Guardiola feels obliged to win the Champions League

By db-admin

DBasia.news –  Pep Guardiola feels he will be considered a failure as coach at Manchester City if he does not win the Champions League trophy. The former Barcelona coach has won five main trophies since arriving at City in 2016, including the English League titles in 2017-18 and 2018-19. However, success in European most elite competition has so far escaped the grip of Guardiola.

“Last year was amazing for us, but people said, ‘But you didn’t win the Champions League’,” he said.

“That is why I will be judged if we did not win it in my last period here, I failed. I know that.”

City has not made it past the Champions League quarter-finals under Guardiola, knocked out by Monaco, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur in the last three seasons. On Sunday, Guardiola’s team will travel to the Spurs headquarters for the first time since the defeat in the first leg of the Champions League last eight.
