Joao Cancelo has been performing like one of the worlds best fullbacks and has now credited Pep with it. The Portuguese star spoke about Pep’s influence and how he’s changes.

Let’s check it out-

“I’ve grown up as a right back, but I like to be versatile and during the year we will always have injuries,”

“I like to be proactive in the team, I like to adapt to whatever position my manager puts me in.

“Pep (Guardiola) has been helping me a lot in this aspect. Nowadays I feel that I’m a better player mentally, physically and tactically.

“I try to do my best to adapt and help the team with the objectives.”

He certainly has a case to be considered among the worlds best. He has been on fire. Him and Kyle Walker have revolutionized how to play the fullback position and with Pep who knows how far the envelope will be pushed.
