Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has explained his adventure in the Premier League will probably be judged as unsuccessful should City fail to win the Champions League title
After wrapping up two Champions League trophies with Barcelona, the Spaniard has joined Bayern Munich, where he won three Bundesliga crowns but has never managed to reach the CL final.
Speaking of his experience at the Allianz Arena, Guardiola has stated: “I was judged in Munich in that way so I will be judged here as well.”

“My period in Munich was not good for most people because we didn’t get one final.”
“We got semi-finals, but we didn’t get a final, and we were judged. So I’m a lucky guy. My standards are high. I have to reach it.”
The 48-year-old led the Citizens to the Premier League title last season, but the fans are desperate to see their idols getting to the top of Europe.
Guardiola has taken time to explain his view of the criticism regarding City’s Champions League disappointments.
“If we do not win the Champions League, our work for three seasons, every three days, is a failure or a disaster. I completely do not agree but what can I say? Accept it and move on.”
