Grealish insists he tries to stay away from most things that are said and written about him. However, he has faith in City boss Pep Guardiola that he is doing the right things on the pitch.
He said: “I don’t know what his [Souness] problem is with me. I try not to read it, obviously it’s difficult when he’s on talkSPORT or Sky Sports and it’s everywhere around the training ground at times.
“He was obviously a great player, I don’t know what it is with what he says about me or what problem he’s got. I know my own ability.
“I know before he used to say a lot of stuff about me not moving the ball quicker. But you know, when I’m playing for a manager like Pep Guardiola and he’s telling me to keep the ball as much as I can and have balls to take everywhere, that’s what I’ll try and do.”
