The Bavarians will play the UCL quarter-finals’ standout tie against Manchester City.
Joshua Kimmich is happy to reunite with former manager Pep Guardiola as Bayern Munich face Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Kimmich joined the Bavarians from Stuttgart in 2015, breaking into the senior squad under Guardiola. Since then, the German star has become a cornerstone of Bayern and Mannschaft’s midfield lines.
Guardiola will reunite with his former Bayern players when City take on the Bavarians in the UCL quarter-finals in April.
Reacting to the draw, Kimmich told Bayern’s media: “It’s definitely one of the most difficult draws.
“Nevertheless, we are self-confident and I’m personally happy to play against Pep Guardiola after such a long time. Every football fan will look forward to these two games because two top teams will meet.
“City have very good individual players paired with a good coach who has a good plan. They have consistently played at the highest level for years.
“We are also a team with many good individuals. But we have already shown that we work very well as a team and that we also have a top coach. It will be a balanced tie.”
Bayern finished the group stage above Inter and Barcelona before eliminating Paris Saint-Germain in the last-16 round.
In case the Bavarians defeat City in the next round, they will meet the winner of Chelsea’s tie with Real Madrid in the semi-finals.
