Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola is happy with Rico Luis. “He is very smart… It has earned him a warm welcome from everyone. I played really well,” he said, referring to the moment he left his place for Cancelo in the 85th minute.

The Manchester City manager does not hesitate to list Lewis’s virtues: “He has room for improvement, but he is an aggressive defensive one. Now, with the ball, it’s so good, From inside and outside. He has one-on-one, crosses and finishes well.”
The little winger – at 1.69m – earned a place in Guardiola’s plans thanks to an injury Kyle Walker. Merit, anyway, he did more than enough: heLast season, he won the Premier League title by 18 years and was named the best player in his team.
His mirror is Cancelo. “He has my style similar to mine,” he says. Rico Luis’ goal now is to establish himself with the first team. “Signing a defense back is very expensive. Our dream is to give a chance to someone from the quarry. Lewis works every day to improve. Now it’s up to him.” Babe concludes.
