Man City star Jack Grealish leaves local school kids stunned with Christmas present prank


Exclusive: Manchester City star Jack Grealish was at the centre of a special stadium tour planned by the club’s charity to surprise local schoolchildren

Local school kids were given an extra special tour of the Etihad Stadium as Jack Grealish popped up as a surprise to spend time with them.

The lucky children, all from four schools supported by Manchester City’s charity City in the Community (CITC) ranging from Years 5-8 across primary and secondary, unwrapped a large box blocking their route on the stadium tour to find the £100m winger in a lifesize version of his ‘Funk-Pop’ toy. After managing to get out of the packaging, Grealish took his time to chat to all of the kids before leaving them with a signed version of his new toy.

“I really like the design of the new toy – I think it looks like me with the beard and headband,” said Grealish. “Obviously it’s also cool that if you buy one of these, you’re also supporting City in the Community which is a really good thing.

“I really enjoyed meeting the young people today. I’ve visited the charity’s sessions a few times before, so know first-hand the difference they make to people in Manchester. It makes me really proud to know that the club is supporting this important work through its Christmas campaign.”

In recognition of the work that the charity are doing, the club are donating £5 to the CITC for every purchase made across a range of items. They have also pledged to treble any donations made to the charity, up to the value of £75,000.

As well as donating gifts to Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, CITC will be spending the Christmas period putting on more special events for schoolchildren and senior residents in addition to giving £10,000 to local organisations who provide free Christmas Day meals for families who need it most
