Although the whole itself skyblue knows what the subject is about, since in a report released by the Premier League recently, they themselves paid more than 35 million euros last year in commissions.
A Guardiola who recognized having studied the whole borusser. “I was in Germany for three years and they were always a great rival. I know the talent they have, not only Haaland, but also Sancho and Marco Reus and Dahoud and Hummels … I saw them the morning before our game (Borussia’s 2-1 loss to Eintracht) and I was impressed by their talent. When they can run, they kill you. We will try to be aggressive, “he concluded after City beat Leicester (0-2), demonstrating the high level they are at.
