Hundreds of fans will gather at Zayed Sports City at the official Manchester City Fanzone event to watch the Sky Blues play Chelsea in one of the Premier League’s most eagerly anticipated games so far this season.
Ahead of the crunch tie, Pep said: “I have had the pleasure to visit Abu Dhabi to enjoy the wonderful hospitality and share the people’s incredible passion for football.
“The great thing about football is that it is a universal language. It can bring people together the excitement and interest around the game in the region is not different to anywhere else. Standards are constantly rising in the Middle East and the fans are knowledgeable and respectful. I always enjoy my time there.
“Since joining the club I have had a fantastic reception from everyone, the fans, the staff and players have been amazing and it is clear that everyone here is working hard for success. The facilities are great and I am enjoying this season for sure.”
