Pep Guardiola has explained where new Manchester City signing Matheus Nunes can improve, ahead of the midfielder’s potential debut for the club.
Nunes completed a £53m move to the Premier League champions on transfer deadline day and could make his first appearance for the club at West Ham this weekend.
Guardiola has been a long-term admirer of the Portugal international, who had a mixed first season at Wolves before his move to the Etihad.
The Spaniard has opened up on what he expects from Nunes this season and where the 25-year-old can improve his game.
“He can play holding midfielder or attacking midfielder and even at full-back,” Guardiola said at his pre-match press conference.
“He has to improve with his first touch, it’s not good enough yet. His energy is good and he played he last games with Wolves as a winger. He has so many qualities.
“He can dribble well and with time he’ll learn how to be more precise with his first touch. He will get it.”
