Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has described Rico Lewis’s performance against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup as exceptional
Recall that Lewis was handed a start at the right-back position for the high-profile match, with Kyle Walker and Joao Cancelo absent after featuring for their countries at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar..
The 18-year-old was impressive as goals from Lewis, Erling Haaland, Riyad Mahrez and Nathan Ake ensured Man City defeated Liverpool.
Guardiola said Lewis was exceptional for Man City against Liverpool, adding that the Premier League champions are lucky to have him at the club.
“First half, the academy boys played really well,” Guardiola told Sky Sports.
“It has been a long time since I have seen a performance like Rico Lewis, a long long time ago.
“He’s 17 or 18 years old and has played against Liverpool, against big stars up front.
“The way he played with and without the ball, we are incredibly lucky to have this player for the next decade.
“Hopefully, the club can take him, the game he played was exceptional.”
