Sheffield Wednesday’s Barry Bannan has come out in defence of Jack Grealish.
The Manchester City player has come under criticism for images that have been released during his holidays in Las Vegas.
The playmaker’s season ended last week following the conclusion of the international break.
This has seen the 26-year old put under scrutiny for images that have come out of him enjoying his holiday in the USA.
The Owls’ midfielder has come to the defence of the Premier League winner, claiming that the Englishman is not doing anything to deserve this level of media attention.
The Wednesday player believes that Grealish is simply enjoying his holiday like most top division players so needs to be cut some slack.
“What is Jack Grealish actually doing wrong by being in vegas enjoying his time off lay off the kids back most other premier league players doing exact same but nothing being said !” wrote Bannan, via his official Twitter account.

Quiz: Can you name which club these 27 ex-Sheffield Wednesday players are playing for now?
Grealish enjoyed a successful first season at the Etihad, playing a role in the team’s league victory.
He arrived at City 12 months ago from Aston Villa in a record British transfer fee of £100 million.
Bannan was a key player for Darren’s Moore’s side, playing 45 league games for the team as they earned a 4th place finish in League One.
Bannan is doing good to come to the defence of Grealish, who has not warranted this level of media scrutiny.
Most professional footballers are on holidays at the moment after a historically long and taxing season at the elite level.
Grealish has earned a break from the sport and he should be allowed some privacy in his time off.
As long as nobody is harmed and it has no negative impacts on his career then this level of scrutiny is completely unnecessary.
