Man City boss Guardiola stands by Real Madrid comments

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has fired back at Santiago Solari.

The Real Madrid manager said Guardiola left his club out of his picks for the Champions League title to provoke a reaction.

"Thank you so much, but I will be nice for the Madrid supporters, who are upset with me, who are saying the best team in Europe is Real Madrid," he said at his press conference.

"Because in the last three years they won and I think they are the best team by far in Europe in the last decade, and the best team is Real Madrid.

"But Real Madrid not the best team of the decade when you count leagues and cups and the other ones, because Juventus, Barcelona and Bayern Munich won six or seven times and they [Madrid] won two.

"I am pretty sure that Solari now understands my answer better. I am pretty sure they are happy now with me."
