Man City boss Guardiola hails Alvarez: Always professional; always ready

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is delighted with the form of Julian Alvarez.

Guardiola has praised Alvarez for grabbing his chance amid injuries to several of his attacking players.

Ahead of facing Nottingham Forest, Guardiola said: "Always have good behaviour, playing, not playing, being a world champion or not.

"Always the same.

"The perfect dose of disappointment when he doesn't play but always ready for the opportunity. Last season we had Ilkay [Gundogan] and Kevin [De Bruyne]. Right now with the injuries he's had minutes and he gives us a lot of good things.

"That's why he's playing but he has to continue. Many games, some games he won't play, hopefully, players come back and fight for positions."
