Fans question why Manchester City star has two iPhones



| Last Updated:


Manchester City forward Jack Grealish has been subject to attention on social media after eagle-eyed supporters noticed that the Englishman carries two iPhones.

The 28-year-old was forced off midway through the first-half against FC Copenhagen in the UEFA Champions League last-16 first-leg on Tuesday evening, with Grealish making a first Manchester City start since early January.

Grealish suffered a suspected muscular injury and was replaced by Jeremy Doku, with Pep Guardiola sweating on the fitness of the forward ahead of a number of crucial games across three competitions.

The England international has become integral to Manchester City in key matches over the past 18 months, and the Sky Blues are facing the prospect of potentially being without Grealish for matches against Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool.

Grealish was one of three fresh injury concerns for City on Tuesday evening, with Bernardo Silva suffering an ankle injury and Josko Gvardiol missing the fixture due to a ligament problem.

Manchester City were victorious at the Parken Stadium, winning 3-1, courtesy of late goals from Silva and Phil Foden at the end of each half.

Kevin De Bruyne had initially given the Blues the lead within the opening 10 minutes, however his strike was cancelled out by Magnus Mattsson’s goal.

The action on-field wasn’t the only thing to catch the attention of some supporters, with a pre-match image of Grealish arriving at the Parken sparking questions online.

The 28-year-old was pictured entering the FC Copenhagen ground holding two Apple iPhones, one in a blue case and another in a pink case, drawing debate on social media.

Manchester City players had been gifted an iPhone by De Bruyne earlier this season to commemorate the club’s treble success.

The Belgian midfielder gifted all 26 members of the squad a bespoke iPhone 14, specially commissioned by iDesign Gold, worth £5,000 each.

The phones, worth £130,000 in total, had the Manchester City logo and player name engraved.
