The Manchester city Coach Pep Guardiola the Barcelona legend said in one of his interview after defeating Newcastle away match with 3-4 win that Ferran Torres could be his No. 9 After Hat-Trick.
Pep Guardiola is pleased with the performance of the 21 years old winger from Valencia and he was use for a centre role.
He also added that the player Ferran Torres is a brilliant player and would be better for No. 9 role.
This is his first season in England and his numbers are exceptional in terms of goals,’ said Guardiola. ‘I may have to think about playing him as a striker. He can be a No.9. He is an alternative, he is brilliant.
‘The movement he creates as a striker, the runs in behind. His last goal – the ball hits the crossbar and where does it come?
He is there, Ferran has the smell, the striker’s nose, being intuitive to be there one second before the ball arrives. He has this talent and is a good finisher.’
Could this mean City are less inclined to go out and buy a striker to replace the outgoing Sergio Aguero this summer?
Maybe we buy a striker, maybe we don’t,’ said Guardiola. ‘But we have a guy who is young. I can use him left, right or as a striker.’
City twice came from behind to record a 12th straight away win, three days after being confirm as champions.
And Guardiola said: ‘We made mistake because we are champions and the players were distract a little bit, this is normal. But the spirit was absolutely there.’
