“The Premier League is the most important thing.”
When Asked if he was desperate to win the Champions League again soon, Guardiola said: “Desperate is not the right word, for Barcelona the first they won it was in 1992. Sir Alex Ferguson took his time to win it.
“It would be a big mistake tor Man City to be focusing on it, of course it will be a target, of course we will fight.
“But for us our big moments of the season when we were in November, December and we were real contenders for the Champions League, but that was because we were doing so well in the league.
“That competition, you play at Anfield, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Roma, Bayern, United, Juventus, all of the big clubs.
“Of course we are going to try it, but I don’t think: ‘If we don’t win the Champions League in the next five years it will be a disaster!’ I don’t think so.”
