Grandad whose van was smashed by footie ace Jack Grealish's Range Rover is still waiting for an apology

A GRANDAD whose van was smashed by Jack Grealish is still waiting for him to get in touch and apologise.

Reginald Woodcock, 73, labelled footballers overpaid and self-entitled.

The Aston Villa captain’s lawyer told a court that Grealish was “genuinely sorry” for the damage caused by his £90,000 Range Rover.

But Reginald insisted he had not heard from the England midfielder.

He also admitted he didn’t know who the star was.

He said: “I don’t follow Villa — none of them. If that’s the way he wants to live his life, that is up to him, but footballers are overpaid.”

Birmingham magistrates were told on Tuesday that £130,000-a-week Grealish had offered to pay for all damage.

His 4×4 hit the van, a £30,000 Mercedes and a wall, as he tried to leave a pal’s house at 8.40am — allegedly smelling of drink — during lockdown.

Mr Woodcock had left his van outside his son’s home in Solihull, West Mids, ten miles from Grealish’s house in Barnt Green, Worcs.

The OAP added: “There was a little bit of damage. I don’t know who dealt with it. I didn’t pay for the repairs.”

Grealish, 25, got a record fine for a player of £82,900 and a nine-month ban after admitting careless driving charges, a second relating to speeding.
