Aston Villa star Jack Grealish has been embroiled in controversy over the course of the last 48 hours.
According to the Daily Mail, the 24-year-old is facing a £150k fine after attending a party at Ross McCormack’s flat in the midst of a nationwide lockdown.
Grealish reportedly crashed his Range Rover into two parked cars after leaving McCormack’s place, and the incident has stirred up a media frenzy.
The player in question has since apologised via his Instagram account and urged fans not to make the same mistake that he has.
In response to reports, Ian Wright delivered his verdict on the unfolding events while speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, detailing both his disappointment and surprise.

The BBC Sport pundit went on to back a player he claims he regularly messages, and suggested that Grealish must learn from this mistake.
The 2019/20 season has been a resounding success on the pitch for Grealish.
How this fiasco will impact on his future chances of earning a Three Lions call-up, though, remains unclear.
