Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has warned Bayern Munich ahead of their upcoming Champions League opponents Liverpool, stating the club can create 'fire' at Anfield ahead of the last 16 clash.
Gundogan previously plied his trade for Bayern's fierce rivals Borussia Dortmund, and has told the club they should be wary of the threat Liverpool possess, knowing all too well from his recent visits there as a City player.
Since joining City in 2016, Gundogan has been unsuccessful at Anfield in four attempts, with his side conceding eight goals in the process, including being eliminated in the Champions League quarter finals 5-1 on aggregate by the Reds last year. Speaking to SportBild, Gundogan has issued a warning signal to his former rivals, claiming they should be wary ahead their upcoming trip to Merseyside on 19 February.
"I know how hard it is to play in Liverpool. So I honestly see Liverpool a bit ahead of Bayern," he said.
