An Intelligent Player With Versatility—Guardiola Praises



An Intelligent Player With Versatility—Guardiola Praises

Manchester City youngster, Rico Lewis must be ticking all the right boxes to win the appraisal of manager, Pep Guardiola from time to time when spoken of in press conferences.

Youngster Rico Lewis has been praised by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola as an astute player.

Lewis can play multiple positions, according to Guardiola, who hopes the 18-year-old will stay at Etihad for a while to develop his fledging career.

The Spanish player spoke during his pre-game press conference before Thursday night’s Premier League match between Man City and Chelsea.

Pep Guardiola said:

“He is such an intelligent player and can play in different positions.

“We are delighted the Academy has produced another top player, and we hope he can stay for a long time.”

Manchester City vs. Chelsea will be an important fixture for both teams who very much have everything to lose should they fail to capitalize on the game and come out with maximum points.

Manchester City have a title to chase for, and Chelsea is on the cusp of missing out on the big European competition next season should they slip further out of the top 4 places.

Of course, Chelsea has the lifeline of winning the Champions League should they miss out of a top 4 place, but even that option is like placing a wager over an elephant continually sitting balanced on a tree while the world watches.
