Pep Guardiola has given Jack Grealish the ‘cold treatment’ by pouring ice cold water over the Manchester City star’s head.
The Premier League champions are currently in Houston, Texas for their pre-season tour of the United States. City’s 26-man squad are preparing for their first friendly against Club America on Thursday at the NRG Stadium.
With the players undergoing intense training at the indoor and outdoor facility, they decided to collectively cool down post-session with a dip in the freezing ice tubs pitch-side. And £100million signing Grealish received a shock to the senses courtesy of manager Guardiola as he took a plunge.

The Spaniard walked up to the seated England international and appeared to have a brief conversation before cheekily pouring a bottle of water over his head. Grealish let out a slight scream as he flinched, while new mega-signing Erling Haaland chuckled.
In the clip uploaded by the official Man City Twitter account, Haaland appeared in fine form, finishing a variety of chances. His efforts even led to his team-mates singing his iconic ‘Haaland, Haaland’ chant from Borussia Dortmund.
The Norwegian was also joined by fellow forward signing Julian Alvarez as the pair continuously tormented goalkeeper Ederson with their finishing. The Brazilian shot-stopper was repeatedly beaten and at one point appeared flustered as the ball nestled into the back of the net yet again.
City will continue their US tour with a match against Guardiola’s former side Bayern Munich on July 24. They then face Liverpool in the Community Shield before getting their season underway at West Ham on August 7.
