“We want to try to win it, of course. It’s an honor to be here against one of the best teams in the world like Bayern Munich. The question about winning the Champions League comes up every season and I understand it.”
“It’s something we try every year, but we play against great teams and everyone wants to win it. My dream is to win all the titles, but just because you’re going to try doesn’t mean you’ll get it,” Guardiola explained at a press conference.
“Michael Jordan won six rings in the NBA, but how many seasons did he play? 16,” added the Spanish coach, who also highlighted the importance of having Erling Haaland this year.
“He’s very important for us, I’m not going to deny it. He came to help us in the Champions League, yes, but also in the FA Cup and the Premier League. It’s important to have a player who can score goals out of nowhere, but in We also scored a lot in the past and were eliminated. Perhaps the problem is that we weren’t solid enough in defence”, he pointed out.
Guardiola will face Thomas Tuchel this Tuesday, the man who beat him in the Champions League final
in 2021, when the German led Chelsea.
“We saw the game a month later and it wasn’t as bad as I thought. It was a very even match, but we forgot it and now we’re here again. I don’t live in the past and it doesn’t worry me. It’s part of the game,” admitted the Spaniard. .
