Man City boss Guardiola turns air blue with clean sweep talk

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is unimpressed by claims of a clean sweep.

He did not hide his exasperation when asked if a clean sweep of silverware was his target this season after Saturday's 4-0 demolition of Bournemouth.

Guardiola, speaking at a press conference, swore and paused before making clear that producing an attractive, winning side is his only aim at this early stage of the campaign.

He said: "Manchester City arrived once in their lives in the Champions League semi-final, so when the people believe I am going to win the Champions League because I am a really good coach... I don't think so, guys.

"My happiness does not depend on if I am going to win all the titles or not. My target is now to be happy today, drink a little bit of wine, and tomorrow prepare for the (next) game. After we are going to see.

"My question is, 'Are the people who came to this game really enjoying it?' Yes? Wow, that is enough. To win titles or not, we will see.

"On Friday I saw two magnificent opponents - Liverpool and Chelsea. I know how difficult it will be."
