Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has criticised Manchester City’s spending following comments made by Pep Guardiola regarding the amounts the Bundesliga club have paid out in agent fees.
City face Dortmund in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday night, with Guardiola having previously claimed that the Germans “pay a lot of money” to agents to secure top young talent.
Reacting to those comments, Watzke has pointed the finger at City’s spending in recent years, which has seen the Premier League leaders assemble a squad considered one of the strongest in Europe.
In advance of the first leg of the last-eight tie, that City won 2-1 at Eithad Stadium, Guardiola told reporters: “If one person knows in Manchester about Borussia Dortmund it is me. The culture of this club, the way they play and I will not find one single player from Borussia Dortmund without quality.
Jadon Sancho will not be taking in a Champions League reunion with Manchester City as the Borussia Dortmund winger is not yet fit enough to return to competitive action.
The England international has missed a month’s worth of action for club and country after picking up an untimely thigh injury.
Positive progress has been made in his recovery, with a return to training taken in, but a meeting with his former club on Wednesday has come too soon.
