Guardiola – Winning the Premier League will mean more

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola insisted winning the Premier League will mean more to him than success in the Champions League following Saturday’s victory at Tottenham.

Pep celebrating wildly

Knocked out of the Champions League quarter-finals by Liverpool Tuesday, City moved a step closer to domestic honours with a 3-1 triumph over Tottenham at Wembley.

Guardiola and City will be crowned champions Sunday if neighbours Manchester United surprisingly slip up at home to rock-bottom West Brom and the Spanish boss talked up his team’s exploits over the course of a gruelling Premier League campaign following their Champions League exit.

“If you have now 87 points, five games left, it’s because we did outstanding when people said it was a big failure what happened last week,” Guardiola said.

“They don’t understand absolutely anything about football.

“The Champions League is seven games, you can win the Champions League but the league is every three days in the same month.

“I’m sorry but it’s much more important what these guys have done the whole season.”
