Pep Guardiola failed to achieve the club’s dream of a European title during their six years in England.


A little about the topic

The Spanish manager says he was not hired by Man City for the sole purpose of winning the Champions League. City were within walking distance of reaching a second successive Champions League final as they had a 5-3 aggregate lead against Real Madrid in Wednesday’s semi-final. But a late brace from Rodrygo sent the tie into extra time before Benzema converted the penalty to send the Spanish side through to the final.


What did Pep Guardiola say?

Man City, who lost to Chelsea in the final last year, is determined to claim the European trophy – but Pep says his job doesn’t depend on winning the competition. Pep Guardiola revealed that they lost the Champions League last season. It was 13 games. They won 11, drew one and lost one. If they lost the Champions League, would it have been a bad Champions League season? According to Guardiola, absolutely not. This season they were again in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

They want to win the Champions League, of course. But when they called him, they didn’t say that they should win the Champions League. Not even PL. They said they wanted to be competitive in all competitions to the end, be a team that their fans love to watch and win as many games as possible in all competitions. That’s why they knocked on his door to come here. And they did it.

There is no doubt that in all competitions they did it. The people who play against them know they are good. They run, they fight and they push their opponent to the limit. This is when the club becomes solid. A club you can rely on. Pep Guardiola says sponsors, fans, people who want to follow them when they turn on the TV and want to watch Manchester City. The honesty of these players and this team has been quite remarkable over the years.
