Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed he likes what he has seen from Jack Grealish in the build-up to the 2022-23 campaign.

The England international provided the assist for Erling Haaland’s goal in the 1-0 victory over Bayern Munich.

“He arrived sharp with a good mentality — aggressive,” Guardiola said. “He played a really good game.”

Guardiola also praised the poacher’s instinct of Manchester City forward Erling Haaland.

“He scored a goal, which is important,” Guardiola said after the victory over Bayern Munich. “These type of goals in front of keeper — always he’s there.

“The first minutes, he needs more rhythm and time, but already he had 45 minutes which is good for him.

“We’ll see how he reacts to the niggles that he had in the previous weeks. He made just four, five training sessions; he needs weeks, After we come back, we have long weeks to prepare every weekend game. In those two or three weeks we will get the best form.”
