Gundogan eager to work alongside 'impressive personality' Guardiola at Man City

Manchester City new boy Ilkay Gundogan is looking forward to working with the club's new manager Pep Guardiola.

The 25-year-old German midfielder, who recently arrived at Etihad Stadium from Borussia Dortmund, claimed that the Spanish manager has an 'impressive personality' and played a huge role in his decision to join the club.

He told Sky Sports: "Even when I got my injury, Pep said it changed nothing for him and he still wanted me to join, so for me that was a big sign that I was doing the right thing.

"I'm really excited. If you see what is going on today [at the weekender], I think the whole City is excited to have such a great manager here.

"He was a big reason I joined. I spoke to him a few times and he gave me such a good feeling. I know him from Germany and saw him in Barcelona.

"He's really impressive personality and it's a big chance for me to work with him."
