    Pep Guardiola

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is looking forward to his personal return to Germany, although he did so in a summer friendly after moving to England from Bayern Munich in June.

    "I am really happy because I had a really great time and my family had a great time," he said.

  3. Wenger targets 'statement' victory

    Arsenal v Paris St-Germain (19:45 GMT)

    Arsene Wenger has urged Arsenal to send a statement out to their European rivals with a victory over French champions Paris St-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday.

    Wenger, whose team have been eliminated at the last-16 stage for the past six seasons, said the competition was more open this year, citing Manchester City's 3-1 defeat of Barcelona in the last round of fixtures as an example.

    "When you play at home against a big team, you want to win. It sends a statement out. We are ready to compete. We saw Man City winning against Barcelona. We have an opportunity to show it against Paris St-Germain.

    "Let's finish first and at least we have the advantage to play the second game at home. I feel guilty when we finish second and have a difficult tie."

  4. We have no fear - Rodgers

    Celtic v Barcelona (19:45 GMT)

    Brendan Rodgers

    Celtic's 2-1 Champions League success against Barca in Glasgow in 2012 "shows that it can be done", according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

    Rodgers' side lost 7-0 at the Nou Camp in September, but Rodgers said has side "have no fire" ahead of tonight's game at Celtic Park.

    "What it shows is that it can be done," Rodgers said of the exploits of Neil Lennon's side in 2012.

    "There are many variables that go into it. You need a bit of luck along the way, you need to play at the top of your game, you need your goalkeeper to play well because you know he'll have to make saves and you hope you can take the opportunities that come your way.

    "We've no fear of the result. We want to perform well and if we do that in our pressing, our recovery of the ball and being clinical in the final third, then we believe we have a chance."

    GeorgeWilliamBrooks: Ipswich 6-4 Crewe, probably 2003/2004, I think. Shefki Kuqi was a beast.

    Alex Winterton: Hard to forget Leicester - Man U 2014. Leicester 3-1 down after 60 mins. Vardy with 4 (FOUR) assists and a goal to finish 5-3.

    Liz Tray: None more insane than the 2012 MCFC/QPR. Darkness, weeping... Agueroooooooooooo! More weeping. It'll never be like that again.

  6. Who said Brits weren't good at languages?

    Celtic v Barcelona (19:45 GMT)

    Regardless, this video of schoolchildren in Glasgow singing in Spanish is excellent entertainment.

  13. On this day...

    Football

    You may remember when then-Southampton manager Graeme Souness was duped by a man claiming to be the cousin of a former world footballer of the year. 

    Ali Dia had persuaded his agent to ring the former Liverpool and Rangers boss and pretend he was George Weah ringing about his relative, who just happened to be a highly talented striker he was representing. 

    The agent claimed Dia had played 13 internationals for Senegal and that Weah was certain he would succeed in the Premiership. Souness' curosity got the better of him and he gave Dia a one-month contract. 

    But the painful truth emerged about his real identity when Dia was introduced from the bench against Leeds on this day in 1996.

    His performance was so diabolical that Souness had to take the substitute off after just 53 painful minutes.
