Manchester City Boss Pep Guardiola is full of praise for right back Cancelo following his impressive performance in Man City’s victory over Borussia Mochengladbach last night.

The former Juventus man (Cancelo) put in an excellent performance and also grabbed two assists in Manchester City’s 0 – 2 away win over German side Borussia Mochengladbach in the Uefa Champions round 16 encounter last night.

Goals from Bernado Silva and Gabriel Jesus in either half of the game ensured City run away with all the three points against the German opposition. However it was right back Cancelo who caught the eyes of many with his assists for both goals.

Pep Guardiola spoke to the media shortly after game and was full of praise for Cancelo and in his words (Pep) has this to say,

Cancelo is playing really well.
Sometimes in that position we have to control the risk but the quality he plays there when he drives with the ball. He’s a player with huge quality – his physicality is overwhelming. His two assists were brilliant.”

Since the start of the season Cancelo has cemented the Man City’s right-back spot as he is the preferred option ahead of Walker.
