Grealish jets off to Dubai after Gareth Southgate axes him from Euro 2024 squad

Jack Grealish has started an unexpected early summer holiday after he was cut from Gareth Southgate’s squad.

The £100million man, 28, wasn’t part of England’s final 26-man squad for Euro 2024. And he’s already kicking his feet up for the summer after the disappointment.

According to The Sun, he’s jetted out to the Middle East, where’s he linked up with his brother, Kevan, and a group of pals in Dubai. Kevan shared snaps of the plush apartment on his Instagram story – where Grealish is expected to join them.

Jack Grealish will now be enjoying his downtime

Southgate admitted that Grealish was devastated after he was cut from the squad. Speaking last Friday, he said: “I have just delivered a really difficult conversation to a lad who is devastated. I think the world of him as a kid.

“It certainly doesn’t get any easier. You put yourself in the shoes of a player, a parent. You understand that for these players this is a devastating moment.

We knew we had a couple of really difficult days coming up. The whole period has been tough, going back to talking to Marcus Rashford and Hendo (Jordan Henderson).
