After a thorough assessment by England’s medical staff, it’s officially confirmed that Jack Grealish will not be part of the national team. It is for their September fixtures. This decision is likely a precautionary measure to provide Grealish with the necessary time to rest. It is imperative to provide rest for Grealish considering the type of injury he has.
City closely monitoring Grealish for future plans
Manchester City, eager to have Jack Grealish back in top form, will be monitoring his progress closely as they prepare to resume Premier League action against West Ham on September 16. They will commence their Champions League campaign on September 19 against Red Star Belgrade, immediately following this match.
Grealish’s absence compounds City’s growing list of injury concerns. In addition to his situation, John Stones is also missing international duty due to injury, although Pep Guardiola had expressed optimism about Stones’ potential return after the international break. However, the club continues to face the challenge of Kevin De Bruyne’s long-term injury absence.
