Ilkay Gundogan almost back to best

Ilkay Gundogan

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan believes he is close to finding his best form.

Gundogan joined City in July 2016 but his debut was delayed after he suffered a dislocated kneecap earlier that year. The midfielder went on to make 16 appearances in the 2016-17 season but then sustained a serious knee ligament injury. However, the 27-year-old returned in September’s Premier League win over Watford and has featured 38 times for City across all competitions this season.

“I just think about now, about being part of the team, about training well and playing well, about doing what the manager and the staff want me to transport into the team, “said Gundogan.

“I have my own impact and during the last months, I was still on my way to my best. Now, I feel nearly or already there, and I am having fun and I’m happy,” he added.

Manchester City has already won the EFL Cup this season, are 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League table and have a Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool to look forward to.
