Champions League: Guardiola speaks after Basel 4-0 thrashing by Manchester City

Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has heaped praise on his players after a 4-0 thrashing of FC Basel in the Champions League round-of-16 on Tuesday.

Guardiola had a special praise for star, Ilkay Gundogan following his two goals exploit in the encounter.

The Premier League leaders took a giant step towards the Champions League quarter-finals with goals from Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero.

Gundogan netted first in the 14th minute, heading home Kevin de Bruyne’s corner, before grabbing City’s fourth goal and sealing the win with a sensational strike just after half-time.

Guardiola told BT Sport after the game, “Gundogan is an extraordinary player.

“Last season we missed him a lot for the six months he was out with an injury.

“That’s why we’re so satisfied for the performance – not just for the goals for the quality he has, for the personality to play. He played fantastic.”
