Guardiola speaks on winning Champions League after Man City’s 3-2 win over Schalke


Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, believes they are still not ready to compete for the Champions League, despite taking a big step towards the quarter-finals with a 3-2 away win over Schalke.

City gave away two penalties and were reduced to 10 men after Nicolas Otamendi’s second yellow card, but they fought back to win in the final five minutes, with a Leroy Sane free-kick and Raheem Sterling winner.

However, Guardiola was frustrated to concede two goals, insisting they have to make fewer mistakes if they are to compete in Europe.

“It was a great result but we gave away the first penalty, we gave away the second penalty, we gave away the red card, in this competition that is not good, too many things.

“We are still not ready to fight for the latter stages, that is the reality, but the result is really good.
