Pep Guardiola says one Manchester City player has been showing his quality in training
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has waxed lyrical about Ferran Torres following his amazing display for the Citizens last time out.
The 21-year-old joined City last summer in a reported £21million move from Valencia and has enjoyed a superb maiden season at the Etihad.
He has already clocked up 34 appearances for Pep Guardiola’s side, registering 13 goals and three assists.
And last Friday night, Torres bagged a sensational hat-trick as Newcastle United were beaten 4-3 at St James’ Park.
All three of the Spaniard’s goals were excellent improvisations, suggesting that the youngster is a natural finisher.
Guardiola wasn’t surprised, however, saying Torres has always shown what he’s capable of in training.
“The first goal was so nice, because it was a difficult execution,” he told the City media team.
“It took skill and talent and action. Ferran has always had the ability and showed in training.
“He is a good finisher, has pace and quality and decision making is always good.”
Torres is a player of the highest calibre and he certainly looks like he’ll have a superb career for City and for Spain.
City icon Paul Dickov has previously said that the club sees him as a future No. 9 (BBC Sport, 1 May, 13:49), so it’ll be exciting to see how he continues to develop in sky blue over the coming years.
