Kalvin Phillips tells the person who convinced him to join Etihad

Pep Guardiola convinced the midfielder to join Etihad this summer.

The 26-year-old midfielder believed it was a no-brainer when he knew he could work under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

The Cityzens paid a £42million transfer fee to Leeds United in order to secure his services.

He will play a crucial role in the midfield next season and is currently having an Amazon documentary made about his career.

Phillips further explained how Guardiola had a massive impact on the Englishman for his switch to the Etihad.

“The fact that they are managed by obviously one of the best managers in the world, it was a no-brainer when there were reports that City were interested.” Phillips told GQ.

“It was the only team that I was ever going to come to if I left Leeds. They (players) want to win as many trophies as possible, but the main thing was to be managed by Pep and try and learn as much as I can.

“It feels like I’m home already. It feels like I’m in a team that regards me as one of their own already.”
