Gvardiol Finding Form with Goal-Scoring Streak, Says Guardiola

Gvardiol's Resurgence

Manchester City’s Josko Gvardiol has emerged from early struggles to become a pivotal figure in the title race, according to Pep Guardiola. The Croatian defender, who initially faced challenges settling in at the Premier League giants, has found his confidence through a remarkable goal-scoring spree.

Guardiola, addressing reporters following Saturday’s dominant 4-0 victory over Fulham, acknowledged Gvardiol’s transformation. The 22-year-old, signed from RB Leipzig last summer for a reported fee of 90 million euros, endured a slow start to his City career but has since ignited, scoring five goals in his last seven appearances.

Reflecting on Gvardiol’s journey, Guardiola emphasized the importance of confidence, especially in a demanding league like the Premier League. “It’s his first season here, and joining a team fresh off a treble win can be daunting,” Guardiola remarked. “But he’s shown tremendous character and resilience, proving to himself and everyone else that he belongs here.”

City, currently trailing Arsenal by a single point, face a crucial clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday as they continue their pursuit of a historic fourth consecutive title.
