Campbell predicts Grealish role at Man City after latest development
Kevin Campbell insists Jack Grealish will start all of the big games for Manchester City despite a wealth of attacking options at the club.
The Arsenal icon, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, did claim the attacker will be rotated just like everyone else at The Etihad.
On Thursday, Villa announced the departure of Grealish in what the club said was a £100million deal.
Grealish, 25, has several stars breathing down his neck looking for a starting position in Pep Guardiola’s attack.
The attacker was used off the bench in Saturday’s Community Shield loss to Leicester.
Campbell is expecting Grealish to be rotated at his new club but insists he will start in City’s biggest clashes.

“In the modern game, a starting position is a rotational position,” Campbell told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.
“There are so many games, Premier League, Champions League, the cups.
“When that all starts, City want to win everything. We all know how Pep works.
“He will rotate his squad so they have the best chance of winning everything.
“But when the big game comes around, Grealish will start.
“You don’t spend £100million on someone who sits out the big games.”
City are looking to defend their Premier League crown this year while also going one better in the Champions League after losing in last season’s final.
Guardiola’s side start their league campaign with an away clash against Tottenham next weekend.
