Grealish under investigation, told to “grow up” after more off-field antics

BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) A symbol of the “too much, too soon” generation of promising young players in English football, Jack Grealish is being warned that his party lifestyle could ruin his career after Aston Villa launched an investigation into his latest off-field antics.

The 21-year-old attacking midfielder has generated more negative publicity after newspaper reports said police were called to a hotel to deal with complaints about an all-night party allegedly attended by Grealish, following Villa’s second-tier game against Ipswich on Saturday.

Roberto Di Matteo is the latest Villa manager to speak out about Grealish’s activities away from the football field.

“He needs to grow up very quickly,” Di Matteo said Thursday. “It’s not the first time, and he needs to understand (that) if he wants a good career he has to stop.”

After some impressive cameos for Villa in the 2014-15 season and early last season, Grealish – a technically gifted player – was touted as a potential star of the Premier League and caught in the middle of a fight between England and Ireland for his services. He said in September last year that he would represent England at international level, weeks after then-England manager Roy Hodgson said: “We think he could have a very good international career.”

However, his professionalism had been called into question by then. Grealish apologized to former Villa manager Tim Sherwood in April 2015 after being pictured inhaling from balloons at a party, and was pictured passed out in the street on holiday in the Spanish party resort of Tenerife the following offseason.

Sherwood’s successor, Remi Garde, dropped Grealish last season after the midfielder partied in Manchester following a 4-0 loss to Everton in November, and made him spend time training with the club’s youth team.

“When I was at Chelsea, I remember there were a couple of youngsters coming through. They made some mistakes,” Di Matteo said. “Some learnt from it and went on to have great careers. Others didn’t learn from it and didn’t have such good careers.”

Villa was relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season, and Grealish has started the new campaign in the second-tier League Championship in good form, earning him the reward of a new four-year contract this month. He was a member of the England under-21 squad that won the Toulon tournament in May.

Villa said Grealish has not been fined or disciplined yet, although both options remain open to the club.

“We instantly started an internal investigation … which is still ongoing,” Di Matteo said. “When it is finished, we will see what disciplinary action to take.”

Tottenham’s own Lionel Messi? Meet Marcus Edwards

This praise may have been taken slightly out of context, but still, Mauricio Pochettino obviously thinks highly of young Marcus Edwards.

[ MORE: Donovan on USMNT return ]

The 17-year-old attacking midfielder, who can play out wide or through the center, impressed while on tour with Tottenham’s first team this summer in Australia.

Along with several other talented youngsters, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Harry Winks and Tom Carroll to name a few, he is expected to feature for Spurs against Gillingham in their EFL Cup third round tie against third-tier Gillingham on Wednesday at White Hart Lane.

Behind-the-scenes at Spurs everyone is getting pretty excited about Edwards and ahead of this particular game former Espanyol player and manager Pochettino said the promising academy product reminds him of a player he saw at a young age during his time spent living, playing and coaching in Barcelona.

Yep, that guy.

“His qualities … it’s only looks – his body and the way that he plays – remember a little bit from the beginning of Messi,” Pochettino said. “He is a very good prospect and, potentially, he can be a top player but we need to be patient and tell him that he has a lot of talent, enough talent to be a top player, a great player, but now it’s how he builds his future – that’s very important. It’s our responsibility to tell him.”

Edwards’ nickname is also “Mini Messi” and although being mentioned in the same breath as him by Pochettino shows how much faith his manager has in him, it has to be pointed out that nobody is expecting him to go on to match Messi’s achievements in the game.

He is only 17, let’s not forget that, but Edwards has been earmarked for some time as the next star to come out of Tottenham’s academy. (Sidenote: I picked Edwards as my breakout player in the PL this season in our preseason roundtable).

After Harry Kane and Ryan Mason, Spurs have also had plenty of success signing the likes of Eric Dier and Dele Alli as youngsters and helping them develop rapidly into first team players in the Premier League.

So, remember the name, Marcus Edwards. And in case you don’t, here’s a video below which shows you a little bit of what he’s all about.

Turns out those Messi comparisons, at least aesthetically, seem pretty spot on…

How will Tottenham cope without Harry Kane?

Tottenham Hotspur will be without Harry Kane for at least a few weeks and probably longer.

How will they cope?

Mauricio Pochettino confirmed on Tuesday that Kane, 23, has damaged ligaments in his right ankle and gave no time frame on when he will return to action.

Media reports suggest Kane will be out for around 8-10 weeks which would mean a return in mid-November at the earliest. That means he will miss key games against Manchester City, Leicester City and Arsenal in the Premier League and also games home and away against Bayer Leverkusen and a trip to CSKA Moscow in the UEFA Champions League.

Whatever way you slice it up, losing Kane is a big blow for Spurs. He’s scored 51 goals in 88 PL appearances since bursting onto the scene in November 2014 and he’s been their top goalscorer in each of the last two seasons. Plus, Kane has missed just four PL games since the start of the 2014-15 season and Spurs have lost three and drawn one of those.

However, Pochettino is trying to take some positives from Kane’s injury.

“We need to be positive, now the damage is done and we can only be positive and try to help him to become stronger than before,” Pochettino said. “It’s important to help him, it’s a good opportunity to build not only his fitness and his mentality but to work hard in different aspects to help him to become more strong.”

Kane had failed to find the net in his opening four games of the season for Spurs after a disappointing EURO 2016 campaign with England but the striker had scored in each of his last two Premier League games for Spurs in wins over Stoke and Sunderland. That said, this rest may do him good as he’s pretty much played for two years straight after playing for England at the U21 European Championships last summer and at EURO 2016 this summer.

Now that Kane is out, what options do Spurs have? Here’s three.

1 – Vincent Janssen – The most obvious choice, the Dutch international now has his chance to shine in the Premier League. Outspoken in his desire to leave AZ Alkmaar this summer to head to White Hart Lane, Janssen has had a handful of starts as the main striker with Kane playing just off him. They didn’t work out too well but now that Janssen, 22, is set to get an extended run in the team, we will see what he’s made of. In truth, the leading score in Eredivisie last season and Kane are very similar players in that they are old fashioned center forwards who love to get on the end of crosses but can be seen dropping a little deeper to start attacks. Here’s your big chance, Vincent.

2 – Heung-Min Son – He’s played central before for Spurs last season in cup competitions and it didn’t quite work out. Now, though, Son is in good form and was the man of the match against Sunderland on Sunday and scored two goals away at Stoke last week. The South Korean has mainly operated out wide for Tottenham but he did play in a central role for Bayer Leverkusen during his time in the Bundesliga. Another really option for Pochettino, which would also open up a slot out wide for Erik Lamela to stay in the team.

3 – False nine or youth – This is a little drastic but if Pochettino doesn’t think Janssen is ready to start then he could have use a false nine in Christian Eriksen or Dele Alli. If either of those drops deep, then the likes of Son or Lamela can make runs in behind opponents defenses. Again, very drastic, but if neither Janssen or Son work then it could be the play. Also, there are a few youngsters from Spurs’ academy who could step in with Josh Onomah getting plenty of minutes over the last 12 minutes, plus young striker Shayon Harrison (currently injured too) or winger Marcus Edwards could be drafted in. Pochettino is a big believer in youth so don’t rule this out.
