Man City boss Pep Guardiola said that he may not be good enough to win the Champions League after they were knocked out by Real Madrid in dramatic circumstances. They scored two goals after the 89th minute to take the tie into extra time. Karim Benzema scored from the penalty spot to send Madrid into the finals. Guardiola last won the Champions League with Barcelona in 2011.

“It’s a question I cannot answer – football is unpredictable. The owners didn’t buy this club and invest in these incredible facilities just to win the Champions League, they did it to be there in all competitions, every season. We want to [win the Champions League], maybe I am not good enough to help the team to do it. Nobody knows what would happen with another manager and other players,” Man City boss Pep Guardiola said. “The people say if this group of players or Guardiola don’t win a title, then they’re failures, I completely disagree. We know how difficult everything is. No, I am always starving. I cannot spend a year just thinking about how happy I am. If we had won the Champions League it would be the money we spend, not how hard we worked. The players don’t realize now but it’s [losing] a gift for us. I’d love to win the Champions League and be in the final but we have to be better than what happened in Madrid.”

“No words can help to feel what we all feel. Just time, sleep as best as possible, and think of the next target. On Saturday, we’ll be together and talk about who we are as a team and what we’ve done to get to the semi-finals of the Champions League. These are the moments I am most proud to be here,” he added. “For me it’s incredibly remarkable to be in the Champions League semi-finals again, taking steps to be better and competing against an established team home and away.”
