Man City chief Soriano: We're not obsessed by Champions League

Manchester City chief Ferran Soriano denies they're obsessed by the Champions League.

City are yet to win the European competition.

But Soriano told the Dr. Football Podcast: "We don't make it (the Champions League) our main goal because luck plays a big role in the tournament. Because you can play a few bad games and be out.

"However, the championship winner is the best team in the league. We say among ourselves: 'The Premier League is our bread and butter. That's where we make money'.

"The Champions League is an additional trophy that we want to take, but we know that it can depend on a little luck, so we don't have an obsession. Now everyone is talking about the success of Real Madrid, but it would be fair to say that they were a little lucky. Perhaps they deserved to lose to PSG, Chelsea, us and Liverpool."
