Ulrika Jonsson weighs in on Jack Grealish drama


Ulrika Jonsson has weighed in on the Jack Grealish drama, slamming the footballer for remaining the ‘golden boy’ while his rumoured flames are pitted against each other.

The model, 54, said that ‘misogyny is still the highest scorer’ after social media trolls jumped on the narrative of ‘two women fighting over one man.’

Jack, 26, has reportedly been dating both actress Emily Atack, 31, and former Love Island star Amber Gill, 24, while still in a relationship with his childhood sweetheart Sasha Attwood.

Ulrika compared the situation to when she had an affair with with former England football manager Sven-Göran Eriksson for four months, who was dating lawyer Nancy Dell’Olio at the time. 

She told The Sun: ‘Supposed trysts with actress Emily Atack and Love Islander Amber Gill, away from his long-term girlfriend Sasha, have come to the fore.

‘As per usual, there is pity for the long-term girlfriend, with Emily and Amber being trolled for purportedly ‘stealing’ him.

‘But all the while, Jack remains a golden boy in the England team, while the rest of the world awaits handbags at 20 paces between the women.

‘Misogyny is still the highest scorer.’ 

She went on to explain how when she dated Sven the public would pit her and Nancy against each other, using football analogies such as ‘Nancy 1 Ulrika 0’. 

Ulrika added that reports ‘turned a tale of a weak, selfish man into a story about two desperate women.’

Ulrika and Sven stunned the sport and showbiz world when she confirmed widely-publicised reports of an affair between the duo while he was dating Nancy.

As a result of the affair she was given a column in The News Of The World in 2003 where she would frequently comment on his private life. She was dropped in 2007 after he left as England manager.

Ulrika has regularly spoke about her fling with Sven, and in 2013, his ex Nancy said of her claims: ‘That made me smile. That was her experience? If the sex was bad, maybe it was her fault.’

Footballer Jack is said to be ‘agonising’ over whether to stick with girlfriend Sasha Atwood or date Emily Atack. 

He reportedly attempted to play down his friendship with Emily after being issued with an ultimatum by his girlfriend Sasha over their secret dates. 

A source claimed to The Sun that Jack was ‘agonising’ and ‘has got some thinking to do’. 

The Manchester City star is said to have formed a close friendship Emily over the past six weeks, with Sasha finding out after England’s 5-0 win against Albania on Friday.

A source said: ‘Sasha has been rocked by news of Jack’s secret friendship. She had no idea. Jack has apologised to her for any upset caused, and they were due to meet to discuss their future.  

‘Jack is really confused. On the one hand, he’s being advised to stay loyal to his childhood sweetheart for all sorts of reasons — commercial and otherwise. 

‘But on the other, he’s intoxicated by Emily’s company. He can’t seem to stay away from her. Plus loads of his club mates have crushes on Emily too — so they’re saying something different.’

It comes after Amber Gill vehemently hit back at claims she had been secretly dating footballer Jack Grealish as well in an impassioned Instagram statement on Friday. 

The former Love Island winner, 24, posted to her Story to say: ‘I’ve never been the ‘other woman’ nor will I ever be!’ – and told how she had received death threats over the claims.
