The Manchester City manager says Real Madrid have more experience in the Champions League and says he dreamed of playing with Zidane.

Guardiola says Real Madrid are the kings of the Champions League after drawing them in the last 16 of the competition.

Guardiola on Real Madrid in the Champions League: “It’s an incredible test for us. [Real Madrid are] the kings of this competition. We will prepare as best as possible in the two months and try to play a good two games.”

On playing the likes of Real Madrid: “It’s positive because we are in the best 16 teams in Europe and that is good news. People think it is not enough, of course it is not enough, every team will want to go through and do better.


On Zidane: “I dreamed of playing with him as a player at Juventus when I left Barcelona but at the end it didn’t happen. I didn’t speak much with him. Three or four times.

“But my first impression is that he’s an incredible person to handle to pressure of incredible clubs like Madrid. I admire him and it’s really good this type of person is in football and it will be a pleasure to see him again.”
