Pep Guardiola on...
Dani grew up in the Barca academy and it took personality and courage to take the difficult step of joining Dynamo Zagreb. He did a lot more growing up there and now he plays for Leipzig, who have been among the three best teams in Germany in recent years. He’s also playing for Spain’s national team, which is not easy at all, and he made a big difference for them at the EUROs.
Playing against Leipzig is always complicated, as we have seen through their philosophy in previous seasons: They have young players, who are dynamic, physical and strong, they play direct football and they play narrow in all senses.
