Leicester City take on Manchester City this weekend in the clash of the giants for the 2nd spot in the Premier League title race.
And before the match, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has praised his opposition’s striker Jamie Vardy.
“Because we play 40 metres in front, it’s perfect for him,” Guardiola said.
“Jamie Vardy scored goals against us and against all the teams, because in the box, in the final third, he’s exceptional.
“He’s one of the better strikers I’ve ever seen in movement, in finishing, in high pressing. In many things he’s an exceptional player.”
“I said when we played before, in our home game, how impressed [I was],” Guardiola said.
“I know the incredible job he did at Liverpool, but I was not here. I saw him when he was at Celtic in Glasgow and I thought, ‘Wow, this team plays good and aggressive and had good vibes’.
“They have incredible organisation at Leicester, with good scouting. They know exactly what they have to do, and it’s nice to see teams play as well as they play for the benefit of English football, to have this kind of manager and a team playing this way.”
