Inside Jack Grealish’s three-day Treble bender: Man City star stayed out until sunrise two nights running in Istanbul and Ibiza, gulping down drinks and stumbling around… and Manchester’s up next!
- Man City’s players have been celebrating in style after completing the Treble
- Right at the heart of the various parties has been the popular Jack Grealish
- The City star has been on a three-day Treble bender ahead of Monday’s parade
Manchester City’s stars have been making the most of their historic season that saw them complete the Treble ever since the final whistle went in Saturday’s Champions League victory over Inter Milan.
In no surprise to anyone, front-and-centre of these iconic celebrations have been the hugely popular Jack Grealish.
The City winger is a larger-than-life character, well-known for his love of a night out and off-pitch escapades, which include being an ambassador for famous Italian fashion brand Gucci and he is perhaps the most marketable British footballer since David Beckham.
From leading the chants in the City dressing room post-match, leaving the stadium with a Heineken in hand along with a speaker blaring out Fleetwood Mac, Grealish emerged on Sunday morning still wearing his City kit.
After a boozy flight home, he continued the party by being among the group of stars who flew to Ibiza for a 12-hour stop off last night, before they returned to the UK ahead of Monday evening’s trophy parade.
Below, Mail Sport takes a look at Grealish’s three-day bender that has captured the imagination of thousands far and wide.

He is well-known for his love of a night out and hasn’t disappointed over the past few days
Seconds after Ederson pulled off a magnificent last-gasp save at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium, referee Szymon Marciniak blew his whistle.
Instantly, Man City’s players and staff sprinted the length of the pitch to celebrate the historic triumph with their fans, before they lapped up their achievement by lifting the trophy and enjoying every moment.
After a brief interview with BT Sport, where Grealish was so emotional he broke down in tears, it was full steam ahead.
The City team were seen celebrating in the changing rooms, with Grealish singing along to Fleetwood Mac as the players enjoyed several drinks and danced with the trophy.

Grealish also led the chants, which included his rendition of ‘Everywhere’ by Fleetwood Mac
Grealish also led the chants for matchwinner Rodri as he could barely hide his delight, before providing an entertaining spectacle for journalists in the mixed zone.
With a boombox in one hand and a can of Heineken in the other, Grealish – wearing his cap backwards – made his way towards City’s bus at almost half-past two on Sunday morning.
He led City’s players out and even mocked Kevin De Bruyne as he sauntered past loudly playing the same Fleetwood Mac song and this was only the start.

BACK AT THE HOTEL
City went on to party at the team hotel, JW Marriott, which overlooked the Marmara Sea.
It was tucked away a bit from the hustle of an enchanting city full of life, and certainly from the area near Taksim Square where their supporters drunk the place dry for three days.
Their heroes managed similar in a matter of hours, or seemed to do so with the number of Grey Goose vodka and champagne bottles knocking around.
Grealish then led the party back at their plush hotel in Istanbul into the early hours of Sunday

The hotel opened up downstairs for City, who had brought over the Premier League and FA Cup trophies for company.
Still in full kit, Grealish was leading chants at 5am – respectfully asking ‘have you ever won a Treble?’ with the answer not so polite – on a perch with Haaland, Kyle Walker and John Stones.
Grealish – two drinks in hand – was also seen rapping over thumping disco music as the party continued well into Sunday before City’s flight home.
Haaland shared a photo of him and Grealish looking bleary-eyed, with the Norwegian recently labelling the Englishman his ‘best friend in football’
Grealish then joined his team-mates for more Champions League celebrations on Sunday morning, although he was still wearing his kit from the night before.
While it’s unclear whether the England midfielder had slept, he certainly enjoyed himself and was joined by Kyle Walker, Erling Haaland, John Stones and Kalvin Phillips.

Phillips was holding the microphone while belting out John Stones’ famous ‘Johnny Stones’ chant, with the four other players joining in.
Grealish was then seen with his head poking out of a window on the roof of the team bus as fans clapped and cheered as they left.
He was determined to continue the party ahead of the flight home.
Kalvin Phillips, meanwhile, was still wearing his winners’ medal from the night before
With question marks over if Grealish had slept, he poked his head out the team bus as he continued to enjoy himself
The delirium felt among City players and staff only continued on the journey home as players posed for pictures with the trophy.
This included Grealish and Erling Haaland – who recently labelled the Englishman his ‘best friend in football’.
Grealish even made use of the plane’s intercom en route back from Turkey, much to his teammates’ amusement.

Then, as City arrived back at Manchester airport on Sunday afternoon and posed on the steps of their club-encrusted Etihad plane, the full state of Grealish’s celebrations could be seen far-and-wide.
In a video on social media, the England star could be seen stumbling his way towards the terminal building, looking completely out of it.
One fan even joked: ‘Grealish doesn’t have a clue what planet he’s on.’
After arriving back in Manchester, Grealish looked worse-for-wear as he came off the plane
SECRET IBIZA TRIP
Given the hugely heavy 24 hours and with the Treble parade set to get underway at 6:30PM on Monday evening, you would have forgiven Grealish and Co for using Sunday to get some much-needed sleep.
But not Grealish!
Along with a large group of teammates that included Haaland, Phil Foden and Kalvin Phillips, City players then jetted out to Ibiza for a night of partying ahead of a return back for today’s trophy parade.
Mail Sport – who exclusively revealed details of the 12-hour party trip – understands that those involved – who did not include manager Pep Guardiola – chartered a private jet from Manchester to the Balearic island to mark their history-making exploits in style.
Grealish (centre) was spotted wearing the same shirt from the night before as they landed back in Manchester after the 12-hour trip to continue the party in Ibiza.
Reports in Spain said the players that flew to Ibiza chose the adults-only Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel in the resort of Playa d’en Bossa.
It is considered to have one of the most famous beach dance clubs and can cater for 7,000 revellers.
They stayed at a the club until 6:30AM before flying back to Manchester around 10AM.
Upon arriving back in Manchester on Monday afternoon at 1PM, Grealish and Co were pictured leaving their flight.
The winger was seen wearing the same flowery shit he had on the night before as he departed the plane with the party set to continue back on English shores.
Who knows what will happen next?
This is Jack Grealish after all!
