Pep Guardiola says Manchester City could sack him for Champions League failure

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola

He is now considering success in the Champions League, with the very first leg of their last-16 connection with Real Madrid readied to be used February 26 at Santiago Bernabeu. I don't know [if that would happen]. New players, investment, more and more, and after they got them they are the best team in the world right now.

Having failed to win a trophy under Klopp for four years, Liverpool triumphed in the Champions League, Super Cup and Club World Cup last season - with more set to follow this year.

"Of course I want to be in the team that wins many trophies".

"I wish to win the ChampionsLeague I desire as well as will certainly appreciate preparing video games video games versus madrid, to see what we can do".

"Sometimes people believe if you are Pep, Jurgen, or you are another [big] name, you have to win all titles every season with 2000 million points and 2000 million goals".

"This process, these two weeks, are the happiest moments of my profession - looking at what we can do to beat them".

"That's why it is so hard to win it and in 100 and more seasons of history for Manchester City, it was 100 seasons of failure - that is not true", the City manager told Football Daily.

By contrast, emissions in the rest of the world rose by nearly 400 million tonnes past year , led by higher coal use in Asia. Emissions from Japan fell 4.3%, the most since 2009, as output from recently restarted nuclear reactors climbed.

Dejan Lovren is eyeing sustained success with Liverpool and wants the club to emulate Pep Guardiola's all-conquering Barcelona side.

"If we don't beat them, then the chairman will come, or the sporting director, and say "It's not good enough, we want the Champions League, I'm going to sack you".

'"OK", [I'd say], "Thank you, it was a pleasure". But Guardiola is adamant that the only way he will depart City before next season is if he is sacked.

Since moving to the Etihad, City have made it to the quarter-finals twice but were knocked out by English opposition twice, losing to Liverpool in 2018 and Tottenham last season. Guardiola has not won the competition since 2011, when he lifted the trophy for a second time with Barcelona.

Guardiola said this ahead of Man City's Premier League clash with West Ham United on Wednesday.

They face Aston Villa in the League Cup final on March 1, three days before an FA Cup fifth-round tie against Sheffield Wednesday.
