Guardiola: Grealish will be 'so important' for City

Pep Guardiola said that summer signing Jack Grealish will be ‘so important’ for City in the wake of his Premier League debut for the Club.

Though we slipped to a frustrating opening day 1-0 defeat at Tottenham, England international Grealish provided numerous positive signs of what he can bring to the squad with his attacking drive and desire evident from the first whistle.

“Jack has personality - it was an incredible debut,” the City manager asserted.

“He will be so important for us and I congratulated him for his personality to try and try until the end.

"(He showed) personality, influence. (There were) Three or four fouls in the first minutes. He is so dangerous close to the box.”

The City manager also confirmed that the Club were awaiting a medical update on Ilkay Gundogan after the midfielder went down in pain holding his shoulder after a late challenge.

“(There was) Something in his shoulder. We will see what happens tomorrow but something happened,” Guardiola confirmed.
