Grealish was born in Birmingham, West Midlands and raised in nearby Solihull.
He attended Our Lady of Compassion Roman Catholic Primary School and St Peter’s Roman Catholic Secondary School in Solihull.
Grealish is of Irish descent, through his maternal grandfather from County Dublin, his paternal grandfather from Gort, County Galway, and his paternal grandmother from Sneem, County Kerry.
Influenced by his Irish heritage, Grealish played Gaelic football for John Mitchel’s Hurling and Camogie Club of Warwickshire GAA between the ages of 10 and 14.
He competed against former Aston Villa and current Manchester United defender Aoife Mannion, a school classmate of his, at Gaelic football.
The Manchester City and England international, 27, kept his same 84 rating he was given last year for the new edition of EA’s game – which came out earlier this week.
That was despite a poor first season at Man City in which he managed just six goals and four assisting in 39 appearances.
However, that is where EA’s generosity ends when it comes to Grealish.
The former Aston Villa man’s character on the game has been criticised by fans as it looks almost nothing like him.
And when a picture of it was posted on Twitter, fans could not help but jokingly slam it.
Jack grealish Calves
The England midfielder has a notable look on the pitch and the 26-year-old has lifted the lid on his style.
On those famous jack grealish calves he claimed it is all genetics saying to the Daily Mail: “I actually don’t do anything. It’s just something that runs in the family.
“My grandad always had big calves when he used to play football.
“But I don’t do any calf exercises or calf routines in the gym or anything. Honestly, it’s just something that I’ve had since I was young.”
And on those well-known low socks Grealish shared that superstition is the reason behind it.
“In training I couldn’t get them over my calves because the socks were so small.
“So I started wearing them below my calves in training — and that season I ended up playing really well.
“So then I started wearing my socks below my calves in games. It was just something that stuck because I’d had such a good season.”
Jack grealish Brother
Jack grealish has paid a touching tribute to his baby brother on the anniversary of his untimely passing.
The Manchester City and England star posted a picture of his brother Keelan’s gravestone on Saturday to mark the 22nd anniversary of his death.
Keelan was just nine months old when he passed away from cot death when Jack was four.
Jack, 26, has repeatedly honoured his brother’s memory during his career.
When he scored his first senior goal while on loan at Notts County in the 2013/14 season, he dedicated it to Keelan.
And in November 2018 while playing for Aston Villa, he dedicated his goal in a 4-2 victory to his sibling.
He said: “I had tears in my eyes. I was crying because all my family were here and it’s a moment I dreamed of as a fan.
“I got emotional after scoring because of my little brother who passed away and i dedicated the goal to him.”
Jack Grealish is the wonderboy of British football. He helped carry England to the final of the Euros at Wembley last summer (the strongest England team performance in living memory), and he has the finest boyband curtains we’ve seen on any pitch since David Beckham hung up his Adidas Predators.
No wonder he’s been tapped by Gucci to become one of the brand’s latest global ambassadors, following in the footsteps of Harry Styles (who just launched his first-ever collection with the brand), Jared Leto and Miley Cyrus.
It was rumoured earlier this year that the Man City and England midfielder had signed to the Italian superbrand, but since there’s been little mention of the partnership besides a slight nod to it in an interview with The Face earlier this year, nor has Gucci dropped any campaign images that feature the cheeky footballer. That being said, the 26-year-old has already been flexing his ambassador chops.
Notable Gucci pieces already seen on the Birmingham-born sportsman include the bright blue monogrammed shorts he wore to Leeds Festival last summer and the black parka with interlocking Gs running down the arms that he sometimes wears in the stands of Man City’s Etihad Stadium.
Papped in Manchester ahead of the new season kicking off this weekend, Grealish sported a white tee, black skinny-fit sweatpants and Nike sneakers. He carried a black vintage-style duffle bag – probably not the sort of thing you and I can afford to carry our sweaty gym kits around in – in a black variation of Gucci’s iconic GG supreme canvas.
