Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola claims he knows Borussia Dortmund’s threats better than anyone.
Guardiola’s City face another huge test in their quest for a historic quadruple when they host Edin Terzic’s fifth-placed Bundesliga side in tonight’s Champions League quarterfinal first leg at the Etihad Stadium.
And two-time European Cup-winning coach Guardiola warns they can’t just worry about the competition’s leading goalscorer this season, Erling Haaland, who will be looking to add to his 10 strikes to date.
The Catalan also highlights the threat of former City youngster Jadon Sancho and defender Mat Hummels, who he coached during their time together at Bayern Munich.
Guardiola says: “If one person in Manchester knows Borussia Dortmund, it is me.
“I will not find one single player at their club who is without quality. They have incredible quality.
“Over one or two games, they are able to do anything. I have incredible respect for what Dortmund have done. I know their quality.
“It’s not just [Erling] Haaland of course, but Jadon Sancho, Marco Reus, Mo Dahoud, and [Mats] Hummels... I’m really impressed with the quality he has.
“When they can run, they kill you. The quality is there.
“We will try to be aggressive and try to win this game, then try to win the second game.”
City go into the clash having beaten Leicester 2-0 on Saturday to move 14 points clear at the top of the Premier League, thanks to goals from Benjamin Mendy and Gabriel Jesus.
