Speaking after his side booked their place in the Champions League final with an emphatic 4-0 second-leg win over Real Madrid on Wednesday, Guardiola said: “It’s non-stop. The most difficult thing [is coming]. Tennis players say [serving] to win Wimbledon is the most difficult one. On Sunday, the game is in our hands.”

“The Premier League is the most important competition because it’s over 10-11 months. We are lucky to finish at home with our people to take it. The last one is the most difficult because there are a lot of emotions. We would not forgive ourselves if we became distracted. Now, we know, we have three games to win the title. Every game we win helps the next one. We cannot forget the reality, of what happened against (Manchester) United and (Aston) Villa in the past. Football is emotion, in the moment. If we can win at home, we have to do it.”

“As a manager, I feel part of something. I never think it belongs to me – I’m part of it. [Success is not possible] without the incredible work from the sporting director, board… [and] the players are the most important thing.”

Cityzens cast off the demons of 2022 to beat Los Blancos 4-0 during Man City vs Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League semifinal at the Etihad on Wednesday night in a dominant display by the Premier League leaders. City — losers to Madrid in dramatic fashion in last year’s UCL semis — will now advance to the final for only the second time under Guardiola, whose side fell 1-0 to Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea in 2021.
