Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is no stranger to Everton boss Ronald Koeman in fact the two coaches were Barcelona teammates once upon a time.
Guardiola revealed in his pre-match press conference that he learned a lot from Koeman and that he was one of the first central defenders he saw that had the ability to do more than defend.
The Everton social media team shared a clip of Guardiola praising the Koeman on the official club twitter account.
