Former Manchester United striker, Michael Owen, has identified Manchester City’s Jack Grealish as the most fouled player in the Premier League.
Owen said this following Manchester City’s Champions League 4-1 win over Club Brugge on Wednesday night.
The former Liverpool star said that he is a huge fan of Grealish but worries the £100million signing does not suit Pep Guardiola’s side’s play style.
“I am a huge fan of Jack Grealish, full stop. I love him,” Owen told BT Sport.
“I just don’t think he necessarily suits perfectly to Manchester City. I see Grealish as somebody, certainly at Villa, where he would take the ball from deep and be strong and he’s confident and he will run 40/50 yards and earn a free-kick after being tugged back.
“He is the most fouled player in the Premier League by a mile. But I don’t think Man City want free kicks. When Man City get a free kick in the final third, they just put the ball down and start again.
“Grealish takes a touch all the time. He slows it down and commits players. Two or three come around him and he is fantastic, but I don’t think he fits like a glove. He is going to score goals, but he doesn’t fit like a glove.”
