Pep Guardiola: This would be a FAILURE.

Pep Guardiola claims that winning no silverware for Manchester City this season would be a failure.

The former Barcelona boss is no stranger to success and silverware, and claims that if he is to consider this season a success, he must win a trophy as Manchester City manager.

“If I have no silverware, I will not be here for a long time,” said the 46-year-old Catalan manager.

“No silverware – it will not be a good season,” Guardiola added. “I knew that in August. Being a manager depends on results.

“I know what my standard was in the past and I know what is on my shoulders. I have to handle that.

“But I know we will be judged on the titles we have won. My period in Munich was judged like a disaster because we were not able to win the Champions League. I won three leagues in a row, we won two cups from three, we arrived every time in the semi-finals and finals but it was a disaster.

“I have to handle that but what I can say is try to play better, better, better than the previous month. That’s what I want to see for the next year – be better.”
