Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has sent a message to his players in regards to the opening game on Tuesday against Red Star Belgrade.
City claimed the Champions League trophy last season after a 1-0 win at Istanbul thanks to Rodri’s goal. The Blues lifted the European trophy for the first time in the club’s history after numerous attempts.
A new campaign is set to kick off on Tuesday, as Pep Guardiola’s side hope to retain the title.
Although, Pep Guardiola believes City can achieve more feats of winning the trophy for the second time consecutively, the Spaniard has however sent a warning to his players.
He said: “Tomorrow is the first step. We will try and get the first three points.
“It’s important the players don’t feel relaxed. For our to win the Champions League is incredible but in perspective how many [clubs have] won one Champions League? A lot.
“We haven’t done anything special with just one, but we are incredibly proud.”
