Jack Grealish 'waited for Oriel Romeu in the tunnel' after pair clashed during Man City's draw at Southampton

JACK GREALISH wasn’t prepared to leave his feud with Oriel Romeu out on the field, according to Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl.

The Manchester City star is said to have ‘waited in the tunnel’ for his Saints rival after their side’s 1-1 draw.


The pair clashed during a fiery encounter at St Mary’s that snapped City’s 12-game Premier League winning streak.

Grealish, 26, reacted angrily to a heavy challenge from the Saints enforcer and sparked a melee with his on-pitch protests.

But the England international clearly felt he had unfinished business after the final whistle in Saturday’s late kick-off.

Southampton boss Ralph Hassenhuttl told Sky Sports: ”Grealish was waiting for him (Romeu) in the tunnel because of a few things that happened outside on the pitch.

"It was not right. But it's not here for the cameras, they spoke about it, everything is good."

City dropped their first Premier League points since October as they came from behind to nab a point from the Saints.

Kyle Walker-Peters gave the hosts a shock lead with a brilliantly-taken goal inside seven minutes.

But City eventually hit back when Aymeric Laporter headed home Kevin De Bruyne’s free-kick after the break.

Pep Guardiola’s men had won 12 top flight games on the bounce going into this game.

But Saints had beaten them here two seasons ago, as well as earning a 0-0 draw at the Etihad earlier this term.
