Jack Grealish will be ‘laughing’ after seeing his jibe about Miguel Almiron backfire. That is the view of BT Sport pundit Rio Ferdinand, who reckons the England international will not be ‘triggered’ after being outperformed by the Newcastle United star so far this season.
Almiron continued his fine streak in front of goal with what proved to be the winner in the 2-1 victory over Tottenham on Sunday. The winger is now just two strikes away from matching his best return in a black-and-white shirt.
Almiron’s remarkable improvement has come just five months on from being made a social media punchline by Grealish.
The viral video during Manchester City’s title celebrations saw Grealish joke that Riyad Mahrez had to be withdrawn during the decisive final-day win over Aston Villa for ‘playing like Almiron’.
Comments on almiron
Grealish’s comments have often been raised by pundits during their assessments of Almiron’s start to the season.
It is a comment which has quickly come back to haunt the £100 million man, with football fans regularly reminding him of the comparison on social media after every Almiron goal.
The 28-year-old has scored six times in the Premier League already, including a goal against City in the thrilling 3-3 draw in August.
However, he got a little carried away with his jokes that ended up coming at the expense of Almiron.
Bernardo Silva asked him on camera about what was the secret behind their final day comeback against Aston Villa to win the title.
He said: ”There were two secrets… one, Riyad [Mahrez], take him off the pitch, as soon as possible. He played like [Newcastle star Miguel] Almiron.
“For me, he’s given me everything from day one, very committed to the team. He’s a real team player and he’s getting the recognition that he deserves.
“I don’t think I’ve noticed a difference in his character. He’s been very consistent – that’s a strength – he’s been very happy every day, very pleased to be part of the team, has very close friends within the squad.
