England star Jack Grealish reveals secret hobby – and even has a nickname to go with it | The Sun

ENGLAND star Jack Grealish has revealed he is learning to become a DJ.

Grealish, 27, has been open about his love to party when he's not on the pitch and showed why he's called "Jack the Lad" last summer when he celebrated City's Premier League title in Ibiza and Las Vegas.

The versatile forward also declared he would be a club promoter in Spain if he didn't make it as a professional football player.

And it looks like he is preparing to cross over to that area, perhaps after he hangs up his boots.

That is why Grealish is trying to learn how to DJ, and even came up with the nickname of "DJ Greal-O".

The City star, though, admitted during an interview with former Love Island participant Josh Denzel that he is currently "awful" at it but won't give up as he wants a new hobby.

Grealish told BT Sport earlier this season: "Mate, do you know what? You know me. Actually, I like every type of music. I'm actually trying to start, I'm trying to learn to DJ at the moment."

Denzel cut in: "Jack Grealish the DJ, yeah?"

Grealish responded: "Yeah, DJ Greal-O. Nah, I don't know what name [it] is."

Denzel asked: "How good are you at DJing? Because I tried and I gave up."

Grealish said: "I am awful, I am awful but everything takes time, doesn't it? I'm trying to learn Spanish as well. Spanish in a brummy accent, yeah.

"But I just want like, do you know what it is? I want to try and learn some stuff outside of football and have like a hobby and stuff.

"I watch a few stuff on TV but when I thought about it, I don't actually do a lot of stuff outside of football.

"So I want to learn to do some stuff. People say DJing, and once you get the hang of it – obviously it takes a lot of time – but it's something that you can really enjoy."

Grealish has come on as a second half substitute in both of England's World Cup games so far in Qatar.

Now the ex-Aston Villa man will be hoping he can force his way into the starting line-up for the final group stage match against Wales on Tuesday.

England will top Group B if they beat Wales and are already guaranteed a spot in the last 16 if they can avoid a four-goal defeat.
