The latest instalment of our Beautiful Football masterclass videos with Pep Guardiola focuses on Nicolas Otamendi.

The Argentine, named in the PFA Team of the Year this season, has been magnificent en route to winning the Premier League and Carabao Cup.

Guardiola has helped turn him into one of the best ball-playing centre-halves in Europe and, here, the manager discusses the characteristics that make Otamendi such a fine player.

"Character. The courage. Wins duels. Plays injured, it doesn’t mater, always is there. He’s one of the best players in the build-up and now he is a master."

You can hear the full instalment via the video above.
