The mystery surrounds Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish as police investigated reports of a Range Rover crashing into cars parked in a suburb of Birmingham.
The images emerged on social media on Sunday of a white Range Rover, as well as a separate image of a man who looks like Grealish apparently in a conversation with another person. The person in question is wearing strange shoes – with a slipper and a cursor. It is unclear when the photos were taken.
A West Midlands police spokesman said the £ 70,000 vehicle crashed into two stationary cars, adding that they would like to speak to the driver.
The white Range Rover was shown damaged after reports of an accident with parked cars
The image of a man who looks like Jack Grealish, wearing strange footwear, circulated on social media, claiming to be close to the accident
A witness said Sportsmail that Grealish was the man on the scene, accompanied by retired footballer Tony Capaldi, adding that he had been seen leaving a building where former Villa teammate Ross McCormack owns a luxury apartment.
The midfielder Grealish had already been seen arriving on the training ground of Aston Villa in a similar white Range Rover.
Grealish and McCormack were not both available for comment.
West Midlands police said, “We were called to Waterside, Dickens Heath, just before 10 am to report that a Range Rover had crashed into two cars parked on the street,” read the note.
Grealish is the captain of the Aston Villa club and has been with his boys club since 2001
‘The driver left his details with a member of the public on the scene before leaving on foot and will be informed by the police in due course.
Mild damage was caused to parked vehicles. The agents are investigating the circumstances and anyone with information has been asked to get in touch. ”
The incident occurred outside an estate where Grealish Aston teammate Villa Ross McCormack owns a luxury penthouse.
Current government advice during the coronavirus crisis states that citizens should leave their homes only to shop for basic needs, to practice once a day, for any medical need or to go to work if they cannot work from home.
On Saturday, Grealish seemed to echo that advice as he posted a video for his Twitter followers asking them to stay home.
“To help save lives, you need to stay home,” he said.
The 24-year-old has established himself as a key man for Villa and is currently a club captain
‘You only leave home to buy food, buy medicine or exercise and always remember to be at least two meters away. This is urgent. Protect the National Health Service. Stay home. Save lives. ‘
As in the rest of the Premier League, Villa players are currently following fitness programs at home, with the Bodymoor Heath training ground closed.
Grealish, who earns around £ 45,000 a week at Villa Park, joined his boys’ club at the age of six and climbed the charts to become a key player in the Midlands outfit.
The 24-year-old was heavily tied to a departure from the club last season due to his impressive performances in midfield – approaching Tottenham last season, even if the move failed.
Since making his turn in the 2013-14 season, he has continued to play 176 times, scoring 24 goals and providing 22 assists.
Grealish was never part of the English senior team, but he played seven times for the U21 team. He played in two Cup finals for Villa, starting both in the 2014-15 FA Cup final and the Carabao Cup final this season.
