The Jupiler Pro League had to say goodbye to various trendsetters in recent months. Perhaps the most impressive transition was that of Sergio Gomez. After barely one year at Anderlecht, the Spaniard decorated a dream transfer to the English champions Manchester City.
It was initially assumed that City would sign the wing-back as a longer-term asset and even loan him out first. But Pep Guardiola and co were so convinced of his qualities that Gomez immediately got his chance at the A-core of the English superpower. And now he already has two raids to his name.
That number of playing minutes will only increase now that European football is added to the schedule. According to Jose Rojo Martin, his ex-coach at Huesca, Gomez will become a sensation. “I am very happy for him and know that he will excel at City. Sergio is an elite player, he can become the best left-back in global football,” he said. The Sun.
With his attacking style of play, Gomez already fits in with the City of his compatriot Guardiola. And according to Martin, he can also be a great help to top acquisition Erling Haaland. “With Haaland, City has finally bought a typical number 9, but he needs a good supply. With Sergio’s crosses, he will only score more,” predicts the Spanish coach.
