Pep Guardiola last won the Champions League back in 2011.
He has not won it since and some are assuming it might be the big reason why he chose to manage City for a fifth year, something he has never done before.
Speaking ahead of their clash with Olympiakos on Wednesday, Guardiola said: “”It’s not an obsession. We will try our best.
“We have an important chance to almost qualify. That’s so good, to be in the best 16 teams in Europe.
“I expected a reaction after last season when we finished against Lyon in Portugal. We know what we have to do.
“The season is still young and I’m fully optimistic we are going to do a good season.”
“It’s important, I know it’s important but if it doesn’t happen it will be important too,” said Guardiola, according to Fox Sports.
“I’ll be the same guy, wake up in the morning, work a lot, go to sleep as early as possible, eat good and take care of myself as much as possible, love the people I love.
“It’s not going to change my life.
“I’m going to do my best but when I say thank you to everybody for my time here it’s not going to change my opinion about this title or no title.”
