Man City fullback Cancelo: I came here to work with Guardiola; I'm very happy

Manchester City fullback Joao Cancelo says manager Pep Guardiola has transformed his game.

Cancelo admits he's delighted with his decision to leave Juventus last season for City.

On Guardiola, he says: "I like the way he plays: it was one of the reasons for coming.

"I like to dribble, make assists, I like to play technical and attractive football. The way he sees football, the fullbacks play a lot on the inside, with their backs to the opposing goal, I was not used to it, but with training, I feel that I'm better.

"He specifies every detail of the game a lot and I think that the improvement of the team also comes from there. The attention with which we watch the videos, I know what I have to do and I think my colleagues too."

Cancelo added: "I started badly, but from December I improved. I got it in my head that this was what I wanted and I'm very happy here."
