Man City manager Pep Guardiola has revealed his team is determined to win the 2023 FIFA Club World Cup hosted in Saudi Arabia, as it would complete last season’s success.

The City boss believes that adding the Club World Cup trophy will seal the incredible success registered by the club in recent years.

City who are making their first appearance in the competition will go against Japanese side Urawa Red Diamonds on Tuesday evening in Saudi Arabia.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference at the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, the boss reflected on previous entries with Barcelona and emphasised his desire to add to the club’s magnificent haul during his reign.

“First of all we have to deserve to be in the final to take this trophy,” he said

“It is my fourth time l have played this competition and the previous times the semi- final was really tough, really tricky every time.

“We want to win it. Once we are here, it is a trophy we do not have. We want to close the little circle and win all the trophies we could do. This is the last one”
