Message from the Champions League of Guardiola to the critics of the city
Pep Guardiola is more interested in how Manchester City fans remember their team than the critics have to say.
While the current Premier League champion has been second to none on the pitch, it has been a blunt month for the club with a number of allegations mostly about the Fair Play Financial.
The coach of the city is looking to do what no one else in the club has done before and win the Champions League with Manuel Pellegrini reaching the semifinals in 2016. Guardiola will receive a reminder of his rare flaws at Etihad against Lyon; The referee of the night was in charge of the victory by 3 to 1 of the Monaco in 2017, that defeated the Blues in the last phase.
A UEFA Europa League quarter-final loss to Liverpool in April left a bad injury in an almost flawless season in the domestic market, leaving a competition that City still wants.
Guardiola clearly wants to win the tournament, but given the amount of luck he needs to win, he does not think fans will lose the trophy when they are regularly watching great performances from players.
