EPL: He reminds me of Bergkamp – Carragher names player that should win Goal of the Season
Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher, has named Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan as the player that should win the Premier League Goal of the Season.
Carragher believes Gundogan’s first goal against Everton on Sunday is the best goal in the Premier League this season.
According to him, the Germany international reminds him of Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp.
Gundogan struck in the first half of Man City’s 3-0 win against Everton at Goodison Park in what was an impressive finish as he brought down winger Riyad Mahrez’s cross with his thigh before poking past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
The win over Everton set Manchester City on their way to win the Premier League title, with Pep Guardiola’s men now needing a maximum of just one more victory to clinch their third title in a row.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Carragher said of Gundogan, “He is had a fantastic career.
“He was a special player at Dortmund, and he is a special player at City. The goal we are looking at now I think is goal of the season.”
“It reminded me of something Bergkamp did. That’s a goal we will remember for a long time,” he said.
Gundogan joined Man City from Borussia Dortmund back in 2016.
