Kevin De Bruyne believes this season will be a waste if Manchester City fail to win the Champions League.
The Cityzens have already conceded the Premier League title to Liverpool this season, dropping 22 points behind. With the FA Cup still in the running and the European crown, City still have a chance to register silverware.
Ahead of their round of 16 encounter with Real Madrid, De Bruyne said, “Obviously it’s Madrid. They have won the most Champions Leagues out of everybody. But I think we will go there to try to play our game like we always do and try to play offensive football, try to put them under pressure, try to have a good game and, if we can, win.”
“If we don’t win it [the Champions League] everybody is going to say we are failures like the last five years!” he added. “It’s something we’ve not won yet. We always want to win everything but sometimes another team is better or performing well – like Liverpool are doing this season. It’s just that way and you just have to admit it. But we will just go there to win that game. You can’t look too much forwards and see what’s going to happen.”
