Pep Guardiola insists he has an 'exceptional' Man City legacy

Pep Guardiola insists he has an 'exceptional' Man City legacy

Pep Guardiola already has an "exceptional" legacy at Manchester City irrespective of whether he wins the Champions League for the club.

City are looking to book a place in the showpiece of Europe's top competition in the second leg of their semi-final against Real Madrid on Wednesday (17.05.23) but Guardiola feels that he has already achieved enough at City to be considered a part of the club's folklore.

He said: "My legacy is already exceptional already. We have been here many times, we are not stupid to know how important it is. It is one of the most important [matches], with the competition and the rival.

"I’ve told the players to enjoy the moment, we are incredibly lucky to be here. It’s in our hands. It depends on us. We don’t have to do anything exceptional, [just] win one game to reach the final and we’ll do everything. I have an incredible feeling about the players: whatever happens, thank you so much to them for getting us here again."

Guardiola is on the brink of winning a fifth Premier League title in six years for the club and thinks that his teams will be remembered even if they are unable to win the Champions League for the first time.

He said: "The legacy is that we've had one hell of a time and for many years they will remember a generation of players who for five or six years scored lots of goals and conceded very few and that we won lots of things and won very well and people should remember that. It would be a good book whether or not they will remember us or not I don't know but we have had a good time."
