Josep Guardiola also understands that the fans of Manchester City, have more value to the Premier League than the Champions League. The Spanish manager is hoping, however, that he and his team is that as fast as possible be able to change it.
“I know that the fans of the Premier League, it is best to find. They would prefer to see a third title in a row, that is, for the first time in the Champions League and win it. That’s the reality of it,” said Guardiola on Monday at a press conference in the run-up to the thuisduel with Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday.
“Manchester City are not in Champions League history, and the fans are so involved. Our supporters have stayed at home or went out to the bars to get to Liverpool or Manchester United, to see where this tournament will be in the culture there. We need our fans to show just how important the Champions League is.”
Since the take-over of Manchester City in 2008 and the subsequent league titles in 2012 and 2014 and said the clubleiding several times the ambition to be in the Champions League to win it, but the ‘Citizens’ were there, ever since, has always been a close second in the area.

“Well, We’ll have to try it, and it would be great if it works. If you are not, then we’ll try it again next year. Winning the Champions League would be a logical next step, but it is not always the case.”
