Liverpool icon Jamie Redknapp caught Jack Grealish looking ‘unhappy’ after the player was subbed off with just over 20 minutes remaining as Manchester City defeated Watford 3-1 on Saturday evening. Grealish played in a false nine role at Vicarage Road and Redknapp believes the position is ‘not ideal’ for the England international.
“I looked at his face when he came off and [he] looked unhappy,” admitted Redknapp on Sky Sports. “Maybe [he was] thinking there are goals in this for me.
“With that role, he might think it’s not ideal.”
Grealish missed a hatful of chances in the game, with the former Aston Villa man proving far from prolific in a City shirt.
The 26-year-old has found the back of the net just twice since making the move from the west Midlands.
And the attacker was clearly frustrated with his failure to get his name on the scoresheet at Vicarage Road.
