Joao Cancelo Refuses Pep Guardiola’s Statement about the Champions League

By db-admin –  According to Manchester City wing-back, Joao Cancelo, City is one of the teams that have the chance to win titles in Europe this season. This statement contradicts Pep Guardiola’s opinion about The Cityzens opportunities in the Champions League.

In the eyes of Guardiola, Manchester City does not deserve to be a European champion. “People say our target is the Champions League. However, we are still not ready, “Pep Guardiola was quoted as saying on the Soccerway website.

This was apparently not felt by Joao Cancelo. Being a Champions League winner was one of the reasons why Cancelo accepted City’s proposal in the transfer market last summer.

“I came here to win the Champions League. Juventus actually also have the same ambition. However, Manchester City has a style of play that suits me better, “Cancelo stated as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

“Manchester City is one of the teams that can win the Champions League this season. I think that is not in doubt. The same can also be said for Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid, “Cancelo added. Cancelo’s optimism seems to have a basis. As The Cityzens has managed to start their work in the Champions League this season with two wins over Dinamo Zagreb and Shakhtar Donetsk. Soon they will try to continue the positive trend when hosting Atalanta at the Etihad Stadium.
