Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said at the press conference after the match against Bournemouth: "Thank you for the contribution of the Youth Academy. Delap will stay in the first team temporarily."
"Physically, he is different from our previous shooter. We saw in training what a terminator he was. Now he must remain calm and continue to work hard."
"We are happy with his performance, his performance is very good."
"The current situation is that there are only 13 players in the first team. We need players from the youth academy, and not just for training courses."
"Given the problems we face, Delap will stay with us. We will use him, but we must not forget that we should talk less about him as we talked about Foden in previous seasons.
"He is only 17 years old and he still has many things to improve. They need their own time. We cannot predict the performance of every young player, but like Foden, Garcia and Doyle, Delap and Palmer Also an excellent player."
"Congratulations to all the youth academy, congratulations to discover these players and the coaches of the youth academy."
"Finally, I came to complete this task. I took the last step, but before that, there were a lot of players waiting. Wilcox is now the leader of the Youth Academy and he helped us have these players. ."
"I originally planned not to let Rodri and Walker play for 90 minutes. But unfortunately, Bernabé was injured and Walker had to play for 90 minutes."
"We can't forget the number of games, but Walker's physical fitness is very good, so I know it is not important to him, because he is our captain, he also helped the young boys, which is very important to us. Walker has reached the highest level at the beginning of the season."
