Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has branded Sam Edozie an "incredible young player", with the attacker impressing for the Citizens during their preparations for the 2021-22 campaign.

The 18-year-old has scored in each of his side's three pre-season matches this summer against Preston North End, Barnsley and Blackpool.

Edozie was named in the starting XI against Blackpool on Tuesday night and needed just three minutes to find the back of the net.

Guardiola has lavished praise on the winger but has insisted that he will need time to develop into a potential regular first-team player for the Premier League champions.

"As a young talent, having a special quality, a guy who gets to the box with intention to score a goal - it's so important for wingers," Guardiola told the club's official website.

"He's an incredible young player with good pace. But we have to be patient with him. He had minutes and played good and this is important."

Edozie joined Man City from Millwall in July 2019 and made the step up from the club's Under-18s to the Under-23s for the 2020-21 campaign. body check tags ::
