Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola pointed to the staying power of City after the English giants staged a stunning late fightback to overcome Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) on Wednesday.
Newsbreak.ng reports that strikes from John Stones and Erling Haaland saw City come from behind to beat Dortmund.
Jude Bellingham’s close-range header early in the second half looked like it could be the difference on a generally frustrating night for Guardiola’s men.
But Stones’ impressive drive with ten minutes to play, followed by an acrobatic finish from Haaland, turned the game on its head in the space of four second half minutes.
Speaking after the match, Guardiola said: “We changed the rhythm a bit, part of it was the players but also I would say because we were 1-0 down, it was important for us.
“The first years that I was here we never came back. We were not a team with this ability to come back but we do now,
“I don’t know what happened, West Ham it started (last season), then Aston Villa when we were champions, Newcastle, Crystal Palace, today.
“We can now create momentum, of course Julian (Alvarez) helps with another player in the box and Kevin on the right to make crosses from that position.
“It wasn’t easy to come back, they defended well over the 90 minutes.”
