The Spaniard was speaking at a post-match press conference after the victory against Tottenham Hotspurs at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday, January 19th, 2023. He frowned at the statement that his team's success is always been compared to winning the Champions League.

People say we haven’t had success because we haven’t won the UCL, that is bulls***. Two back-to-backs [#PL] against this Liverpool, the way we played, in this country.

Manchester City have been close to winning the trophy in the last two seasons. They lost the final to Chelsea during the 2020/2021 season and lost the semi-final against Real Madrid last season (2021/22).

Supporters of the Cityzens will hope they can clinch their most-wanted trophy this season, especially with the inclusion of Erling Haaland in the team.
