‘We don’t have the history of their shirt’ says Pep Guardiola
Pep says , the citizens are 10 years behind to closing the gap with rivals Manchester United
Pep Guardiola believes Manchester City are 10 years away from closing the gap on bitter rivals Manchester United.
The Citizens have won several honours since 2010 including two Premier League titles and two League Cups and are looking to add more to their trophy cabinet under Guardiola this season. However, the Catalan insists it is qualifying for the Champions League every season over the next decade which remains the key to City catching United.
In quotes reported by the Daily Mirror, Guardiola said: “We don’t have the history with this shirt, of Barcelona, Juventus, (Bayern) Munich or Manchester United. Not their titles. It’s about being in Europe and over the next decade to be there [in the Champions League] every year. That’s more important to this club than winning one title, believe me, more than that.”
I would say the comment was rather inappropriate as the citizens are struggling a little bit at the moment and comments like that will affect the team as fans morale down
