Manchester City’s next-generation right-back Rico Lewis is set to re-sign.
The British Express said on the 5th (Korean time): “Man City will reward Luis’ rise to stardom with a new contract. Manager Pep Guardiola is ready to show Luis how much he values him with a 400% salary increase. ” reported토토사이트.
Lewis is the next right-back that Manchester City are looking forward to. It is a man city sacred bone youth. He joined Man City Youth in 2011 and achieved steady growth. He raised expectations by being named on the pre-season US tour ahead of the 2022-23 season.
He immediately caught Guardiola’s eye. Lewis fulfilled his dream of making his professional debut this season as a substitute against Bournemouth in the second round of the English Premier League (EPL). Since then, he has been active in the cup competition and has grown into a key resource at once. In particular, he emerged as the core of the team by participating in 5 of the 6 EPL matches played after the World Cup break.
It’s hard to believe that he’s only 18 years old. Lewis is a right-back with good attack power based on his speed. He has good foot skills and shows a bold look as if he was from Manchester City youth. He also has a good understanding of tactics, so he smoothly plays the role of an inverted wingback directed by Guardiola.
The defensive side is also compliant. Lewis started last month against Tottenham Hotspur. Lewis’ mission was Tottenham’s main counterattack route, ‘blocking Son Heung-min’. Guardiola said, “Because the games he played were really good. He read the position and chose it. I know it’s a big responsibility to play with Son Heung-min, Dejan Kulusevski and Harry Kane.”
Guardiola’s choice was right. Lewis contributed to the team’s victory by playing an active role in both offense and defense as a right-back. In particular, he played a big role in tying Son Heung-min tight. Due to this performance, he is getting more playing time than Kyle Walker, who was the team’s main lightback. He is emerging as an undisputed right-back, pushing out João Cancelo as well.
Man City also bought a high potential. We plan to extend the contract period of Lewis through a renewal. The media said, “Lewis plans to raise his weekly wage from £5,000 (about 7.5 million won) to £25,000 (about 38 million won) with a five-year contract extension.”
