Angelino has laughed off suggestions that Joao Cancelo has been a flop at Manchester City and suggested that he needs more regular game time to show his quality.

Cancelo arrived from Juventus last summer for £60m, with Danilo going the other way for £34m in a deal that was related but not technically linked. The Portugal international aimed to put pressure on Kyle Walker and establish himself as the No.1 right-back at the Etihad.

However, Cancelo has struggled to adapt while Walker has maintained a high level of performance and manager Pep Guardiola did little to play down speculation that the former Juventus defender could leave as early as the January window. Game time has continued to be an issue, with Cancelo left out of the squad for the Carabao Cup final altogether after only making the bench against Real Madrid earlier in that week.

Angelino, who is waiting to discover whether he will spend next season with Manchester City or RB Leipzig where he is currently on loan, came to the defence of his fellow defender after a fan suggested on his Instagram account that Cancelo had been a flop.

"Cancelo a flop? Seriously?" he wrote. "He was the best RB in Italy for a reason...some players need to play constantly to perform good."

City's left-back sparked some confusion when he told RB Leipzig teammates he would see them after the holidays, but is expected to return for their Champions League campaign. The Bundesliga club are in the quarter-finals after knocking out Jose Mourinho's Tottenham in the last-16.
