Jack Grealish is a good footballer. For me, he's not a great player. He's a good player who has got a big move and is yet to do it at Man City.

Grealish secured a British-record £100 million move to City but has only netted five goals and provided just three assists, a performance which is considered a far cry from what was expected.

I see that two ways. You’re having too many touches if you’re the most fouled player. And the reason you’re having too many touches is because you’re not seeing the picture quickly enough.
I understand why people think he is better than he actually is – because he runs with the ball and gets you on the edge of your seat.

Souness thinks that the 27-year-old needs to be quick in his decision-making.

But he doesn’t deliver enough. He doesn’t see the right picture and he doesn’t deliver it quickly enough.
