Roy Keane jokingly referred to Jack Grealish as ‘Tom Daley’ while talking about the Manchester City player’s dive against Aston Villa on Sunday.
Pep Guardiola’s side ran riot against Aston Villa on Sunday evening, winning 3-1 and losing the gap between them and league leaders Arsenal.
Keane who was alongside Micah Richards in the Sky Sports studio, called Grealish ‘Tom Daley’ after he went down easily to win a penalty but did agree that it was the correct decision.

‘You have to give the penalty, Jack was being very, very smart. Very naïve the defending from Ramsay but he does kind of catch him.’ The Irish man said.
‘Jack kicks himself more than anything else. He’s more like Tom Daley but I think it is a penalty and it’s clever from Jack. He gets his body across, he knows exactly what he is doing – gives the referee almost no option but to give the penalty.’
🗣️ “I’m going to text him later on… he made a meal of that!” 📞
