Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has admitted that he wants to see Bayern Munich knock Liverpool out of the Champions League tonight.
There will be at least three English teams in the quarter-finals of the Champions League since 2011 after City comprehensively defeated Schalke last night at the Etihad, scoring seven goals to make it 10-2 on aggregate.
Jurgen Klopp’s side can become the fourth team to progress if they beat or get a score draw against the German giants at the Allianz Arena tonight.
Guardiola, however, would rather see his former club go through rather than the Reds.
“I’m sorry for the English people but I want Bayern to go through,” Guardiola said, as quoted by Metro. “I am part of this club. I love Munich. I love Bayern. I have a lot of friends there.
“They gave me the opportunity to be their manager for three years. I would like Bayern to go through but it will not be easy.
“It’s such a demanding game for both. I like Bayern and hopefully they can go through.”
