There was only one way for Jack Grealish to celebrate winning his first Premier League title – fly to Ibiza and party with Wayne Lineker at Ocean Beach.
The Man City star let his now-famous hair down the minute the final whistle sounded at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, with his celebrations continuing throughout this week – and who can blame him?
He flew to Ibiza, where he met Lineker [brother of Match of the Day presenter, Gary]who posted a photo of the two on Instagram, with the caption “Here he is…”
It came just a day after the club’s title celebrations and open top bus tour on Monday, where Grealish was seen drinking beers and what appeared to be vodka cokes .
Every time he was handed the microphone, he left the crowd in stitches, notably when he promised to buy jägerbombs from anyone who met him at Manchester restaurant Albatross & Arnold.
He then joked that Pep Guardiola only signed him because he got the better of Kyle Walker when he played for Aston Villa last season, which made his boss hysterical.
Bernando Silva and Grealish were then seen chatting during the celebrations, leading the England international to compare Riyad Mahrez’s poor performance to Newcastle man Miguel Almiron.
He said, “Riyadh, get him out of the field, as soon as possible. He played like Almiron.

However, talkSPORT’s Simon Jordan wasn’t the happiest with Grealish’s demeanor, especially his commentary on Almiron.
He went on to lament the former Aston Villa man’s behaviour, calling the midfielder a ‘cretin’ and his comments as ‘arrogant’ and ‘lacking in conscience’.
“The bottom line is that it puts Jack Grealish back where he belonged – in dumb territory – engaging his mouth before engaging his brain,” White and Jordan’s host told talkSPORT.
“There’s no problem with him joking with his teammates, that’s fine. If someone said he was taking the mickey away from Riyad Mahrez, you would say it was a joke, they have this report.
“But if you take him out of another area and pick another player and single him out and ridicule him because you think you’re capable of doing that, where is that going to end?
“Someone somewhere is going to say, ‘By the way, who are you?’ What gives you the right to make this comparison? Why would you want to do it? Where does your arrogance end and your intelligence begin?
“I’m sure he meant it ironically, but why pick on any player in particular?
“Obviously deep down he thinks that player probably isn’t good, and that’s his prerogative, but why does he need to do that to that particular player when Man City are talking about his success ?
“Why does he think he’s on a platform where he can despise this player?
“Jack Grealish is a talented player, he is far from a £100m player.
“It’s incredibly fortuitous to play for a club like Man City that helped them win a Premier League, because I don’t think their contribution brought Man City to that Premier League title.
“I think he’s a bit of a partial player, so he would have been better served by saying, ‘Get me off the pitch’ more.
“It’s a lack of awareness.”
