Ilkay Gundogan is a man full of happiness. Or as his manager says ‘I am very happy, believe me.’

After another great performance the German star spoke about his performance and how he feels as a leader on this team.

Let’s check it out-

“It’s a privilege to be a part of this team, of this group of players,” said Gundogan.

“Obviously, when you’re able to put performances like that on the pitch then even more. It’s a day full of happiness.

“I had a feeling that I couldn’t put a lot of power to the ball for the goal because I wasn’t sure if the defender in front of me was able to get it or not.

“I just tried to head it towards goal. It was quite close to the goal so the goalkeeper didn’t have much time to react.

“I’ve scored, I just try to be in the positions. I try to smell where the ball will drop.

“I was lucky to get the first goal. It was a good start to the game today. I just try to help the team. I try to adapt as good as possible.”

Great match, performance and win.
