“With all the things we know about City I would rather say the second, because they are too good.

“City are good. It was a massive blow for them, that was really harsh. I’ve had nights like that, it’s not cool, the next morning, not cool, but then there’s a moment you have to focus. They will be ready for Newcastle on Sunday.”

“When we lost that final, my favourite solution would have been to play the final again next year and it’s against Real Madrid,” the German said.

“That was in that moment. We faced Tottenham in Madrid. Madrid seems to be our destiny.

“It was strange and unlucky for City but what Madrid was outstanding. They got through against PSG, against Chelsea and against Man City.
