What did Pep Guardiola have to say about Oleksandr Zinchenko’s exit from the club?
In a press conference, Guardiola stated that Zinchenko was able to bid farewell to the rest of the City squad.
” Zinchenko, like Gabriel [Jesus] and Raheem [Sterling], the impact of these three players has been massive, incredible people and exceptional players, they move on.”
“Chelsea and Arsenal are incredible clubs, I’m happy for the success they’ll have there.”
“It was nice yesterday with Oleks because we could say bye properly. Unfortunately with Raheem and Gabriel we could not do it because it was the summer time, but with Oleks we had dinner together, we could say bye to him and move on to Arsenal.”
City are set to make a great profit from the selling of Zinchenko.
He was signed by City from Russian club FC Ulfa for a fee of £1.8m back in 2016.
