Manchester City face Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday and Guardiola is under pressure to lead the side to success. “If you want to win the Champions League, you have to do it every season. It’s not a once in a lifetime opportunity,” Guardiola said, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News. “It’s a process. It doesn’t start in the semi-final

Real Madrid are the two-time defending European champions and will be looking to retain their crown, as well as win their fourth Champions League title. Juventus are the reigning

“We try to be better each day and that’s what we focus on. We play our hardest each game.”

"We had an unbelievable season and we are all very proud of it," Guardiola said. "But the most important thing is that we got to the final. We had a fantastic game against Chelsea and we are all very happy with the result. We were unlucky not to win the trophy, but we still have our memories. "And now I am here [at Bayern] and I am really excited about the new season. I can't wait to get started. I am really

“I think he can be very happy and he can continue his career. I think it’s very important for every player to have a good career, and for me it’s very important to have a good relationship with the players, and I think with this decision, he can continue his career. “We have to be respectful.

“I am sad to be leaving but I am also excited about my new challenge. I am looking forward to playing for the new club and helping them to improve.” The 24-year-old’s departure was confirmed by Newcastle on their website. Dias made 115 appearances for Newcastle, scoring four goals.

“It’s football,” “It’s the life we lead.” These are the two main characters in the song and they are discussing the recent situation between them and their lack of communication. They both seem to be resigned to the fact that they can’t be friends any more and that they will have to move on.
