Pep Guardiola describes Bristol City’s Alex Scott as ‘an unbelievable player’

Manchester City defeated Bristol City 3-0 in the fifth round of FA Cup to advance through to the quarter-finals of the competition.

Pep Guardiola was full of praise for the highly talented Bristol City midfielder Alex Scott who has attracted big interest from Premier league clubs.

The Spaniard described Scott as “an unbelievable player” following Tuesday night’s fixture.

Bristol City value the 19-year-old between “at least £20-25m” according to Fabrizio Romano following an impressive season for the Robins.

Scott has made 81 appearances for Bristol City and the Guernsey-born midfielder has been capped 12 times for the England Under-19s.

Bristol City’s run of 12 games unbeaten came to an end versus the current Premier League Champions but Nigel Pearson’s side will be fully focused on their play-off charge.

Bristol City sit 13th in the Championship, 10 points adrift from Luton Town in sixth with a game in hand.

Pearson said, via Bristol Live: “There is potential for us to push for a play-off position but you can’t blow hot and cold.”
