Pep Guardiola admits his spell as Manchester City manager “will not be complete” until the club win the Champions League.
The Spaniard has won nine trophies since joining City in 2016, including four Premier League titles.
But he hasn’t been able to add to the two Champions League Barcelona successes in 2009 and 2011: City’s closest come to competition victory came in 2021, when his side lost to Premier League rivals Chelsea in the final.
City are qualified for the round of 16 of this season’s competition, where they will face Bundesliga side RB Leipzig and are once again regarded by many as favorites to go all the way.
Guardiola, who recently extended his contract at City until 2025, he admits that despite all his success at the Etihad, his project won’t be complete until he lifts the Champions League again.

“He’s not the only one, but I admit it’s the trophy we want and my time here won’t be complete if we don’t win it,” said the 51-year-old.
“I will do anything in the time we have together but I would say the same before. It is the trophy that we do not have and we will try to get it. I have a feeling that sooner or later they will get it. “
City return to action following Thursday’s World Cup break with a heavyweight Carabao Cup clash with Liverpool, before resuming their Premier League season with a home game against Leeds United on 28 December.
