Guardiola impressed by Wilson-Esbrand display

Pep Guardiola was delighted with the display of 19-year-old Josh Wilson-Esbrand in the 1-0 win over Bayern Munich.

Speaking at his post-match press conference at Lambeau Field, the City boss heaped praise on the left-back who gave an assured display throughout.

"The problem with Josh is the last two years he was injured," said Pep.

"He had a problem with the knee and muscular issue, but we believe he has the potential.

"He’s aggressive to win the duels and with the ball is so clever, he has a good 1 v 1 defender and doesn’t feel the pressure with the ball.

"Today was an example of how our back four were pressed but didn’t lose much of the ball.

"He did a really good game. If we can control his injuries, we will have a full back for many years."
