Guardiola still on cloud nine over Norwich’s rout; praises Jesus

Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, was delighted with their 5-0 rout of Norwich City.

City swept the Canaries aside at the Etihad in front of a full Etihad crowd for the first time in 18 months and the boss couldn’t be happier.

“This result was the consequence of how many good things we have done,” said Pep.

“We are still not at the top – there are still many things to do. We trained, we were refreshed, happy for these first points…. hopefully they will not be the last!”

Guardiola was pleased with many aspects of the 5-0 win over the Canaries, but especially pleased with the display of man-of-the-match Gabriel Jesus who was involved in three of the goals against Norwich.

“He’s a player who likes to be wider than central position,” he said.

“One of the reasons why I’m a manager is when you can work with people and humans like Gabriel.

“He never complains, he plays five minutes, he plays the best five minutes he can do.

“He’s happy on left, right or centre and today the connection with Kyle was exceptional.

“I’m pleased with his performance; he was involved in three of our goals and is an Incredibly important player for us.

“He made an exceptional performance today, and I repeat, if he plays three minutes he plays the best three minutes for the club and everyone.

“The more you have in this position the better we are. When someone plays like this they deserve to play.

“He’s so young, big congratulations because he deserves in life the best. He’s so generous and as I say, I’m incredibly satisfied for him.”
