Man City boss Guardiola a fan of Gasperini and Atalanta

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admits he's a fan of Champions League opponents Atalanta.

City host Gian Piero Gasperini's Atalanta on Tuesday night.

“What I said about (Maurizio) Sarri I could say about Gasperini, I was lucky enough to meet him before," said Guardiola.

“Having seen what Atalanta did last year and what they're doing this season is incredible.

“It's a great joy to watch his team play, they're brave, they respect their supporters. The way they play is unusual, they take quite a few risks.

“In this match both teams are very brave, and they will try to impose the game, we will have to adapt and they will do the same.

“I hope it will be an open match, both teams score and concede. I hope it will be a lively match."
