Dani Olmo has backed now-former RB Leipzig teammate and close friend Josko Gvardiol to become a roaring success at Manchester City.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the Spanish international gave his two cents on the 21-year as well as his move to Pep Guardiola’s side.

Unsurprisingly, Dani Olmo believes Josko Gvardiol is an incredible prospect and has all the tools to set the world alight at Manchester City.

Dani Olmo guarantees that Josko Gvardiol will become world-class at Manchester City

It was reported on Friday that even the Chelsea staff believe that the Croatian international is one of the three best young defenders in the world.

Described as ‘unreal’ by GiveMeSport, the youngster is widely considered as a special talent.

Now, Dani Olmo has addressed all things Josko Gvardiol after his summer move to Manchester City.

“I really miss him for sure. I was really close with him. I wish him all the best. Josko is a world-class player, for me, there is no doubt. He developed a lot, also the amazing World Cup he played, and he’s only 21.”

Dani Olmo continued to laud Manchester City new-boy Josko Gvardiol, saying, “He still has a lot to learn and improve, and this says a lot about him because at this age, he’s already like this but [he] can improve a lot. He’s going to be world-class and I’m really sure he’s going to make a good step in the City team.”

Josko Gvardiol is destined for greatness

Going by the assessment from Dani Olmo, it seems like Manchester City will only witness the two-time DFB-Pokal winner get better and better.

What separates the highly-rated wonderkid from the rest of his agemates is that be it as a pure defender, in possession or even physically, he is in a league of his own in terms of every single trait.

Under Pep Guardiola’s tutelage moving forward, Josko Gvardiol is only likely to be heading to the top.
