Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola has declared his state of mind, as such that is filled with fear as his team takes on Schalke 04 in the second leg of the UEFA Champions league at Ethiad Stadium .
Guardiola speaking at a press conference today said “this time last week, Manchester City was anticipating a last eight of the Champions League including Real Madrid and Paris St-Germain, neither of them made it through.”
“A week ago we didn’t expect PSG would happen or Real Madrid,” he said.
“Real Madrid have been four times winners in five years, and the last three in a row. That is incredible. They were the favourites in my eyes.
“But anyone who thinks it will be easy because they are not there is wrong. The teams in the next round will be quite similar to the level of Real Madrid.”
Schalke 04 lost to Manchester city in Germany 2-3 going into tomorrow’s match.
