EPL: I can play as goalkeeper for Guardiola - Ilkay Gundogan

EPL: I can play as goalkeeper for Guardiola - Ilkay Gundogan (Updated: 1 year ago)


Manchester City midfielder, Ilkay Gundogan has declared that he would be happy to play as a goalkeeper or a fullback if manager, Pep Guardiola so desires.

Gundogan has been playing in a more advanced role for Manchester City this season from where he has been scoring goals.

Manchester City secured a 4-0 victory on aggregate against Borussia Monchengladbach to cruise into the last-eight with Kevin De Bruyne and Gundogan on the scoresheet on Tuesday.

City now join Real Madrid, Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund and Porto in the quarter-finals line-up.

Gundogan’s goal was his 15th for Manchester City this season in all competitions and after the match, Guardiola was left ‘delighted’ with the Germany international’s latest contribution.

The midfielder said that he’s merely doing his job and would have no complaints at filling any position on the pitch.

Quizzed by Sky Sports on whether he could operate as a striker in a City system that often favours a ‘false nine’, Gundogan said: “If I have to, I am ready.

“It does not matter where my manager wants me to play. If I have to go in goal or play left-back or right-back, I will try to do my best, I will try to see what is demanded, what the manager expects from me, and try to do the best possible job.”
