‘He finally admitted it’, ‘This is our season’ – Man City fans react as Guardiola makes Champions League admission


Pep Guardiola has admitted that his time in charge of Manchester City will not be complete if the Blues don’t win the Champions League.

Guardiola signed a contract extension during the break for the World Cup which will keep him at the Etihad Stadium until 2025.

He has won nine domestic trophies since arriving in 2016 but said the target during his next two-and-a-half years is the Champions League.

“It’s not the only one, but I admit that’s the trophy that we want. Of course, it wouldn’t be complete my period here if we don’t win,” he said.

“It’s not the only reason I extend my contract. Absolutely not. I couldn’t live, what it means the last 11 months they don’t play the Champions League. Of course, I will do everything in this time we are together and we are going to try, but we try before.

“Of course, it’s the trophy we don’t have and we try to do it. I have the feeling this club, with the people who lead, sooner or later will get it. We tried in the past, the first season in the last-16 we are out. We tried with all our strength and power. Of course, we will try it.”

These Guardiola’s comments were shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.
