Champions League: Pep Guardiola speaks on Man City winning the trophy for second time

Pep Guardfola speaks on Manchester City comimg out top in the Champions League this season



Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, has challenged his side to achieve something special in the Champions League this season.

The Spaniard wants his side to win back-to-back Champions League titles following their success last season.

Manchester City won the Champions League, FA Cup and Premier League last season 

They will begin their first game of the Champions League season at home against Red Star Belgrade.

Guadiola, who addressed the press ahead of the game, said, “I’d like to say that for our club to win the Champions League is incredible – the first time in our history – but, in perspective, how many teams have won the Champions League once?

“A lot have won two, three, four, five. In perspective, we did nothing special. It’s just one.

“Let’s go. Let’s try to win tomorrow against a team so aggressive, so fast up front.

“It’s most difficult to win the first one. But every season we start the competition in the first game with the target to win the first game, then the group stage, then try to win the Champions League. Nothing changes from before.

“The same for Red Star tomorrow. It depends on our performance and our level.

“We’re incredibly happy to defend this crown but this competition doesn’t allow you to make mistakes.

“But we were always so strong at home, nine points from nine. When that happens you can win just one game away and you qualify. Tomorrow is the first step.”
