But still He chooses to praise James, his friend and rival who he has been fighting since he was 8 years old, as his toughest opponent.

“It is a Premier League tournament. When I was about 13 or 14 years old, every year we would play City in the final,” said the 23-year-old defender. “At that time

I played as a midfielder. Therefore had the opportunity to fight with him in the middle of the field. He was the same then as he is now. Really difficult to deal with. He played the same way. But he’s grown and gotten better as a player. That’s why he came to City. One of the best clubs.”
