Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has said that his success at the club would be evaluated on the basis of his success in the Champions League. The Citizens have been drawn against Tottenham Hotspur in the quarter-final of the competition and are considered as one of the potential contenders to win the coveted trophy this term. Pep Guardiola’s side have shown their dominance in the last matchup in the round of 16 of the competition as they steamrolled Schalke in their own backyard by 7-0, notching up one of the biggest wins in the history of Champions League with an aggregate score of 10-2 over the two legs.
Speaking to the media ahead of their FA Cup clash against Swansea City, the Spaniard said, “I was judged in Munich in that way so I will be judged here as well.”
He added, “My period in Munich wasn’t good for most people because we didn’t get one final. We got semi-finals but we didn’t get a final and we were judged. I’m a lucky guy. My standards are high. I have to reach it.”
The City gaffer also said that he doesn’t have a problem for being judged on his success in the UCL. He said, “If we do not win the Champions League, our work for three seasons, every three days, is a failure or a disaster. I completely do not agree but what can I say? Accept it and move on.”
