Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has aimed jibe at Borussia Dortmund ahead of their Champions League quarterfinal first-leg.
Dortmund travels to England to face Manchester City in the quarterfinals on Tuesday, with striker Erling Haaland set to start.
Guardiola said: “If one person knows in this city about Borussia Dortmund, it is me.
“I will not find one single player at Borussia Dortmund without quality.
“They spent a lot of money on young, young players and also pay a lot of money to the agents to bring these players there because they have an incredible quality.”
Guardiola, 50, added: “Maybe they have not found the consistency this season in the Bundesliga.
“But in one game or two games they are able to do anything. We saw that against Sevilla.
“Sevilla won three Europa Leagues in a row and last season again.
“You have to have respect for Dortmund and what they have done.
“I was in Germany for three years and they are big opponents.
“I saw the game against Frankfurt. We will try and be aggressive, win and travel to Dortmund to win the second game.
“This is the target and what we will try to do.”
