Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has opened up on breaking lockdown rules during the coronavirus crisis.
The 25-year-old was forced to apologise publicly after he broke the rules by attending a party at former team-mate Ross McCormack's flat.
"I knew straight away that I had to come out and apologise myself, which I wanted to do - I didn't want to hide behind a club statement," Grealish said.
'I know I am a footballer but I'm still human and we all make mistakes and straight away I knew I'd made a mistake.
"I'm also a role model as well to a lot of people out there, especially young children who might look up to me."
