'Man City May Sack Me If I Don’t Beat Real Madrid' - Guardiola

Pep Guardiola, city boss who has won five major trophies in three seasons at the Etihad, said he could be sacked if he fails to beat Real Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Man City May Sack Me If I Don’t Beat Real Madrid - Guardiola

The Manchester City manager has done much well in his job at Etihad but has failed to progress beyond the quarter-finals of the Champions League

Guardiola’s side trail Liverpool at the top of the Premier League by a mammoth 22 points this season with their campaign now set to be judged on how they fare in Europe.

He said;

I want to win the Champions League. I dream (of it) and I will enjoy preparing for the games against Madrid.

If we don’t beat them, OK, come the chairman or the sports director and say, ‘It’s not good enough, we want the Champions League, I’m going to sack you.

I don’t know (if this would happen). It has happened many times and could maybe happen.
Guardiola also hit back at the suggestion that the success or failure of a season should only be measured in trophies.

He added

We give a bad, bad message for the new generation, for our kids, to just count the winner, the trophies to winning.

You say the season is a disaster but if you win the Champions League it will be exceptional. Why? It is difficult to win.

If you don’t, we can say in more than 100 years of history (there) were 100 failure seasons for Manchester City. That is not true.
