- Jack Grealish has begun pre-season early while on holiday in Greek city Athens
- The Manchester City star is relaxing in the capital after moving on from Santorini
- But he left girlfriend Sasha Attwood to train in the Mediterranean heat and sun
- Last summer’s £100m signing displayed the ripped physique of a Greek God
The Manchester City star is relaxing in the Mediterranean with girlfriend Sasha Attwood after a draining Covid-interrupted campaign.
But Grealish still found time to get his pre-season underway early in Athens.
He posted to his 5.1m followers on social media on Wednesday, with the caption: ‘Working in the heat,’ followed by a sun, running and football emoji – and it has already been liked more than 190,000 times.
The images show him striking a football on a sandy pitch under sunny blue skies, running across a grassy pitch at a training centre, volleying into an empty goal and posing in just his shorts, socks and boots.
Grealish is officially set to return to pre-season with City on Monday as Pep Guardiola’s side look to defend their Premier League title.

The £100million signing is set to officially return to Manchester City training on Monday
The 26-year-old had posted a similar set of training photos while holidaying on Greek island Santorini, with former Aston Villa team-mates Shay Given and Carlos Sanchez commenting to show their support.
Grealish flew to the capital city to train on his own at Athens-based champions Olympiacos’ complex.
He had earlier trained with a small local club on Santorini, who offered to move their under-10s camp to accommodate him.
The 23-cap international has spoken openly about the difficulties of adjusting to a much different style of football and the strict demands under Guardiola.
Grealish joined City from his boyhood club Aston Villa in a massive £100m deal last summer, becoming the most expensive English player ever and the sixth-most expensive of all time.
He made 38 appearances in all competitions, scoring six goals, as City pipped Liverpool to the league title by one point.
