Jack Grealish refutes allegations of mocking Fluminense during Man City’s Club World Cup final victory

Manchester City’s Jack Grealish rebutted claims of disrespect towards Fluminense during Friday’s Club World Cup final victory. After the final whistle, tempers flared briefly as City captain Kyle Walker and Fluminense defender Felipe Melo got into a heated argument. Melo accused Grealish of stoking tensions by shouting “olé,” claiming that it was disrespectful towards the Fluminense institution. However, Grealish denied this accusation, clarifying that he did not say “olé.”

Despite the brief altercation, City went on to secure a comprehensive 4-0 victory over Fluminense, with Julian Alvarez scoring twice, Phil Foden adding another goal, and Nino scoring an own goal, leading to City’s fifth trophy of the year.
