Pep Guardiola continues 'erre que erre'. Manchester City manager insists on prioritizing the conquest of the Premier over the Champions League and,
It should be remembered that City (90 points) and Liverpool (89) are playing for the League title on this last day. The ‘sky blues’ receive Aston Villa and Liverpool do the same with the ‘Wolves’. It would be the fourth Premier in five years for Guardiola’s men.
“The Premier League is more difficult [que la Champions]. There are many weeks, many games, many injuries, good and bad times, different situations… Success is having been there in recent years. Fighting for the Premier gives meaning to the day to day in the locker room,” The former Barcelona and Bayern player has insisted.
City, who last season lost the Champions League final against Chelsea (0-1), said goodbye this year in the semis against Real Madrid.
Guardiola, however, relativizes the success in the Old Continent: “I’m not saying that the Champions League isn’t important. We would have loved to be in Paris next week, but winning 38 games is different from winning 6/7.though it’s always nice.”

“We play to win, but there are aspects that you cannot control. We have to play like in the last month. It’s just one game, we’re not going to do anything new”, Guardiola concluded in reference to the ‘final’ against Aston Villa.
