LaLiga: I didn’t know anything about football until I met Guardiola – Gundogan

Barcelona midfielder, Ilkay Gündogan, has claimed he “didn’t know anything about football” before working with Pep Guardiola.

The 32-year-old left Guardiola’s Manchester City for Barca this month on a free transfer after seven seasons in the Premier League.

He won five league titles, two FA Cups, four League Cups and the Champions League during his time in Manchester, culminating in last season’s historic treble.

“Before I joined Man City, I thought I knew football,” Gündogan told ESPN on Monday.

“I was 25 or 26 years old, I’d seen a lot. I’d played a Champions League final.

“But now standing here after seven years of Pep’s school, I’d say I didn’t know anything about football before. His influence on the team and me personally was immense.”
