Reason why Jack Grealish waited to confront Oriol Romeu in tunnel revealed
Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl admitted that the £100m man had a bone to pick with his midfielder after their 1-1 draw on Saturday.The pair had an on-field spat during the match at St Mary’s, which saw Manchester City’s 12-match winning streak come to an end.Kyle Walker-Peters had put the home side ahead in the opening exchanges of the match before Aymeric Laporte equalised from a Kevin de Bruyne free-kick.Pep Guardiola’s men were threatening to pull away from the herd in the Premier League table but this has somewhat brought them back down to earth.While the size of catching City still looks unlikely, Liverpool have two games in hand and could cut their lead at the top to six points.During the match, Romeu was a constant thorn in Grealish’s side and the Mirror have revealed that the Spaniard was pinching and twisting the winger’s skin throughout the outing.There was another incident when the England international was floored by Jan Bednarak while Romeu leaned into Grealish and appeared to shout in his face.It led to a scuffle when the 26-year-old got to his feet to push the former Chelsea star with both sets of teams getting involved.Who's your money on - Jack Grealish on Oriol Romeu? Comment belowHasenhuttl revealed that the former Aston Villa star waited for Romeu in the tunnel after the match to exchange words.He said: “They had a conversation and everything is good.”Grealish arrived at the Etihad in the summer for a British record £100m and has two goals and two assists in 16 Premier League appearances.At full-time, Guardiola claimed that it was the forward’s best match in a sky-blue shirt after playing him as a striker.Want to be on the ball with all of the latest football news?Well then sign up for the
