Liverpool dropped him and Chelsea signed him; Guardiola opens up on Nkunku; Here is what he said.
Liverpool maybe did not see all that Chelsea saw in their new signing Christopher Nkunku and this is why they happened to drop the striker as Chelsea picked him and signed him.
Now Guardiola have condemned the idea of dropping the striker just like that calling it a foul play and Chelsea will reap the fruit of signing the top talent that Liverpool dropped.
Pep Guardiola has hailed Christopher Nkunku ahead of the RB Leipzig star joining Chelsea this summer.
City are back in Champions League action tonight as they host Leipzig in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 clash.
The first leg ended in a 1-1 draw in Germany, meaning City still have some work to do tonight.
Playing at the Etihad Stadium should be a boost, as should the absence of Leipzig superstar Christopher Nkunku.
The Frenchman made his return to action earlier this month after a lengthy injury lay-off, but immediately picked up another injury blow.
Nkunku will miss tonight’s game barring a miraculous recovery and Pep Guardiola is probably delighted with that.
City beat Leipzig 6-3 in the group stage of last season’s Champions League but Nkunku smashed a superb hat-trick in that game.
The former Paris Saint-Germain talent has been ridiculous in recent times; 17 goals and five assists this season as well as a staggering 35 goals and 20 assists last term.
Guardiola is clearly a big fan of Nkunku and has now hailed the 25-year-old despite his absence from tonight’s game.
