Pep Guardiola makes an honest admission about Kalvin Phillips

Pep Guardiola has failed to get the best out of Kalvin Phillips.

Man City midfielder Rodri will be out for the next three games after he was sent off in the weekend over Nottingham Forest.

This opens the door for Kalvin Phillips who has struggled for game time since arriving from Leeds United in the summer of 2022.

He made just four starts last campaign and there were rumours of him leaving the Etihad in the summer.

There was uncertainty over the midfielder’s future this summer but City managed to keep hold of the talented midfielder.

“He has to be Kalvin Phillips,” said Guardiola. “But of course, being outside, sitting, seeing players in training sessions and what we are looking for in the training sessions and the meetings, helps a lot.

Marcelo Bielsa gave Kalvin the best of Kalvin in his career at Leeds. I’d love to have done with Kalvin what Marcelo has done to him. It is what it is.

“He decided to stay this summer, the club spoke with him and even for the fact he didn’t have many minutes, he said ‘No, I want to stay’. If he wants to stay, it’s okay, it’s perfect – he’s a lovely person.”
