Marco Verratti: I am flattered by Guardiola's praise

PSG's Marco Verratti has voiced his happiness at Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola's compliments.

Guardiola expressed his "passion" for the 28-year-old Italian after he impressed for PSG in their 2-0 Champions League triumph over the Citizens last month, calling him an "amazing" player.

Verratti has subsequently responded, expressing his delight at receiving such praise from such a well-known football authority as Guardiola.

"These are certainly words that please me. He is a person who understands football, who is good for football, and one of those who gives us pleasure with football. So, yes, I am happy," Verratti told France Info.

Verratti also spoke about his future with PSG, saying: "I have a little time left. What I do know is that I will always stay here."

"I had the chance to play with and against great champions, in great matches, that's what I wanted above all. I fell in love with this club and that's why I always try to give the maximum, to return the confidence that I have been given."

Verratti has featured in 350 games for PSG in all competitions, earning 27 domestic trophies, including seven Ligue 1 crowns.
