Joao Cancelo now happily settled at Man City

Joao Cancelo says he's happily settled at Manchester City.

The fullback was unsettled over the summer, but says he's now happy playing for City manager Pep Guardiola.

“One of the reasons why I joined Manchester City was to be managed by Pep Guardiola," Cancelo revealed to City's website.

“When I was a kid, I used to follow his FC Barcelona. I enjoyed the style of play he implemented there.

“That's why I decided to come here.

“With him, it's continuous learning. He is a great manager, you learn with him every day, you become a better player both technically and tactically.

“I think both myself and my team-mates feel we improve as players every day that we spend under his command. Without a doubt, he is [a demanding manager].

“Exigency is something we don't miss in our daily routines. I think players with our quality and our level need to have that exigency to be better footballers."
