Guardiola Plays Down Man City’s Trophy Clean Sweep

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has poured cold water on the possibilities of his side winning all four trophies available for the this season.

This comes after City proceeded to the semifinals of the Carabao Cup after eliminated Leicester City 4-3 in a penalty shootout on Tuesday, with Claudio Bravo saving Riyad Mahrez’s effort after Jamie Vardy had hit the post following a 1-1 draw after extra time.

City are currently clear at the top of the Premier League table with 11 points and have progressed to the last 16 of the Champions League, but Guardiola insists that it is impossible to lift all trophies.

 “That is not going to happen. Of course not. Come on, that isn’t real. What we’re living isn’t real,” he said.

“That is not going to happen. The situation of winning 16 or 17 games in a row in the league and qualifying for the Champions League before we finished the group stage and now we’re here playing with a lot of young players.

“That is not normal. In football you drop points and you lose competitions. I am not thinking about how many titles, I am thinking about the next game.”
