Former Aston Villa striker Collymore claims Grealish taking his advice

Former Aston Villa striker Stan Collymore claims Jack Grealish is taking his advice.

Collymore has warned Jack Grealish that Manchester United won't be interested in signing him if he continues to make mistakes off the field.

He said, "I sent him a long email when he went to a party. I told him he needs to make amends. I said to him 'you've got good people around you, you've let them down but now it's time to get back on track'.

“Pretty much as a prescription, he did everything that I requested he did. He made a big donation to a local hospital and he was forgiven.

"If you look at Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, who all might be looking at you, if he keeps making these kinds of mistakes, they just won't take him.

“A big conversation - make sure the football family, doctors, clubs, keep their phone lines open because players are humans like we all are."
