The 25-year-old enjoyed a successful debut season in Germany under Guardiola and hopes his ‘magic’ former boss is a hit at City.
“You cannot compare Pep to any Brazilian coach,” he added.
“If you put all Brazilian coaches together, you would get Pep. One has motivational skills, another is tactically strong. But Pep has it all.
“Pep has the magic touch. He breathes football. He still played himself quite recently.
“Pep always keeps inventing new things. He is magic. I hope he can win the Champions League with City.”
