Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola has predicted a big future for two of Dinamo Zagreb’s youngsters after his side came away with a 2-0 victory at Maksimir stadium last night in the UEFA Champions League…
Speaking to the press after the match, Guardiola, who was happy with his own sides performance, said that he was certain both Ante Ćorić and Marko Pjaca were destined for big careers.
“I want to pay my players a big compliment for their fight and performance, they showed their quality. I know that Dinamo have a very young side, and I think Ćorić and Pjaca are exceptional talents and they will definitely have big careers,” said the former Barcelona boss.
Dinamo far from embarrassed themselves last night against arguably one of the world’s best clubs, and even could have gone into the break ahead.
“I was not too worried after the half finished goalless, but in the dressing room I told my players I was looking for a goal from them,” said Pep.
It was Robert Lewandowski who answered the half time call, scoring two goals within minutes midway through the second spell.
Dinamo Zagreb finished their UEFA Champions League campaign with 3 points, a memorable opening night victory over Arsenal in Zagreb.
