‘Difficult to find’: Guardiola excited by what Matheus Nunes can bring to Man City


Pep Guardiola has backed new Manchester City signing Mathҽus Nunes can play in many positions as he has a quality that is “difficult to find”.

Nunes joined City in a £53 million ($67m) transfer from Wolves at thҽ end of thҽ summer transfer window and is yet to make his debut for thҽ English and European champions.

And while Guardiola feels thҽ Portugal international has a lot to improve, he believes his versatility will make him a valuable asset.

“He can play as a holding midfielder or an attacking midfielder. With time, he could play as a full-back because of his physicality,” he said.

“He has to improve with his first contact in decisions on one touch but his ability to dribble and drive with thҽ ball like Kevin [De Bruyne], his energy going backwards, he played in thҽ last games for Wolves as a winger. He can play in multiple positions and has special qualities that are so difficult to find.

“He can make 20 metres with thҽ ball dribbling. With time, he will learn to be more precise in simple things like first touch and first pass. With thҽ training and thҽ dynamic that we have, he will get it.

“He has qualities that we can improve but he also has qualities that a manager cannot improve and this is so important for us.
