Why is Jack Grealish wearing a bandage on his hand?

Jack Grealish has been playing at the Euros with a broken left thumb which he suffered in a victory at Tottenham towards the end of last season.

The midfield ace has been seen with a bandaged left hand in his three games so far following a rough challenge in Villa's 2-1 win over Spurs on May 19.

Asked about the injury, England's No 7 said: “[Japhet] Tanganga from Tottenham threw me on the floor and I broke my thumb.”

On whether it had healed, the attacker showed reporters how bent his thumb was and added: “It's still like that a little bit isn't it?"

Though Grealish has revealed the worst part of having a thumb injury – he can no longer play his PlayStation.


Speaking of how he relaxes in his downtime, the 25-year-old said: "From what the guys have said they set up a lot of stuff but I suppose it is just the normal, Netflix and Playstation…

"I can't actually play at the moment because I have broken my thumb.

"I have had to knock it on the head a little bit at the moment so I can't play."
