Pep: My legacy is already exceptional without Man City treble

Pep Guardiola insists his legacy is "exceptional already" even if Manchester City do not achieve their treble dream.

A potentially historic end of the season lies ahead of City with one win needed to claim a fifth Premier League title in six years and an FA Cup final at Wembley against Manchester United to come.

But first Guardiola's side host Real Madrid in their Champions League semi-final second leg on Wednesday although whatever happens in the remaining weeks of the season, the City boss is not concerned about how he will be remembered.

"My legacy is exceptional already," he said ahead of facing Real. "I have been here many times already.

    "We are not stupid to know how important [Wednesday'] game is. It is maybe one of the most important games since we are together here. We cannot deny that. For the competition, for the rival, for many things.

    "I said to the players live it like a huge opportunity, enjoy the moment, we are incredibly lucky to be here. It is in our hands, it depends on us, we don't have to do something exceptional, just be ourselves and win one game to reach the final.

    "We are going to give everything, do everything, I have an incredible feeling about the team. Whatever happens, thank you so much to them to bring me and the City fans to be here again."
