Pep Guardiola said the defender “deserves the best” after John Stones turned in a star display in a 4-0 rout of Crystal Palace.
John Stones “deserves the best”, according to Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.
Stones scored twice, his first Premier League goals for City, and put in an accomplished display at the back in a 4-0 demolition of Crystal Palace on Sunday.
“If it’s one guy who deserves the best, it’s John. He struggled a lot but he is a fantastic human being, his parents must be so proud,” Guardiola told a news conference.
“He had personal problems and injuries in the past but at the moment he is settled well. Confidence is everything and he is confident for himself.
“Managers cannot give confidence but he started playing alongside Ruben and they play really well.”
