Secret behind England and Man City star Jack Grealish's big calves and why he wears his socks low | The Sun

June 22, 2023

ENGLAND superstar Jack Grealish has revealed the secret behind his low socks and massive calves.

The £100million Manchester City midfielder, 27, has a eye-cathing look on the pitch and has lifted the lid on his style.

On those famous calves, he claimed it is all genetics, saying to the Daily Mail: "I actually don’t do anything. It’s just something that runs in the family.

"My grandad always had big calves when he used to play football.

"But I don’t do any calf exercises or calf routines in the gym or anything. Honestly, it’s just something that I’ve had since I was young."

And on those well-known low socks Grealish shared that superstition is the reason behind it.

He said: "I think I was about 14 or 15 and we were sponsored by Macron at Aston Villa and the socks used to shrink in the wash.

"In training I couldn’t get them over my calves because the socks were so small.

"So I started wearing them below my calves in training — and that season I ended up playing really well.

"So then I started wearing my socks below my calves in games. It was just something that stuck because I’d had such a good season."

Fans had their say on Grealish's calves when he played for the Three Lions in Qatar at the World Cup last year, with one saying: "So like, how big are Grealish's calves going to get?"

Another wrote: "Was very into the US-England game until noticing Jack Grealish's mutant calves, which became my entire focus afterwards."
