Guardiola Reveals Player That Caused Man City Problems Against Newcastle
Manchester United manager, Pep Guardiola has hailed Allan Saint-Maximin after their 3-3 draw at Newcastle on Sunday.
City took the lead through Ilkay Gundogan at St James’ Park, only for Saint-Maximin to help turn the game around.
The winger set up goals for Miguel Almiron and Callum Wilson and was fouled for a free-kick which Kieran Trippier curled into the top corner.
Guardiola’s side escaped with a point, with Erling Haaland and Bernardo Silva clawing them level.
“Allan Saint-Maximin is really dangerous,” Guardiola told BBC Sport after the match.
It echoes comments from Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, who described the 25-year-old as “a proper footballer”.
“Newcastle are becoming one of the toughest opponents for sure,” Guardiola added.
