UEFA Champions League – Gundogan to Kimmich: “I don’t have to put up with everything”

The mistake came from friend Leroy Sane, but it was the subsequent poke by Joshua Kimmich that angered Ilkay G√ľndogan. “You don’t have to put up with everything either,” said the Manchester City captain of the rift between two internationals in the Champions League quarter-final second leg at Bayern Munich (1-1).

Gundogan and Kimmich clashed in first half injury time – both saw yellow cards. “I’m more of a calm guy, of course, but if I had a feeling a procedure was unnecessary, I could show it. This time I hit Josh,” said the 32-year-old, emphasizing: “But we’re both professionals enough to properly assess the situation.” good “.

“It wasn’t absolutely necessary, after the referee had already whistled the situation, that he kicked the ball twice more, and then it fell to me,” Gundogan explained. That’s all there is to it, “things like this happen on the field.”

Gundogan are looking forward to the semi-finals against defending champions Real Madrid, something City failed to achieve last year. He said, “We’re looking forward to the duel, it’s gigantic. It’s always a special game against Real Madrid. It’s going to be very difficult.”

City’s trump card: “Tormunster” Erling Haaland, who scored against Bayern in the second and second leg. “His quality brings another dimension to our game that can be beneficial to any team,” said Gundogan.
