[Txiki Begiristain explains why Man City signed Rodri for club record fee] He works hard defensively, makes himself available to receive the ball and uses it well when in possession. He is a perfect fit for Pep Guardiola’s team and we are confident he will be a success

[Txiki Begiristain explains what Man City need for Champions League challenge] We have to keep being strong in our country and if we do that, we know we will have a chance in this competition. It is important to be ourselves when we play and keep doing things our way. We have to keep fighting and if we do all that, we will be close. We have shown we can win trophies and win the Premier League and we just have to be ourselves – in the Champions League, everything has to be perfect because if you have one mistake in the quarter-finals, you are out. So, it is important to keep playing the way we believe, keep things tight and keep fighting.

[Man City director of football Txiki Begiristain hints at Claudio Bravo plans] We need a little time to confirm what we are seeing. We must remember that he’s been injured for a year and this is not seen in one or two months. After that time, we will make a joint decision, which depends on the two parties, because this is our decision and then his, but I want to make it clear that there is nothing settled. To this day, we are delighted with him. He’s preparing for the future. He could have gone to another club to play every game. Here he is taking all experience, collecting everything he has lived, especially in Barcelona and Manchester, to become a great manager

City director Txiki Begiristain is viewing the tie as an opportunity for his club to prove their pedigree] It’s a difficult one, of course. Real Madrid have won [the competition] 13 times, so they’re the best. We want to be the best, so we want to beat them. It is always a pleasure to go to Real Madrid and play in a big stadium like the Santiago Bernabeu
