“Seven years of not knowing soccer”, “seven unbelievable years”
Ilkay Gundogan has left Manchester City. He wore a Barcelona jersey.
Guendouane was a major part of City’s golden era. He joined the club in 2016 and played for them for seven seasons until last season. It was a time when City became the dominant force in the English Premier League (EPL) and one of the best teams in Europe.
In his seven seasons, City won 14 titles, including five EPL championships. Most notably, they reached the top of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) for the first time in the club’s history and completed the treble for the first time.
The hero left City for Barcelona. Reflecting on his seven seasons at the club, Guendouane thanked Pep Guardiola. Guardiola thanked him in return. It’s a beautiful farewell between a master and a pupil.
“I thought I knew soccer,” Guindoan said. But when I joined Man City, it changed. After spending seven years with Guardiola, I can say now. I want to say that I didn’t know anything about soccer 바카라 before. Guardiola has had a tremendous impact on me,” he expressed his gratitude.
Guardiola added: “Guindoan has left. What can I say, I spent seven unbelievable years with him. There are no words to express my gratitude to him. He has a new challenge. I wish him well and I will support him.”
Guardiola added: “I tried to convince Gundogan to stay, I tried a lot. But I couldn’t. Everyone makes choices for their family. That’s life. Barcelona bought an amazing player. I wish Guindoan the best of luck.”
