Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, believes that winning the Premier League is more difficult than winning the Champions League.
Manchester City, led by Pep Guardiola, are aiming for their fourth domestic title in five seasons on Sunday.
City will win their fourth domestic title in five seasons if they defeat Aston Villa in their final league game on Sunday.
Defending champions Liverpool might finish the season on a high even if they don’t win the league, as they will meet Real Madrid in the Champions League final, something Guardiola has yet to achieve during his time at City.
Guardiola, on the other hand, believes the Premier League is the more valuable trophy.
“I believe it is more challenging. The Spaniard was quoted in the Irish Times as saying, “There are a lot of weeks and games, challenges with injuries, good and bad times with varied scenarios, strong opponents.”
“It’s rewarding because it happens every day.” When you fight for the Premier League and come out on top at the end, it gives you the impression that you are having a great time. When you win, we are happier in our life.
“It [makes for] nice training sessions, a good setting, and a good mindset when you win and win.” It’s not like the FA Cup or a single match; it’s a regular occurrence.
“I’m not dismissing the Champions League. To win it, we’re insane. It’s something we want, something we adore.
“We’d love to be in Paris [for the final] next week, but winning 38 games instead of six, eight, or nine is a different experience.”
“I’ve always enjoyed it, ever since I started playing.” We’re on the verge of joining the league. “We’re on the verge of making it.”
Guardiola won the Champions League twice as a manager of Barcelona, in 2009 and 2011, but lost in the final last season with City.
