Pep Guardiola has praised ‘incredible’ Javi Gracia ahead of Manchester City’s clash with Watford this weekend.
City host Gracia’s side in Saturday’s evening kick off, with Guardiola having been left impressed by his compatriot’s success at Vicarage Road so far this season.
Watford currently sit in eight position, behind Wolves only on goal difference, and will have one eye on qualifying for Europe with seventh place potentially securing Europa League football next season.
The visitor’s impressive season has not gone unnoticed by Guardiola, with the City boss full of praise for The Hornets and boss Gracia.
“They have everything, incredibly organised, the manager is incredible what he has done this season so far they achieve a lot of points,” Guardiola told his pre-match press conference.
“It’s the last game before 21 days without Premier League and of course everything is close, a few games until the end of the Premier League it’s massively important to take our points.”
