Schubert: Guardiola one of the best in the world

André Schubert has not been shy in his praise of Manchester City ahead of the two sides’ clash in the Champions League group stage opener.

Schubert also touched on his team news and the match itself against the Premier League leaders.

“We will give the best possible account of ourselves and will enjoy facing off against some of the best. We know that we need to give our all against a team with real quality.”

“Manchester City’s start to the season speaks for itself. They have a good chance of being champions this year. In Pep Guardiola they have one of the best managers in the world. [These compliments] show appreciation. We have played some good games against him.”

“Patrick Hermann’s injury is a tough blow to take. He was in our plans. But otherwise we have all the players that have been involved in recent weeks available.”
