Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester is paying tribute to new Manchester City record signing Jack Grealish by honouring him in brick form.
The team at Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester are celebrating Jack’s signing by kitting him out in his new sky-blue colours and giving him his very own welcoming party outside the Miniland’s Etihad Stadium.
The welcome party includes mini figure fans waving blue flags in celebration with a billboard reading ‘Jack 10’, complete with a one-of-a-kind Jack Grealish mini figure (but without the alice band) showing his name and number on his very own City strip.
Legoland Discovery Centre are no strangers to celebrating Manchester’s footballing achievements , having built a giant Premier League trophy – blue ribbons and all – when City were confirmed as champions back in May.
Jenn McDonough, Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester’s general manager said: “All of us here at the centre are thrilled to welcome Jack to the City squad – except for the United fans of course – and wanted to show him a warm welcome, the best way we know how.
“He was a true asset to the England team during the Euros and we’re hoping he can hit the ground running and continue to impress us throughout the season. Our new LEGO mini figure of Jack Grealish is our way of wishing him good luck at the club, however, we hope he’s a little less static when he takes to the pitch!”
Grealish arrived at the club for a UK record transfer fee of £100m this summer and made his debut against Leicester in the Community Shield on Saturday.
He left boyhood club Aston Villa after spending 19 years there and has joined City, who will be hoping to win the premiership for the second successive season. City manager Pep Guardiola will be hoping the signing of Grealish will help the team build on last season’s success.
