Guardiola can guide Man City to Champions League glory, says Villa


David Villa believes Pep Guardiola can lead Manchester City to Champions League success after hailing the Spanish manager.

Former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss Guardiola lifted the trophy twice during his time at Camp Nou, most recently in 2011.

Guardiola failed to go all the way in three seasons with Bayern, however, and has fallen well short in his three full campaigns at the Etihad Stadium.

City were eliminated in the last-16 stage in 2017 and have failed to progress beyond the quarter-finals in the last two years, but Villa is convinced Guardiola can guide them to glory.

“For all the coaches and all the big clubs, it’s normal to focus on the Champions League, because it’s the best tournament you can play with a club,” he told The Mirror.

“Pep is obviously one of the best coaches in the world and obviously the subject of his focus is to win all the trophies.

“Manchester City have never won this trophy, they’ve been behind in terms of it for many years, so it’s normal they have a big obsession with this kind of trophy.

“It’s the best tournament you can play as a soccer player, but it’s difficult to win for everyone, not just one or two clubs.
