EPL: Winning Premier League more difficult than Champions League – Guardiola


Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola believes that winning the English Premier League title is more difficult than clinching Europe’s most prestigious trophy, the Champions League.

Guardiola said this ahead of Man City’s Premier League final day fixture against Aston Villa on Sunday.

Guardiola’s men are on top of the Premier League table with a point ahead of second position Liverpool, with just one more game to go.

Guardiola guided Man City to a Champions League final in 2021, losing to Chelsea, while Real Madrid eliminated his team in the semi-final this season.

“The Premier League is more difficult [than the Champions League],” Guardiola told reporters during his pre-match press conference ahead of Man City’s clash with Aston Villa.”

“There are many weeks, many games, many injuries, good and bad times, different situations… Success has been there in recent years. Fighting for the Premier League makes sense day-to-day in the changing room.

“I am not saying that the Champions League isn’t important,” Guardiola added.

“We would have loved to be in Paris next week, but winning 38 games is different from winning six or seven, although it’s always nice.”
