Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has said he has yet to watch Manchester United play as the two teams prepare to meet at Old Trafford on Sept. 10.
Both Manchester clubs go into the game having won all three of their league games this season.
And looking ahead to the game, Guardiola — who will resume his rivalry with United boss Jose Mourinho — told reporters: “Still I didn’t see Manchester United playing, so now I have 10 days to see United, Borussia Monchehgladbach and other teams.
“We have to make an amazing performance to win at Old Trafford. I can imagine the atmosphere. I am looking forward to living that experience.
“Hopefully, they [City’s players] come back with no injuries and in a good mood and we can do it.”
Guardiola indicated that he might have been happier to play United before the international break rather than having to wait.
He said: “If we should play [United] in three or four days, OK, we go there. But now we [City’s players] go to the national team. We never know what is going on.”
