Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says his legacy is exceptional as he prepares for today’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Real Madrid.
Guardiola made this statement at his pre-match press conference. While stressing how important the game is, he said his legacy is exceptional already, saying that it is a dream come true to be at this stage with one game away to win the Premier League and in semi-final of the Champions League, but urged the players to play much better than the Madrid away game.
Recall that treble-chasing City, who have never been European champions, drew 1-1 at the Bernabeu in last Tuesday’s first leg.
Guardiola has won two Champions Leagues as a manager, with Barcelona in 2009 and 2011. City has never lost at home in the Champions League for five years running and have won all 14 games on home soil in 2023.
The winners of the game will face Inter Milan in Istanbul on Saturday, 10 June, after the Italian side beat fierce rivals AC Milan 3-0 on aggregate to reach the final for the first time in 13 years.
