Cancelo: I left Man City with mutual agreement
Cancelo: I left Man City with mutual agreement

Manchester City on loan star Joao Cancelo has admitted he has a challenging personality.

The Portuguese international was sent out on loan by City boss Pep Guardiola this winter.

Cancelo is currently with German giants Bayern Munich until the end of this season.

“As I already said, he found a way to play, after the World Cup, in which he started playing with a full-back more inside, where I also played, and he liked what he saw with Rico [Lewis] and Nathan [Ake],” Cancelo said, per O Jogo.

“But I think a player is always a bit selfish. Any player wants to feel important, wants to play and anyone who says otherwise is lying. A competitive player, like me, who aspires to win titles, just wants to play.

“It’s not a question of devaluing my team-mates. But I thought I deserved to play and he didn’t.

“So we talked, it was a conversation, not a discussion, and we decided that the best thing would be for me to leave this market. An opportunity I couldn’t refuse. It was by mutual agreement.

“If City didn’t want to, they wouldn’t let me leave, because I had a contract. I’m very professional, I’ve always given my face for all the clubs. I have a difficult personality, yes, but I have never, at any time, disrespected team-mates or coaches.”
