Dortmund ease past Man City in Champions Cup opener

Pep Guardiola hoping to find a solution for ‘professional’ Joe Hart

Joe Hart, the former England keeper, was making his first City appearance since August 2016 but it was opposite number Hitz who was nearly beaten on 55 minutes when another Mahrez set-piece flew just past the post.

"Today everyone watches the Premier League so I have watched plenty of it in my time", Jorginho said on the Chelsea website.

Hart is looking for a permanent move away from the Etihad Stadium, after successive season-long loans at Torino and West Ham, but the City boss has been impressed by his attitude.

'So it is important that English football has received an exceptional player and at the end if they want to come, it's better they come.

First team stars such as Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany, Ederson, David Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling, Kyle Walker and John Stones have not made the journey to compete in the annual International Champions Cup pre-season tournament with most not expected back until a week before the start of the domestic season in England.

Mahrez debuted in Chicago on Friday after completing a club-record £60million transfer from Leicester City earlier this month.

City boss, Pep Guardiola, has recently said that he is seeking a solution for Hart's situation and that he would be happy for him to stay at the club if an alternative can not be found. We have solutions. We have Fernandinho, Ilkay Gundogan, Aleks (Zinchenko) can play in that position. We tried but my advice always is that players should go where they want.

Guardiola told the club's official website after the game: "We did many good things".

The 26-year-old added: "Since I was little I was someone who always enjoyed challenges". I know it is not easy for him, what happened in the last period. "The courage, intensity and desire to play was very good".

Guardiola also said of City winger Leroy Sane being left out of Germany's World Cup squad: "Maybe this decision will make him stronger".

While Dortmund are favourites due to be further ahead in their pre-season preparations, the narrow victory over Austria Wien does not suggest they are yet at their free-flowing best. What we've seen from him here... the impression is so good'.
