Man City keeper Claudio Bravo in no hurry to leave after penalty heroics

LEICESTER -- Claudio Bravo has said he is no rush to leave Manchester City despite losing his place as first-choice goalkeeper.

Bravo made only his third start of the season in Tuesday's Carabao Cup victory at Leicester City after losing his place to summer signing Ederson.

But the Chile international, who helped City to win on penalties, told reporters: "I have things super clear. Things have come out in articles or whatnot, but life is not just football, there are a lot of other things [like] my family.

"We're delighted the kids are learning the language, speaking it perfectly. These are things that the family value, too, regardless of if I am playing or not.

"I think we have to keep things calm, keep working hard and have patience [and stay] relaxed. I am not going to go crazy -- like I say, there are things much more important than football."

Bravo's starts this season have all come in the Carabao Cup and he should be guaranteed two more after City reached the two-legged semifinals.

The 34-year-old saved Riyad Mahrez' penalty in the shootout to confirm the win and has now won his last six shootouts with City and his national team.

"For me I wouldn't say I enjoyed it because it wasn't what we'd hoped or worked for," he added.

"It took a big effort, the game was long, lots of tension and things were complicated, but really happy to get through with a team with different players, with really young players who played really well. We're happy to get through to the next round.

"At the end I had the fortune to come out the hero, but that's part of work and what we do in the week.

"It's not easy when you're not playing and you have to play in this game when [the opponent] attacks, makes things hard and the game's long, with tension -- it's not easy."

Bravo did not have the easiest of times with City supporters in a difficult first year at the club but he dashed over to the travelling fans to celebrate and was given a warm hug from by Pep Guardiola after his heroics.

"It's nice because you're not competing regularly, you have a large game like this and inside you feel like you've saved the situation with the fact you made the penalty save," he said.

"I think it was fundamental but like I told you I was relaxed, doing things well and prepared for when it was my turn to play.

"It is what it is. He [Guardiola] was also grateful for the two penalties that were missed which helped the team, but there's nothing else to say."
