Man City loanee Yangel Herrera desperate to finally get his chance under Pep Guardiola after impressing at Granada

YANGEL HERRERA says it is his dream to play under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

The Venezuelan midfield ace, 23, is on loan at Granada from the Premier League leaders.

Herrera trained with City at the end of 2018 and is hopeful he will get a proper chance under Guardiola.

Granada tonight head to Manchester United in their Europa League quarter-final second leg.

Herrera told SunSport: “Being with Pep was a masterclass.

"It helped me see that one day I should have my place there.

“I didn’t feel weird in that dressing room. I was surrounded by great footballers.

“I work to achieve something like that. I don’t know if Pep’s the best in the world but he needs to be on the podium.

"Anybody can see what he’s brought to football.

“They are very aware of each game I play in LaLiga and in the Europa League."


Herrera continued: "I don’t have direct contact but they talk regularly to my agent.

“I’ve been in Spain for two years playing at a good level and I’m willing to face any challenge.

“Now is the time to focus as today’s work will reward me in the future.”

Herrera’s immediate task is to help his Spanish underdogs overturn a 2-0 deficit at Old Trafford.

He added: “We’re the small team and people like those challenges.

"This is David vs Goliath.”
