“Creeping into your mind” – Jack Grealish reveals reason why he has deleted Twitter and doesn’t use social media platform



| Last Updated:


Manchester City forward Jack Grealish has revealed exactly why he no longer uses social media platform Twitter, now known as X in the wider domain.

Grealish has endured a relatively challenging campaign off the back of the historic Treble-winning season alongside his Manchester City teammates in 2022/23, battling a mix of fitness and form problems.

Having overcome back-to-back groin problems sustained in action for Manchester City earlier this year, Jack Grealish is hoping to maintain a run of availability under Pep Guardiola, and contribute to a potential fourth successive Premier League title success.

However, the campaign has already seen plenty of criticism sent in the direction of Jack Grealish on social media for his performances, with the Manchester City forward revealing what he has done to combat such issues.

Speaking during a new interview with Sky Sports, Jack Grealish has admitted that “so much stuff” is wrote on social media platforms like X, formerly known as Twitter, that he was forced into not using the application.

“In this day and age, you can have a bad game and it can be all over social media or the newspapers,” Grealish said. “You look at the top players over the years, Messi, Ronaldo, that is one thing they had more than anyone else in the world.

“I’ve had times where I’ve been going through a difficult patch, and I play with players now at (Manchester) City and for England that have had a lot of stick over the years and I know they don’t read anything anymore.”

He continued, “Even now I don’t have Twitter because you see so much stuff on there you don’t need to see written about yourself. When you see or hear a lot of it, it can start creeping into your mind.”

Jack Grealish and Manchester City have just three matches remaining in the Premier League this season, with back-to-back trips to London awaiting the club against Fulham and Tottenham in a matter of days.

The domestic season for Pep Guardiola and his players will come to a close at the end of May, with the FA Cup final against Manchester United coming on the weekend after the top-flight final day against West Ham.
