Chilwell reveals Guardiola compliment and advice amid rumoured Man City interest

Ben Chilwell has revealed the compliment he received from Pep Guardiola amid reports the Manchester City boss is interested in taking the Leicester full-back to the Etihad this summer.

City are believed to be interested in signing a left-back this summer as they look to strengthen their squad, following Benjamin Mendy’s continued struggles with injury.

Chilwell was involved in a conversation with the Spaniard following Leicester’s 1-0 defeat to the champions last month, with the 22-year-old revealing Guardiola’s compliments which are sure to increase transfer speculation surrounding the England international.

“Pep said he thought I was a really ­talented player and he wanted me to keep playing well, getting up and down the pitch and never going away from it.

“It was nice for such a ­successful manager to say I’m a good player. I’m at Leicester and with Brendan coming in we’re all loving him being there and that’s obviously where my head’s at.”
