FC Barcelona & Manchester United Stars Named Among Manchester City Stalwart's Toughest Opponents
A Manchester City stalwart has named an FC Barcelona star and a Manchester United striker among the toughest opponents he has faced.
Citizens defender Nicolas Otamendi has been in good form under club manager Pep Guardiola this season, and has contributed with some vital goals too.
During an exclusive interview recently, the Argentine was asked which attackers were the toughest he had faced in his career so far.
"There are many," Otamendi told Marca.
"Luis Suarez is a striker who is constantly moving, making diagonal runs, creating space, then you always have to be prepared to run.
"Then (Romelu) Lukaku is another very strong player, technically good, quick... It's between those two."
The 30-year-old will come up against Lukaku when City take on United on 7 April at 6.30pm at the Etihad.
