Pep Guardiola, who has an excellent record with Manchester City, has failed to make a mark with the club in the European competition.
In an interview with Sky Sports, Pep Guardiola admitted that he wants to lift the Champions League title with Manchester City. He said that he would spend the next two weeks planning how to beat Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid. He said that he would enjoy the process.

It seems unlikely that Manchester City will sack Pep Guardiola considering his incredible record at the club. Guardiola’s side became the first team to win the domestic treble in England. They won the Premier League, FA Cup and the Carabao Cup last season. Currently, in his fourth season at the Etihad Stadium, the former Barcelona manager has won two Premier League titles, two League Cup titles and one FA Cup title. However, stranger things have happened in the world of football. It won’t be a surprise if Manchester City part ways with Pep Guardiola.
