Legends of English football on Josko Gvardiol: He is been incredible

Although RB Leipzig suffered a disastrous defeat, their defender Josko Gvardiol continued to delight football fans. Former Manchester City player, Onuoha, believes that Gvardiol is a great player, and he put special emphasis on the first match.

"I think he's been incredible. And when you look at how young he is as well, this is why there is so much interest in him, [clubs want] to bring him to the Premier League now," said Onuoha, as quoted by eurosport.com
"I was also impressed with the goal he scored as well.

It felt like a very 'British-type' header at the back post, jumping on someone's shoulders to score." Onouha believes that Gvardiol was great in the first match. "I would not like to mark him from corners in the Premier League.

The way he plays, he's just on the front foot.
And with someone like Haaland, he's a fantastic player, but people aren't as good when you apply pressure to them. And I think in [the first leg], we saw that a lot. It was a very impressive performance."

Owen Hargreaves talks about Haaand

Owen Hargreaves also spoke about the first match in which Gvardiol was a tough opponent for Erling Haaland.

"Vital contribution in the first leg. Not just his goal but his defensive contribution. We haven't seen many defenders get the best of Erling Haaland, and he did that.
And it was just the fundamentals. I think defenders are recognised now for how good they are in possession and what they bring to the offensive side of the game, but first and foremost, you have to defend your goal."
Rio Ferdinand is delighted with the way the Croatian manages in 1 vs 1 situation.

"He was happy to have the battle. And that's the one thing I've been crying out for from centre-halves. I want to see people go up against [forwards], and say 'Alright, you and me, one v one, let's have it.' And he did that very well.
