Pep Guardiola sends transfer request to Manchester City leadership following crucial Everton win

Man City cruised to a 3-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park, led by Ilkay Gundogan.

Pep Guardiola has asked Ilkay Gundogan to stay at Manchester City next season after his captain’s outstanding performance has put the champions within touching distance of a second Premier League title. City won 3-0 at Everton thanks to two goals from Gundogan and an assist from Erling Haaland, highlighting his value to the club as his contract expires at the end of the season.

Manchester City’s manager has instructed the club’s hierarchy to do everything possible to keep him. “No one knows what will happen; perhaps he will stay.” “Hopefully,” Guardiola replied.

“He shows again, again and again his quality and his commitment to all of us at the club. It’s not just scoring goals, he can do everything. 

“He doesn’t talk much but when he talks, everyone listens. This is the power of a leader and he is a guy who handles the pressure really, really well. He has his momentum because against Leeds, he was the player and again today.

“It was a brilliant performance from us at the end of a season today. From minute one we took the game in our hands.”

Guardiola was embroiled in a post-match brawl with Yerry Mina after addressing the Colombian defender after his side inflicted a club record tenth home league defeat of the season on relegation-threatened Everton.

Guardiola did not explain on his reasoning, although defender Aymeric Laporte claimed Mina pinched him in the first half. “What he does every game isn’t required. “I told him, ‘You are a good enough player to avoid these kinds of things,'” Guardiola explained.

“He is aware. Inquire with him. This is not a physical or mental condition. There are some things he does that are unnecessary. This time, Aymeric, Jack (Grealish), and everyone.” 

Everton boss Sean Dyche was left in the dark after the game. “He didn’t say anything to me,” Dyche remarked. “I wasn’t aware of anything.”

Dyche was more concerned with striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s injury, which forced him off at halftime.

“I had to make a call because he felt his groin and tight groins can lead to damaged groins. He wanted to carry on but I said: ‘Dom, you are coming off,” said Dyche.
