Pep Guardiola full of praise for “exceptional” Real Madrid star stating Man City need to “control him”

CAUGHT OFFSIDE 

Man City host Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie on Wednesday and speaking ahead of that clash, Pep Guardiola has been full of praise for the “exceptional ” Jude Bellingham. 

The two teams will meet at the Etihad Stadium with the tie level at 3-3 following last week’s thrilling clash at the Bernabeu.

Bellingham didn’t have his best game for the La Liga side that night but overall the Englishman’s move to Spain has been a major success.

Man City were one club in the running to sign the midfielder last summer with Guardiola reportedly to have had a three-hour conversation with the 20-year-old to convince him to join the Premier League champions.

That did not work as Bellingham opted for Real Madrid but that did not stop the Man City boss from speaking highly of the player ahead of their meeting on Wednesday.
