Pep Guardiola has development plans for youngster Liam Delap

Liam Delap can offer something different claims Guardiola.

Man City teenager Liam Delap has struggled with a string of injuries but is now a regular member of the club’s first team.

The young talent will develop under the guidance of Pep Guardiola who has already made the bench in City’s last five games.

Guardiola said: “He is so young. The important thing is, if he is in training with us and playing minutes with us, it’s because he can be here. Otherwise, he would not be here.”

Guardiola continued, “But he is 19 years old. The 19-year old Phil Foden is completely different to Liam, that’s why we need to be patient. He could have scored against Fulham. Liam has that feeling, but he is a player who needs to improve a lot.

“He needs to improve in the first moments, the first touches. At the high level, it is completely different to the academy, but he is there every day and practicing with our staff and his mates, he will improve.”
