Man City manager Guardiola claims Palmer has 'talent that is difficult to find'

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has praised Cole Palmer after his goal against Club Brugge on Tuesday.

The English teenager came on as a substitute and netted City's fourth goal in the 5-1 victory.

"Cole has a special quality in front of the box, a talent that is difficult to find," said Guardiola.

"When he has the ball there, most of the time it ends up in the net. It's difficult to find that.

"I know how it works with young players. We have to be calm and patient. His position is the second team but at the same time he trains with us and works with our principles.

"I am happy with the goal. He could have done a few actions a little bit better, but that is normal. It is experience. Step by step we give our young players an opportunity."
