Jack Grealish recently spoke out about his relationship with Erling Haaland, calling him a “brilliant” player and revealing that he shares car rides with the 22-year-old. He’s excited to play with Haaland and believes the Norwegian international will be “unstoppable” when fully fit.

Paul Robinson believes that Pep Guardiola will be delighted to see his playmaker and striker getting on so well, as it usually means they’ll work together on the pitch. He says it’s a good thing for Manchester City that the two attackers are so in-sync.

He told Football Insider: “Players of a similar age at a club tend to gravitate towards each other. They tend to socialise with one another as well because footballers lives are very different to other peoples.

“You cannot do what your mates are doing. You have to make sacrifices. To have somebody at your club, that you get on well with and can socialise with is great. It will only benefit the team on the pitch in the long run.

“You can see that relationship bearing fruit. It looks as if Haaland has settled in very quickly which bodes well for them ahead of the new season. I’m excited to see what he can do.”

Grealish endured a disappointing debut season at Manchester City, scoring just three goals with three assists from 26 Premier League games, so he has a lot to prove this coming campaign.

Gabriel Jesus has been sold to Arsenal while Raheem Sterling has been sold to Chelsea, so the 26-year-old will be relied upon for goals and assists. David Silva looked out for fellow Spanish-speaker Sergio Aguero on the pitch and assisted many of his goals, so can Grealish and Haaland form an on-pitch relationship that is as successful?
