Last night, Pep Guardiola, manager of Manchester City, praised one of his newest talents.
After a 3-1 victory over RB Leipzig in the Champions League, the Spaniard was overjoyed.
Guardiola took the time to emphasise Rico Lewis’ enormous contribution to the game.
What an actor. What a player,” stated Guardiola during the news conference following the game. 18 years of age. I’ve trained fantastic players as a manager for fourteen, fifteen years.
He is by far one of the best players I have ever trained because of how he plays in the pockets, how he moves in holding midfield, and how he moves in the spaces when the fullback comes inside.
“He is a quiet individual who is well liked by all of his friends.
“He didn’t play much this year, but he was an important point last year and he helped us realise what we needed to accomplish in our build up. Once more, today was proof.
“He hasn’t played as much this season, but he will play a lot.”
