Man City’s Jack Grealish fails to top scientific list of football’s best lookers

Man City’s £100million record signing was only ranked 345th in a symmetry test of the most attractive Premier Leaguestars despite being labelled a Euros heartthrob by many fans

Man City new boy Jack Grealish could only manage 345th place

Euros heartthrob Jack Grealish has won legions of ­admirers but he is far from the beautiful game’s most handsome player.

The midfielder, 25, with his athletic calves, glossy hair and warm smile, was only 345th most attractive of 582 Premier League stars.

A symmetry test rated the face of Man City’s £100million record signing at just 54.83%. The winner – Brighton ’s 22-year-old Polish player Jakub Moder – scored 90.82%.

Next were Watford ’s Kiko Femenía, 30, on 90.4%. Joint third, on 89.75%, were Kiko’s Danish club mate Philip Zinckernagel, 26, who is on loan to Nottingham Forest, and Leicester City’s Turkish defender Çaglar Söyüncü, 25.

Watford also took the fifth spot with 24-year-old Chilean Francisco Sierralta rated 89.18%.

Then came Norwich City’s Przemyslaw Placheta, 23, on 88.53%, Chelsea ’s Kepa Arrizabalaga, 26, 88.37%, and Everton ’s Ryan Astley, 19, 88.35%.

Completing the top 10 were Newcastle ’s Joe Willock, 22, on 88.1%, and Brighton’s Shane Duffy, 29, 87.82%.

The hottest club was Norwich, where players averaged 67.47%, followed by Man Utd at 65.45%, then Watford, Chelsea and West Ham United, all above 63%.

The website said of the players: “It’s not just their skills that stand out on the pitch.”

Grealish, 25, became the most expensive British footballer of all time as his record £100million switch to Manchester City was confirmed earlier this month.

The transfer comes a season after City’s local rivals Manchester United pursued the Villa skipper for much of the summer window

“Playing under the best manager in the world was something I couldn’t really turn down,” Grealish told mancity.com.

“When I came here this morning I had a long chat with him about positions. It was all football.

“It was such a positive chat. It shows why I want to play under him.

“I have heard nothing but good words about him from the lads at England and I can’t wait to get started.

“In the end it was something I couldn’t turn down. Let’s hope it’s a successful one.”







He also added: “It was obviously a difficult few months because I have been an Aston Villa fan for my whole life, but when I spoke to the manager here and you see what type of players they have got here, in the end it was something I couldn’t say no to.

“Competing for major trophies is something that I wanted to do. It was something I couldn’t turn down.”

City director of football Txiki Begiristain said: “Jack’s development over the past few seasons both for club and country has been plain for everybody to see.

“His natural talent together with his commitment to improve as a player has seen him become one of the most exciting attacking players in world football today.”

Grealish will wear the No 10 shirt recently vacated by Sergio Aguero.
