Grealish not the only Premier League star at party flouting Government rules
Shamefaced Premier League ace Jack Grealish apologised for flouting Government “stay at home” rules to party with pals.
But Mirror Sport can reveal that two other Premier League stars were with Grealish on Saturday.
The Aston Villa captain released a video on Monday night admitting he had “stupidly” gone to a friend’s house during the lockdown.
It came after Grealish, 24, was photographed wearing a hoodie and mismatched slippers at the scene of a car accident in Dickens Heath, Solihull.
Police say they have arranged to speak to the driver of a damaged £80,000 Range Rover, pictured on double yellow lines, after they left the scene on foot.
They refused to say if Grealish, whose rumoured £50million summer move to Manchester United may now be in doubt, was the person behind the wheel.
He made his mea culpa after Harry Redknapp and Piers Morgan slammed him as “stupid”.
Grealish drove 10 miles from his home in Barnt Green, Worcs, to spend Saturday night at a flat owned by ex-teammate Ross McCormack.
Police were called after the Range Rover collided with at least three parked cars the next morning.
In his apology Grealish said: “I want to do a quick video message to say how deeply embarrassed I am about what happened.
“It’s a tough time for everyone at the moment, being locked indoors.
“I got a call off a friend asking to go to his and I stupidly agreed to do so.
“I don’t want anyone to make the same mistake. I urge everyone to stay at home. I know for a fact I’ll be doing that.”
The Mirror can reveal two other Premier League stars were with Grealish on Saturday. Both are household names and one is a current England player.
A source said the group made a “racket” as they drank and played computer games.
“There are a few players dreading their names coming out and their clubs finding out,” they said. “It’s not a good look to be out partying, especially when the advice is to stay indoors.
“They are lying low. They will face big fines if their managers find out.”
Premier League chiefs are fuming as it happened on the day they launched the #WeAreOneTeam campaign urging fans to stay home.
Former Tottenham manager Redknapp branded Grealish “stupid” adding: “He needs to be punished for sure.”
And GMB host Morgan blasted: “It doesn’t help when a role model, breaks the rules. Shame on you.”
