(Reuters) – Jack Grealish is much harder to adapt to life in Manchester City as England’s most expensive players are preparing to play against former club Aston Villa. He said he felt.

Grealish joined the city from Villa in August and set a league record of £ 100m ($ 133.23 million), but is relatively slow in his new club with two goals and three assists in 15 appearances. I got off to a good start.

“I found it much harder to adapt to another manager or teammate than I expected,” Grealish told The Daily Telegraph 11/30 / jack-grealish-exclusive-harder-expected-city-nice-100m-Players prior to traveling to the City’s Premier League villas.

“I can’t say I had a hard time, but I wasn’t used to it at first. I didn’t have any assists or goals last season, but no one doubts me.”

The England national team also dismissed concerns about the pressure to endure his price tag, saying he “couldn’t care too much about it.”

Manager Pep Guardiola has helped and improved Grealish by saying that the midfielder has the technical skills to succeed in the city.

“All new players are always struggling, but what he sees and what he has to do is very easy for him with the quality he has,” Guardiola said.

“Maybe (his late start) because he respects his peers because it’s a new environment. It’s normal, it’s a process. He needs time.”

Manchester City are second in the league, one point below top Chelsea. Villa has reached up to 13th place after winning the last two games under new coach Steven Gerrard.
