The Leicester midfielder spent more time than he cares to remember chasing Lionel Messi and Co around the pitch when he played for Sevilla against Pep Guardiola’s former club.
And he expects to be left feeling dizzy again tonight when he faces Guardiola’s current side in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.
Iborra said: “Playing City now is so similar to playing them. You play against them, run for 90 minutes and hardly touch the ball – it’s so difficult!
“If you draw against them you congratulate yourself on a good result because it’s so hard to beat a team if you hardly ever have the ball.
“The players are different and the league is different, but Pep’s philosophy hasn’t changed.
