Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus admitted that a ‘sensational’ Manchester City side deserved to progress to the Champions League semi-finals. The Citizens beat their German rivals with a 2-1 score in Germany on Wednesday. While Reus is understandably disappointed to drop out with the final insight, the 31-year-old Germany international was at least gracious in defeat.
“We performed very well until the penalty (scored by Mahrez). Man City obviously had the better chances. After they scored the penalty, we didn’t really have a clear idea,” the Dortmund captain admitted.
“We were simply too wild. City have sensational positional play, whereby they just make you run. Then it becomes difficult to get on the ball. City were better and more intelligent today. We have to acknowledge that unbegrudgingly.”
Manchester City will now face Paris Saint-Germain in the semi-finals, with the first leg due to take place in the French capital later this month.
