The 5-foot-10 defender also has proven to be a threat at the other end this season, scoring five goals in all competitions - including the victor as City defeated rivals Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford last month amid a record-breaking run of 18 successive league victories.

"I think that nowadays, for the way I have improved, I'm in a really good moment. I am very happy to be playing this kind of football".

Meanwhile, manager Pep Guardiola hit out at detractors for focusing on the money they have spent when other clubs have splurged the same but, have not managed to bring in the quantity of players they have. Since he got here I've learned a lot and I'm still learning as I said before and I'm trying to enjoy it.
