Stories of Jack Grealish partying in Las Vegas are actually doing him a favor, believes former England man Jack Wilshere.
The Manchester City and England star’s antics once again grabbed the headlines with Grealish attending a drunken pool party. Liverpool defender Andy Robertson was also present.
Britain’s most expensive footballer is currently enjoying a break with friends ahead of the new season, with stories of his excursions sparking massive debate.
And Wilshere, who was caught smoking a cigarette while vacationing in Vegas in 2014, believes all talk of Grealish is actually benefiting the 26-year-old.
“I think that probably does Jack Grealish a favour. As far as him having this brand of bad boy about him,” Wilshere said on Drivetime.
“Everyone is interested in their life. When there are stories like that, it’s probably doing them a favor.
talkSPORT’s Danny Murphy previously claimed Grealish needed to “be better” after the footage of him partying in the United States was released, adding that the player should keep his head down and “stay out of the line of fire”.
Murphy said: “He made a rod for his own back, Jack.

“He became a target because he put himself in situations that you shouldn’t put yourself in. And once you’ve had a few offenses and a few issues that have been well documented, then you have to put your head down. down and stay out of the line of fire.
“And there are ways and means to do it. Even the end-of-season stuff, when you’ve just won the league and you look like you’ve gotten more than everyone else, you start talking some nonsense.
Grealish has failed to cement a place alongside Pep Guardiola since his £100m move to the Etihad Stadium from boyhood club Aston Villa.
Despite picking up a Premier League medal, the Birmingham-born attacking midfielder is hoping to kick off next season and prove his critics wrong.
