Pep Guardiola makes admission about Champions League exit

Tottenham Hotspur knocked Manchester City out of the Champions League in a most bizarre fashion to make into the semi finals.

Tottenham Hotspur knocked Manchester City out of the Champions League in a most bizarre fashion to make into the semi finals.

An immense drama unfolded at the helm of Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night as Tottenham prevails into the Semi-finals of UEFA Champions League thanks to the VAR ruling out Sterling’s injury-time strike.

Manchester City’s quest for quadruple has come to a bitter end and now it’s time to get back onto the drawing board. Pep Guardiola has admitted Manchester City players are hurting from the Champions League. He said,

“I qualify for the first final of the Champions League [with Barcelona in 2009] with just one shot on target and maybe we didn’t deserve it. Then there’s been others when I think we deserve it. 

We have to live with these situations, accept them. Inside it hurts, it will be on our minds but looking backward will not help us to move forward. 

“It was a tough night but the day after, stand up and move forward. These players have the opportunity to show they can do that. 

They will get back what they deserve, this season or next season or three or four years. 

“One day they will be in the same position and they’ll be fortunate, luckier, more precise or whatever and go to the next stages.”

”they will get what they deserve”.

Manchester City would be back to the Premier League action on Saturday as early kick off against Spurs awaits. It will be their third outing against The North London side in the space of 11 days. The Champions are two points adrift of Livepool but do have a game on hand.

While, Liverpool travels to Cardiff City on Sunday and would be looking to put pace at the top.

Author’s Take:

Manchester City’s Champions League woes have continued but still they found themselves in good position to clinch successive PL titles. However, they have some fixtures coming up and would need to be determined as Liverpool would not be looking to drop some points in the coming fixtures.
