Barcelona’s Andres Iniesta admits they fear the strength and quality of Manchester City ahead of their UEFA Champions League clash in February.
The two teams will lock horns in the knockout stages of the competition and Iniesta insists that City are a tricky team to face, especial with a manager like Manual Pelegrini at the helm
“We know Manchester City and they are powerful, especially this season,” said Iniesta.
“To defeat the English, it is necessary that we are at our best.
“We have two hard matches.
“The danger against City is not only the physical power of English clubs but also the good touchline team with Pellegrini on the bench.
“But we respect the rivals and we are prepared to fight.”
Iniesta, though, goes on to add that they are still extremely confident heading into 2014 and plan on claiming all silverware on offer.
“Barca arrive in 2014 with a positive atmosphere,” added Iniesta.
“Now our objective is to follow this line that we maintained in 2013.
“Our aspiration is to obtain all the titles. This is our ambition. Barcelona want a perfect year and it is significant to win.”
