Despite Joao Cancelo’s outstanding start to the Premier League season, Pep Guardiola will continue to want more from him.
The Portuguese has excelled at left-back, with his forward and midfield movements giving a dimension to the champions’ game that few opponents can replicate.
The 27-year-old former Juventus defender was brought in primarily as a right-back in 2019, although he demonstrated his versatility by playing on the opposite flank on many occasions last season.
Due to a lack of choices this season, Cancelo has been forced to play on the left, and with Kyle Walker manning the right side of defense, he has excelled in the role.
“Of course he’s playing really well, consistent,” said City boss Guardiola. “Especially with his physicality, he can recover really fast and well during the games. He can play every three days without any problem.
“But, at the same time, I have the feeling he can do better. Still there are margins to improve in some aspects that we have been working on with him since he arrived.
