Joao Cancelo shocked everyone when he announced that he would be leaving Manchester City to go on loan to Bayern Munich but has now revealed why.

The Portuguese left-back has been one of the best in his position not just in the Premier League but in the world over the past two seasons.

That’s why it was such a shock when it was announced that he would be leaving the club and moving to Bayern Munich on loan until the end of the season. Losing a player of his quality when your side is involved in a tight title race seems like madness but Pep Guardiola was set in his ways.

Many speculated about what happened between the player and manager with many thinking that they had a falling out.

But in a recent interview, Cancelo revealed the truth.

‘As I already said, he found a way to play, after the World Cup, in which he started playing with a full-back more inside, where I also played, and he liked what he saw with Rico [Lewis] and Nathan [Ake],’ said the Portuguese star, according to O Jogo.

‘But I think a player is always a bit selfish. Any player wants to feel important, wants to play and anyone who says otherwise is lying. A competitive player, like me, who aspires to win titles, just wants to play.

‘It’s not a question of devaluing my team-mates. But I thought I deserved to play and he didn’t.

‘So we talked, it was a conversation, not a discussion, and we decided that the best thing would be for me to leave this market. An opportunity I couldn’t refuse. It was by mutual agreement.

‘If City didn’t want to, they wouldn’t let me leave, because I had a contract. I’m very professional, I’ve always given my face for all the clubs. I have a difficult personality, yes, but I have never, at any time, disrespected team-mates or coaches.’
