Regardless of the 'boys will be boys' argument, passing out (allegedly drunk) in the street is not a good idea for a Premier League footballer. As many have pointed out, it's the end of the year so Jack Grealish's performances are not going to be directly affected by his Tenerife escapades.
However, safety considerations have got to be taken into account. Who's to say a couple of rival fans couldn't happen upon a passed out Jack Grealish and decide to make 'legends' of themselves in some manner?
The Ireland u21 international is quickly learning that Premier League stardom comes with a quite a few drawbacks. The press interest that has sprouted up around Grealish since his star turn against Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final has been nothing short of 'whirlwind'. At the beginning it was positive. The future of Irish football, the future of English football, the future of football in general etc.
However, as tends to happen, that quickly turned into less positive attention. Aston Villa may not be happy with the coverage that Grealish has been receiving but even if you accept that the 19 year old hasn't exactly helped himself, this is just ludicrous.
