Guardiola Lauds Bravo’s Heroics

share on:

Pep Guardiola has heaped praise on goalie, Claudio Bravo for his heroics against Wolves, as they made it to the quarterfinals.

Manchester City could not break down Wolves over 120 minutes, as the match ended goalless after extra time.

Bravo proved to be the hero on penalties, saving two spotkicks, as City won 4-1 after extra time.

“Claudio helped us to qualify for the next round,” Guardiola told Sky Sports.

“You analyse how many chances we had and how many they had and we had more, but in the special moments Claudio was outstanding.

“I don’t know [if it was his best game for City] but of course he was so determined in terms of their one against ones with the goalkeeper, and then to save two penalties – so he is the man of the match by far.

“It is good for us, it is important to continue in that competition. It is a special competition for many reasons. We played with determination.”

Guardiola added: “Claudio gave us the chance to go through, I’m so happy for him, the way he trains, he made a good performance.

“Last season was not easy for him, but he is a goalkeeper of a high level – he deserved that performance.”
