EPL: Man City boss Guardiola delighted in Akanji after victorious outing at Wolves

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was delighted with Manuel Akanji for victory at Wolves.

The Swiss defender has looked completely at home since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund and was again the perfect mix of composure and aggression as he completed the 90 minutes with a second clean sheet in three matches.

Asked what he thought of his performance, Guardiola said: “More than exceptional – he is so, so clever – whether the play is short or long – when he goes, he goes, but not too much to give away a penalty or cause falls.

“He is so aggressive to go across the opponent and has the perfect temperament to control the situation. Really, really good.

“And John (Stones) was brilliant at full-back, and I’m so happy he could do it two games in a row because we need him.”
