Manchester City qualified for the Champions League final with a stunning win over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter were wowed by the performance of their star Ruben Dias.
After winning 2-1 in last week’s away leg, Man City went into tonight’s semi final second leg against PSG as favourites to progress at the Etihad Stadium.
Pep Guardiola’s side won 2-0 on the night to wrap up a comprehensive 4-1 aggregate victory.
Riyad Mahrez was the hero with a goal in each half, as they caught out the French visitors several times on the counter-attack.
Meanwhile, at the other end of the pitch, Man City defended heroically at times to keep a clean sheet on the night.
A selection of Man City supporters on social media named their centre-half Dias as a colossus in the heart of their defence.
Alongside centre-back partner John Stones, he got in the way of so many shots in the box to keep his side in control in the tie.
Dias, 23, has been phenomenal during his first year in English football, and has completely helped to reshape the club’s backline by improving others around him.
The Portuguese warrior defender shows signs of being old fashioned with his style of play by launching his body at all attempts on goal, something which makes him a perfect fit for the Premier League and a huge favourite with the fanbase.
Here are some Man City fans discussing Dias:

Is this performance by Dias the best champions league performance by a centre back ever?
