Thomas Muller reveals the hilarious threat issued by Pep Guardiola before extra time

We know that Pep Guardiola is a stickler for ball control but we didn't think he actually wanted to take them home with him.

For cynical fans who thought that the Bayern Munich manager's mind was already on Manchester City, wait until you hear how badly he wanted to make it to the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday night.

Bayern looked dead and buried after 70 minutes as they trailed 4-2 on aggregate against an energetic Juventus side.

But late goals from Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller rescued the tie and gave them hope in extra time.

And Muller has revealed the hilarious instructions given by an animated Guardiola on the sidelines before the thirty minutes of extra time got underway.

"He told us that he'd cut our balls off," Muller said, via Kicker.

"Of course, there are a lot of emotions. I wouldn't be any different as a coach.

"We wanted to play for the third goal, because we still had energy left in us."
