Aston Villa star Jack Grealish has been fined £150,000 for breaking government guidelines against the coronavirus outbreak.

With the United Kingdom on lockdown, Grealish was expected to be home and even urged everyone to stay indoors, as he posted a video on instagram.

However, the Villa captain went against his own advice to go to a friend’s house to party on Saturday night and even crashed his Range Rover in the process as he returned on Sunday morning.

The £75,000-a-week midfielder has now been fined two weeks’ wages by his current club Aston Villa.

A club statement read: “Aston Villa is deeply disappointed that one of our players ignored the Government’s guidance on staying at home during the coronavirus crisis.

“Club captain Jack Grealish has accepted that his decision to leave his house was wrong and entirely unnecessary. It breached the government guidelines which are clear and should be adhered to by everybody.

“The player will be disciplined and fined with the proceeds donated to The University Hospitals Charity in Birmingham.”
