The Liverpool icon turned pundit has been critical of Grealish in recent times, describing him as a ‘good, not great player’ and making comments on his playing style.
But Grealish hit back at these remarks on Wednesday, telling reporters: ‘I don’t know what his [Souness’] problem is with me. He always says stuff about me.
‘I know he’s said a lot of stuff about me not moving the ball quicker but 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 it everywhere, that’s what I’ll try to do.’
Souness has now responded to the 27-year-old, insisting that he thinks Grealish is very naturally talented and ultimately the only person the attacking midfielder should take criticism from is Guardiola.
‘I don’t have a problem with Grealish, I don’t have a problem with anyone,’ he told talkSPORT.
‘I think he’s a good player, technically he’s fantastic, but being a really good technician is only a part of the game.
