“I am well aware that I am not a finished player yet”
“The club has completed the signing of Josko Gvardiol,” Manchester City announced on its official website on Friday.
The Croatian center-back has been one of the best defenders in the tournament after a stellar showing at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. He started and played every game from the group stage to the quarterfinals against Argentina and the third-place game against Morocco.
Gvardiol’s stellar performance was so impressive that FIFA said during the tournament, “He may have traveled to the World Cup wearing a mask, but he is now returning home with a recognizable face and name.”
After returning from injury and unmasking, Gvardiol’s success continued with his club Leipzig. In the 2022-2023 season, he made 41 official appearances for the club, serving as their first-choice defender. This led to a number of clubs monitoring his situation, including Chelsea, Liverpool, and Real Madrid.
City were the most active in the summer transfer window. After a drawn-out courtship, City landed the player, who will wear the number 24 shirt and has a five-year contract.
“I’ve always dreamed of playing in England,” he said. “It’s a great honor to join City after their incredible season,” he said.
He added: “Anyone who watched City play last season will know that they are a top team. To win the treble speaks volumes about the quality of this team. To join a team like this is very special for me and my family.”카지노
Gbadiol is a young center back born in 2002. He is one year younger than international midfielder Lee Kang-in (22), who recently joined Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
“To have the opportunity to play with Pep Guardiola is a surprise even for me. I am well aware that I am not a finished player and I am confident that I can improve under the best coach in the world.”
