Guardiola singles out Man City star for praise after Basel rout



Pep Guardiola reserved special praise for Ilkay Gundogan after Manchester City’s 4-0 Champions League win over Basel.
The German scored twice in the rout as City all but secured their place in the next round, and Guardiola says he’s happy to have the former Borussia Dortmund man back in his side again after injury.
“Ilkay Gundogan is an extraordinary player,” he told BT Sport. “Last season we missed him a lot with an injury for six months and that’s why we are so satisfied, not just the quality but personality to play.
On the game itself, Guardiola added: “An excellent result. We are almost in the quarter-finals. Champions League is always 180 minutes and we will take the game seriously but it’s an excellent result. “We are still in February and in the Premier League we are in an amazing position and we are almost in the quarter-finals, we are in one final (EFL Cup) and on Monday we have the opportunity to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. Game by game.”
