Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish has apologized after ignoring coronavirus lockdown measures to attend a party over the weekend.
Grealish was snapped on social media standing beside his car after a minor accident with the player accused of having gone for a night out with friends.
The incident came just hours after Grealish had urged the public to stay at home. In a public apology on twitter, the Manchester United target said:
"Hi everybody. I just want to do a quick video message just to say how deeply embarrassed I am about what has happened this weekend.
"I know it's a tough time for everyone at the moment, being locked indoors for so long and I obviously just got a call off a friend asking to go round to his. I stupidly agreed to do so.
"I don't want anyone to make the same mistake that I did, so obviously I urge everyone to stay at home and follow the rules and the guidelines of what we've been asked to do.
"I know for a fact that I'll be doing that in the near future now and obviously like I said, I urge everyone to do the same.
"I hope everyone can accept my apology and we can move on from this, and hopefully obviously in the near future, we can all be out enjoying ourselves again, once this has all boiled over. So cheers guys and thank you."
