Cancelo: 'Walker above and beyond'

Joao Cancelo thanked Kyle Walker for “going above and beyond for the team” by taking the gloves in a 1-1 draw with Atalanta, but felt Manchester City were hard done by.

With Ederson injured in the first half and Claudio Bravo sent off for taking down Josip Ilicic, Walker had to go in goal.

“Going in goal is not my speciality! Kyle Walker showed a great attitude and he really went above and beyond for the team,” Cancelo told Sky Sport Italia.

“It was a difficult moment, we needed someone to step up and Kyle did very well. After seeing the VAR, I think it’s impossible that the red card was given, because he didn’t touch Ilicic at all. This is not fair.

“It was a deserved point, we are top of the group, have two games left and will try to do our best.”

After his experiences in Serie A, how is Joao Cancelo finding his first season at Manchester City?

“I am learning a lot with this coach, who I feel is the best in the world. I came here to work with Pep Guardiola and become the best.”
