Grealish Apologizes for Violating Lockdown


Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish entered the news at the end of March when his Range Rover smashed into parking cars on Birmingham streets when visiting a friend’s home.

Grealish now says he regrets breaching lockout protocols for coronavirus but he also emphasizes that he is “still human and we are all making mistakes.”

During an interview with The Guardian, the Villa talisman opened up about his profound mistake in judgement, conceding that he struggled to serve his responsibilities as a role model for the next generation.

“I immediately realized I needed to come out and apologise for what I wanted to do; I didn’t want to hide behind a statement from the club.” Grealish said. “I’m old enough and mature enough to understand I’d gone wrong. I know I’m a footballer but I’m also a human being so we’re all making mistakes so I realized I made an error straight away.”

“I’m also a role model for many people out there, particularly young children who may look up to me,” he further said. “That’s how I’m going to behave in a responsible way because since then I’ve been trying to hold my head down, work hard to do as much charity work as possible.”
