Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola wants to emulate his success at Barcelona by winning the Champions League with Manchester City.

“I want to [win it] a lot. We want to try. It is an honour to be here against an elite club in Bayern Munich. We will not take it for granted,” Guardiola told a press conference ahead of Tuesday’s first leg at the Etihad.

“The question has been coming every single season. I understand that. We try every single season. Teams you face are also good and want to win too. My dream is to live it again. We want to try but that doesn’t mean we are going to win.”

Guardiola added: “In this competition it’s not about the form, it counts how you perform for 95 minutes, it doesn’t count what you have done three days ago, in this competition you have to be perfect then.”
