Pep Guardiola Praises Patrick Roberts After He Scored Against His Parent Club Manchester City 

share on:

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola refused to be drawn on the future of Patrick Roberts after he scored against his parent club for Celtic in the Champions League on Tuesday.

“We are going to talk about it at the end of the season,” Guardiola told his post-match press conference.

“We know his quality but the decision is not about one game. It is for one season for the perspective.

“He has good quality with the winger, one against one. He worked defensively. He has, of course, potential. I am so happy with his performance, of course.”

Roberts has scored 10 goals for the Scottish Premiership leaders since arriving on an 18-month loan deal in January.

Celtic manager Rodgers described him as a “top young English talent” and said he is “in the right place at this time in the career”.

“There’s no point in him sitting on the bench and not playing,” the Northern Irishman added.

“I’m sure there will be a big career for him at Manchester City. He’ll come back here in the summer and Pep and his staff will have a real good look at him.

“But I think they’ll be really encouraged by what they saw.”
