“I will be no different” – Pep Guardiola receives bold claim from Manchester City star over Etihad opportunities



| Last Updated:


Manchester City midfielder Matheus Nunes has illustrated his belief that he will be entrusted by manager Pep Guardiola on a regular basis in the future.

The Portugal international became Manchester City’s final incoming transfer of the most recent summer window, having made a late move from Wolverhampton Wanderers following a period of striking to force through an agreement.

That signing came after City officials worked tirelessly to improve Pep Guardiola’s first-team squad after they were rocked by the long-term hamstring injury sustained by Kevin De Bruyne, and the departure of Ilkay Gundogan earlier in the market.

While Matheus Nunes may not have hit the ground running since signing for the reigning Premier League champions, he is certainly not short of belief, having highlighted his desire to succeed in Sky Blue as part of a new interview.

Speaking to Sky Sports News as part of an exclusive interview this week, Matheus Nunes detailed his belief that he will improve in all aspects of his game whilst working at Manchester City, merely through the quality of his teammates.

“I try to look at certain things other players in my position are good at, and see if I can put that in my game to become the most complete midfielder I can be,” Nunes admitted. “There’s so many here – Bernardo (Silva), so good.”

The Portugal international continued by naming additional impressive Manchester City midfield stars, “Rodri, exceptional. (Mateo) Kovacic, so good. Rico Lewis! He’s 18 and considering that, he’s such a good player.”

But development in the Manchester City squad will not come without the belief and guidance of one crucial figure, as Matheus Nunes continued about the role he believes Pep Guardiola will play in his rise at the Etihad Stadium.

“I still need to improve some things, but if Pep believes I should be here there is no reason why I shouldn’t. I want to score more goals, recover more balls, get more assists. But he improves every player who comes into the team, and I will be no different.”

Nunes and his Manchester City teammates will be hoping to bring an end to a run of four Premier League matches without a win this weekend, as they travel to Luton Town following a run of three draws and a defeat in the English top-flight.
