JACK GREALISH joked with Bernardo Silva about the key to Manchester City beating Aston Villa and sealing the Premier League title.
City celebrated their title victory in an open-top bus parade through Manchester on Monday.
Jack Grealish told Bernardo Silva that his substitution was key to Manchester City’s win
Silva hit back saying City were victorious because Grealish did not play at all
Grealish found the midfielder’s retort hilarious
But the England star was also a little embarrassed and hid his face in his hands
Grealish poked fun at the Portuguese earlier in the day alongside John Stones and Kyle Walker
And an overexcited Grealish got a little carried away as he poked fun at Bernardo Silva alongside Kyle Walker and John Stones.
The England star, 25, said: “It’s been brilliant to win my first title, I want to thank everyone.
“But the main person I want to thank is Bernardo Silva for coming off in the 70th minute, because he was miles off it yesterday.”
Silva was replaced by Ilkay Gundogan with City trailing 2-0 and the German scored twice to help his side turn things around.
Later Silva approached Grealish, camera in hand, to ask him the secret behind City’s stunning comeback against Steven Gerrard’s side.
With a huge smile on his face the winger did not hesitate before saying: “There were two secrets…number one, Riyad (Mahrez), take him off the pitch, as soon as possible. He played like (Miguel) Almiron yesterday.
“Number two, (pointing at Silva) he’s been so good this season, get him off the pitch.”
The Portuguese then came up with a third secret, adding: “Number three…keep Jack Grealish on the f**king bench.”
Grealish then burst out laughing and put his head in his hands – possibly because he did in fact remain on the bench throughout.
Silva also had a huge smile across his face with the pair enjoying the banter amid the mass celebrations.
