Guardiola said: “Excellent. He’s back. He has turned his situation perfectly.
“He played really, really well with Ruben (Dias) as well, all of the back four were so brilliant defensively because it’s not easy.”
“He has been here more than five seasons and knows exactly what you have to do, what he has to do,” Guardiola added.
“Unfortunately, he could not do it in the previous years but now he has done it. It was himself, he settled perfectly in what he would like, no injuries, and showed his personality with and without the ball.
“We are delighted, and especially because he’s an incredibly nice person. His mum and dad must be so proud of how nice a person he is and his daughter has a top father.”
