Jack Grealish given new nickname by Man City squad after Stefan Savic fight

Jack Grealish has been given a fitting new nickname by some of his Manchester City team-mates after getting into a couple of scraps with Atletico Madrid star Stefan Savic.

Pep Guardiola's side squeezed into the Champions League semi-finals following a tense 0-0 draw at the Wanda Metropolitano last night, but their nerves were tested in the closing stages when handbags broke out between the two sides.

Savic instigated it all after trying to drag Phil Foden to his feet after the Englishman was hauled to the ground by Felipe, before later butting heads with Raheem Sterling and tugging at Grealish's Gucci-insured hair.

Grealish and Savic would later clash in the tunnel after the game before reportedly being separated by police officers as tensions boiled over from their bitter feud which began during the first-leg last week.

According to The Mirror, Savic told Grealish: "I'll have you in Madrid" after the two came to blows at the Etihad Stadium, to which the £100 million midfielder responded saying he was looking forward to the second-leg and wasn't afraid of anyone.

And after methodically getting under Savic's skin again last night, some of the City players have started calling Grealish 'Peaky Jack', in reference to the TV show Peaky Blinders, which is based around a street gang in the former Aston Villa man's hometown, Birmingham.

Is Jack Grealish the biggest s***house in the Premier League right now? Let us know what you think in the comments section.

VAR somehow failed to spot Savic's on-field antics and the Montenegro international escaped with just a booking, though there's a decent chance of some retrospective punishment being handed out, particularly after the defender was seen lunging at a group of City players and staff in the tunnel after the game.

Victory sees City progress to their second successive Champions League semi-final. Up next is a titanic double-header against Real Madrid, who inched past Chelsea in extra-time on Tuesday.
