Pep Guardiola has suggested the media were wrong to believe
that he could transform Manchester City into a side contesting
for the treble, insisting he made no promises upon taking
the job.

will do in my future

City, who were dumped out of the Champions League by Monaco in
midweek, face Liverpool in a crunch match at the top of
the Premier League on Sunday, as both sides vie for second
place behind runaway leaders Chelsea.

Despite their Champions League
exit, Guardiola insisted that any difficulties City
have faced have only reaffirmed his belief in his playing
style, hinting that too much is expected of his side.

Pep Guardiola Manchester City

“I am the manager, I am responsible absolutely for everything
that happened [in Monaco],” Guardiola said.

“Maybe you [journalists] are wrong – Pep is sitting here, now
they are going to win the treble. Easy.

“You are wrong. I never came here and said we are going to win
one title, I never said I am going to win the treble, I never
said I am going to win the double – never said it.

“But I never said it on my first day in Barcelona. I promised a
lot of work. Few guys can beat me on that. I work a lot. I am
so proud about that.

“But I never promise titles, never in my life. Just work. All I
can assure is the team are going to play the way I
want. The only power I have is this one.

“I am pretty convinced that the second half showed me in the
game in Monaco that when you attack more and you play more
aggressive you concede few.

“When you are more [passive] you concede more. I learned that
again. The influence of that game showed me again I am more
convinced about what I want to do.

Klopp: I’m right man
for Liverpool

“If you think we are a little bit more sad and disappointed,
I promise you we are. The players, they are sad a lot,
like all the people here.

“We have to get our heads up. We have a lot of things to
recover as much as possible and there are a lot of things to
play for. One is to be in the Champions League next season and
the other is the semi-finals of the FA Cup.”

City, who will face Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-finals,
will move four points clear of Liverpool should they
overcome Jurgen Klopp’s side.
