Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola: “What can I say? In the second part of the league, he has been beyond perfect. He is a guy who is always so generous, and always has the sense to make the assist. But I think this season he has also had the sense to be prolific to score goals. He scored against Chelsea, he scored against Madrid, and he has been decisive in scoring goals. In the end, this is what makes the greatest. I am very pleased for him because, of course, scoring four goals in the decisive part of the league it is so important.”
“We have spoken. Not now, but during the years. You have to arrive in the box, you have to be close to the box, and you have to score. This season was the year that he has done better and better. Hopefully, he can continue not just this year but the rest of his career,” he added. “I have the feeling that now he has started to enjoy scoring goals. Before it was just assisting. Now I think he has the feeling that he likes it when his teammates come and hug him after he has scored a goal.”
