When asked if he was surprised by the Dortmund press, Guardiola told DAZN: “No, not surprised because I faced them when I was at Bayern Munich and they played five at the back.

“The rest of them play that system and the quality of [Mahmoud] Dahoud, Bellingham and, of course, the pace of the people up front – the quality is there. We know it was.

“But when you want to press they play long balls. They play long balls to Haaland – Haaland is a b*stard. Link-up [play] is always perfect and they have the pace so we knew it was not easy to control them.”
