Despite the disappointing result against Ajax, two wins could still be enough to keep Cityâ€™s dream of qualifying for the last 16 but the manager wasn't interested in talking fairy tales.
â€śItâ€™s finished,â€ť was his diagnosis, â€śI always believe in my team but now I think it is very difficult.
â€śIf we win two games, get eight points and go through, we can win the Champions League, itâ€™s simple â€“ if our destiny is this then we should win the Champions League.
â€śWe had a chance to win in the Bernabeu but we made some mistakes, against Ajax away it was the same, we didnâ€™t play well but we took the lead and had two chances to score the second goal but we didnâ€™t take the chances.
â€śIt was the same thing tonight, but itâ€™s finished.â€ť
