Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was full of praise for Manuel Akanji after his debut against Sevilla.

The German defender, signed from Borussia Dortmund last week, started in the 4-0 victory.

“He trained one day and a half with us, but he showed what experience he has at Dortmund and what a good central defender Manchester City brought to us,” Guardiola declared.

“He has quality similar like Aymer (Laporte) – he can break the lines with the pass.

“Manuel is really intelligent and great with the ball. City brought me and the club a fantastic player

“He’s a fantastic age at 27 and mature so yeah, really good.

“He reads really well the spaces, and I am very pleased for him.”
