Pep Guardiola (Manchester City coach): “I did not compare Ferran Torres to Jamie Vardy, I said that Ferran had quite similar trips. Ferran has to eat a lot of soup to be compared to Vardy and what he’s been up to in his career. Vardy is 33, 34 years old (34 years old to be precise), Ferran is 21, 22 (he is 21 years old).

For Ferran, this is just the beginning and Vardy has done incredible, exceptional things. I am a huge fan of Jamie Vardy as a striker. I said that because Vardy loves to make calls in the back, normally the scorers don’t like it too much. Ferran also likes to make these trips. This is the only point on which I insisted ten days ago. “
