Souness has new dig at Man City midfielder Grealish: Live with it. Deal with it

Liverpool legend Graeme Souness says Manchester City midfielder Jack Grealish needs to learn to handle scrutiny.

Souness and Grealish have traded barbs in the media this week.

And the Scot wrote for the Daily Mail: "There are very obvious upsides that come along with a big move in football. A lifestyle beyond your wildest dreams. Glamour you could never imagine, playing for a huge club.

"The downsides, if you want to call them that, are the pressure and the scrutiny and the need to be bang at it — all of the time.

"These are not downsides at all if you're a proper player because you know the deal and what people say won't impact on you. But if you transfer for a huge fee like that, there's an expectation. To Grealish, I would say: 'Live with it. Deal with it.'"
