Guardiola hails academy graduates Cole Palmer and James McAtee.
Manchester City head Guardiola is happy with the performances of his Academy player after the victory against Everton in Premier League on Sunday. The manager has hailed the impact of his young players. Academy graduates Cole Palmer and James McAtee both were stars in Man City’s dominating 3-0 victory against Everton.
Guardiola expressed his thought on the club’s website: “I said many times, all of us we believe, not just me, Txiki (Begiristain) as well, we believe we have a good generation in the academy, with four or five players with quite good potential to help us.
“These guys have a good quality. Cole (Palmer), James (McAtee), Romeo (Lavia), Sam Edozie – he is injured – Luke Mbete, Liam Delap is injured and a top striker. We have good players in the academy.
“When we can use them, I am delighted. We don’t give them opportunities just because they are in the academy, we believe in them and then it’s on them to show it.
“For our fans, I know how they like to see Phil and Cole and the next one to come. The rest is about being patient. Work hard and when they have opportunities, they have to play good.”
