Sore head yet Jack? Man City star continues Treble bender with parade

Jack’s three-day treble bender! Shirtless and bleary-eyed Grealish leads his triumphant Man City team-mates as they set off on parade through Manchester – after dashing to Ibiza to keep the party going

Manchester City are celebrating their historic treble triumph tonight in front of tens of thousands of fans – but were delayed by bad weather. 

Following their 1-0 win against Inter Milan in the Champions League final on Saturday, the City stars have taken to the streets of Manchester in an open-top bus parade.

Fans heading into the city centre for the parade have been delayed because of lightning storms.

Jack Grealish will certainly be feeling worse for wear after he was spotted staying out until sunrise for two nights running in an almighty bender. 

The City winger kicked off festivities after Saturday’s Champions League victory over Inter Milan by leading the chants in the dressing room before leaving the stadium with a Heineken in hand along with a speaker blaring out Fleetwood Mac.

After gulping down drinks during a big night out in Istanbul, the 27-year-old emerged on Sunday morning still wearing his City kit.

After the team headed back to Manchester, he was then jetted off to Ibiza with several other City stars including striker Erling Haaland – who’s described him as his ‘best friend in football’. 

Grealish gave a brief interview to BT Sport after Saturday’s win, when the star was so emotional he broke down in tears

But after that it was full steam ahead, with Grealish singing along to Fleetwood Mac as the players enjoyed several drinks and danced with the trophy. 

The winger also led the chants for matchwinner Rodri as he could barely hide his delight, before providing an entertaining spectacle for journalists in the mixed zone.

With a boombox in one hand and a can of Heineken in the other, Grealish – wearing his cap backwards – made his way towards City’s bus at almost half-past two on Sunday morning.

He led City’s players out and even mocked Kevin De Bruyne as he sauntered past loudly playing the same Fleetwood Mac song and this was only the start.

City went on to party at the team hotel, JW Marriott, which overlooked the Marmara Sea.

It was tucked away a bit from the hustle of an enchanting city full of life, and certainly from the area near Taksim Square where their supporters drunk the place dry for three days.

Their heroes managed similar in a matter of hours, or seemed to do so with the number of Grey Goose vodka and champagne bottles knocking around.

The hotel opened up downstairs for City, who had brought over the Premier League and FA Cup trophies for company.

Still in full kit, Grealish was leading chants at 5am – respectfully asking ‘have you ever won a Treble?’ with the answer not so polite – on a perch with Haaland, Kyle Walker and John Stones.

Grealish – two drinks in hand – was also seen rapping over thumping disco music as the party continued well into Sunday before City’s flight home.

Grealish then joined his teammates for more Champions League celebrations on Sunday morning, although he was still wearing his kit from the night before.

While it’s unclear whether the England midfielder had slept, he certainly enjoyed himself and was joined by Kyle Walker, Erling Haaland, John Stones and Kalvin Phillips.

Phillips was holding the microphone while belting out John Stones’ famous ‘Johnny Stones’ chant, with the four other players joining in.

Grealish was then seen with his head poking out of a window on the roof of the team bus as fans clapped and cheered as they left.

He was determined to continue the party ahead of the flight home.

The delirium felt among City players and staff only continued on the journey home as players posed for pictures with the trophy.

Grealish even made use of the plane’s intercom en route back from Turkey, much to his teammates’ amusement.

Then, as City arrived back at Manchester airport on Sunday afternoon and posed on the steps of their club-encrusted Etihad plane, the full state of Grealish’s celebrations could be seen far-and-wide.

In a video on social media, the England star was stumbling his way towards the terminal building, looking completely out of it.

One fan even joked: ‘Grealish doesn’t have a clue what planet he’s on.’

After pipping Arsenal to win the Premier League title and beating their fierce rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley, City’s Champions League triumph wrapped up the treble.

It means they have now equalled their neighbour’s famous achievement in 1999 and become just the second English team to win the treble.
