of a double on the part of Kevin De Bruyne.

Whilst it was De Bruyne who stole the show when it came to the scoreline, though, as alluded to above, it is in fact another member of the Premier League champions’ ranks who has since taken centre stage online.

The player in question? Jack Grealish.

England international Grealish was utilised from the off versus Club America, featuring from his favoured spot on the left flank.

At one point in proceedings, though, the former Aston Villa talisman allowed his emotions to get the better of him, culminating in a heated physical exchange with America no.1 and Mexican legend Guillermo Ochoa.

After the pair became tangled in the penalty area, Grealish was left furious by Ochoa’s actions, in turn directing a heavy push into the veteran shot-stopper’s chest.

From here, the latter retaliated with a shove of his own, before the rest of America’s stars quickly arrived on the scene, culminating in the kind of heated exchange rarely seen in a friendly fixture.

Check out footage of the incident below:
