Within our sporting life it is always about challenges. Hes just one in front of him to demonstrate how good hes in each and every game.
He came as an unbelievable player and he is still an excellent player. Hes physically powerful, quickly and weve tried to help him to be a much better player.
He is a player who will do everything, but the national team boss has his view and he created a selection.
Kyle respects it and I respect it. Gareth does exactly that which he does for the best of the national team.
When asked about Cancelo, Guardiola included:In the game against Preston he chose forward and the previous game was really great too.
He arrived late, maybe not throughout the pre-season, so he was not there when we are working on things and he needed a little more time.
