Man City manager Guardiola: It was a process for Liverpool

Man City manager Guardiola: It was a process for Liverpool”

Now on the Premier League standings, Manchester City are 22 points behind leaders Liverpool and the Reds have even been tipped to be crowned champions.

City face Real in the first leg of their Round of 16 tie at the Bernabeu on February 26 with the return match on March 17.

City have struggled in the Champions League, their best finish coming in Manuel Pellegrini's final season in charge, before Guardiola took over, when they lost to eventual winners Real Madrid in the semi-finals. "It has happened many times and could maybe happen".

"I want to win the Champions League", Guardiola told Sky Sports while arguing that failing to win the competition doesn't necessarily mean a failed season for City.

"And this process, the two weeks before, will be the happiest moments of my profession, to imagine what we can do to beat them".

"If we don't beat them, OK, come the chairman or the sport director and say, 'It's not good enough, we want the Champions League, I'm going to sack you'. Then 'OK, thank you, it was a pleasure'".

Although Guardiola appeared to be speaking with tongue in cheek, he did reiterate that it is a possibility his job could be under threat if they crash out of the Champions League early on again. I don't know [if this would happen].

"We played really well this season", he claimed. I never felt I am the best, never in my life. That is the process.

"Liverpool spent four or five years to win their first trophy last season", he included. New gamers, financial investment, an increasing number of, as well as after they obtained them they are the best group in the globe now.

'Sometimes it's not possible.

"Sometimes it's not possible, sometimes because of the opposition, sometimes you can not do it".

"We give a bad, bad message for the new generation, for our kids, to just count the victor, the trophies to win".

Last season, expectation was high when Manchester City got to the quarterfinal of the Champions League, but they were sent out of the championship by fellow Premier League rivals Tottenham.
