Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has described Rico Lewis as one of the best players he has ever coached.

Lewis played a starring role in City’s Champions League 3-1 win at RB Leipzig.

The 18-year-old produced a fine display as the holders maintained a winning start to their campaign on the continent.

Guardiola, who has worked with players like Lionel Messi, Xavi and Andres Iniesta in the past, said: “What a player! What a player!

“I’ve been a manager for 14, 15 years and lucky to train one of the best players in the world in Barcelona.

“To find a player like him playing in the pockets, how he has to move as a holding midfielder, moving in the spaces, he is one of the best I’ve ever trained by far.”
