Guardiola grateful to be in the running for silverware at Man City

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola expressed his gratitude for being in contention for silverware at the end of the season, emphasizing the ambition to prolong the challenge as far as possible. With big matches against Real Madrid and Chelsea coming up, City have to enjoy being in the race for trophies.

“We have to admit it, what a privilege. After what we have done in the previous seasons: fighting for the title one point behind, 80 points, 21 points left, on Wednesday playing against Real Madrid with the chance to qualify for the Champions League semi-finals,” Guardiola said.

Victory on Saturday night moved City above Arsenal and Liverpool in the Premier League standings. Guardiola added that they can only try to maintain the pressure on title rivals by winning their games and putting the pressure on them to keep up.

In the upcoming games, Guardiola emphasized the importance of just focusing on their own performances and results. “We have six games and after if we are not able, congratulate them. But we have done our job and that is what we have to do,” he said. The challenge is to keep extending the pressure on their competitors in the title race.

Despite the challenges ahead, Guardiola remains optimistic about City’s chances and the privilege of being in contention for multiple trophies. With a positive mindset and a focus on their own performances, City will look to continue their pursuit of silverware in all competitions.
