Manchester City full-back Joao Cancelo has revealed he’s looking ahead to the new season as Manchester City defend our Premier League crown.

“The truth is that I already missed football (over the summer),” said Joao.

“I cannot go long periods without playing football! I love playing football.

“It is the thing I like to do the most. For me, it is always good to come back, and even more if it is at this club, Manchester City, which has given me so many positive things.

“Obviously, now we have an extra responsibility because we must keep this title, which is the Premier League.

“In the last five years we have won four of them. I think the expectations are upon us. I think that is good for the responsibility that we must have.”
