PEP GUARDIOLA congratulated golfer Tommy Fleetwood after he clinched Europe’s Ryder Cup triumph in Rome.
Fleetwood, 32, claimed the winning point for Luke Donald’s men by defeating American Rickie Fowler in one of the final singles matches of the afternoon.
Team Europe ended up sealing a 16.5-11.5 victory over Zach Johnson’s star-studded side.
And Manchester City boss Guardiola, who played alongside Fleetwood in a pro-am competition in 2018, was one of the first to congratulate the Southport-born match-winner.
Speaking on Instagram, the Spaniard said: “You deserve this Ryder Cup more than anyone else.
“You are an incredible guy and as everyone knows an exceptional golfer. Love you.
“Congratulations Europe to get the back.”
Europe’s convincing triumph over the Americans was retribution for their 19-9 drubbing at Whistling Straits three years ago.
And Fleetwood was over the moon when he was interviewed after the win.
He told Sky Sports: “I’m just so happy to be a part in it, it was a bit bigger than I thought I was going to have when we saw the draw, but I’m just so proud of being a part of this team.

“We’ve done what we came here to do. We have an amazing group of people, we always do.
“This year’s obviously been different, the landscape has changed a little bit for team Europe, I couldn’t wish for a better group of people to do this with.
“It’s been so amazing an everyone is so great. We are just one gigantic family.
“Relief, pride joy, I’m just proud to be one of the people that gets to play a role in what we came here to do.”
