Guardiola: No pressure for Man City CL win

Guardiola: No pressure for Man City CL win

Pep Guardiola has described Manchester City as Champions League "teenagers" and warns they can not take their place in the quarter-finals for granted ahead of Tuesday's game with Schalke.

And according to Il Giornale reporter Guelpa, Guardiola is so keen on a move to Turin that he has given the club his word and agreed in principal to sign a four-year deal.

"I have two more years and I'm not going to move, it's impossible unless if they sack me and after I go home".

"But if Manchester City want me, I will stay two more years by far - and hopefully another one".

Guardiola's Manchester City are top of the Premier League, having dominated the title race last term. "I am not going to Juventus for the next two seasons". All of this has not deterred the former La Liga and Bundesliga champion from committing his future to his current club. Numerous claims predate the arrival of Guardiola as manager in 2016, since when the club have excelled.

"Well, I guess the first question would be like this", Guardiola said in the post-match press conference. I don't want to do that but I don't know.

With the millions spent on new players, many have suggested that City have to win the trophy to justify the huge investment.

On Friday the Premier League confirmed it had a probe into City under way.

"I prefer this scoreline than last time at Anfield when we played at 3-0 down".

Asked if he was concerned these issues could affect his legacy, Guardiola said: "No, absolutely not". The Football Association, meanwhile, is investigating a claim City made a banned payment to the agent of then 14-year-old Jadon Sancho when he joined the club from Watford four years ago.

Speaking about the latest UEFA investigation on Saturday, Guardiola said he had no concerns his achievements at City would be tainted by the allegations.

"I would say that today the social media influences but I don't understand it. The club's published accounts are full and complete and a matter of legal and regulatory record".
