Pep: Madrid one of the best

Bayern Munich Coach Pep Guardiola has claimed that Real Madrid are ‘one of the best teams in the world’.

The German champions have been drawn against Los Blancos in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

And despite the difficulty of the challenge ahead, the former Barcelona boss is confident that his men can make it to the final.

“I’m happy, the whole of Europe will be following these two matches closely,” he told a Press conference.

“I know how difficult it will be. Together with Borussia Dortmund, they’re one of the best counter-attacking teams you can face. I like playing at the Bernabeu. It’s a magnificent setting.”

“I enjoy taking on the best players and the best Coaches in the world. Coming up against one of the best teams in the world will be a big test for us.

“I know Real Madrid very well, I’ve faced them on a number of occasions both as a player and as a coach. But I believe in my team.”
