Guardiola chooses between EPL, Champions League titles


Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has admitted he prefers to win the Premier League than the Champions League.

City could still repeat last season’s historic Treble, as they are fighting for the league, Champions League and the FA Cup.

Of all the competitions, Guardiola has been most successful in the Premier League, winning it in five of the last six years and the last three in a row.

But the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has said the league remains his overriding priority.

He told reporters: “Of the domestic trophies, it is the most important — Premier League or La Liga. I’m not going to say the Champions League is not nice, of course it is.

“So now we have it and know how it feels in our soul and we are at peace, for the fact we’ve got it.

“[The Premier League] is just the nicest because it’s more difficult, there are more games, you know every week, two or three games.

“The Champions League, of course, is important, but it depends on something you perhaps can’t control. Both are incredibly important, but the Premier League proves a lot. It shows the mentality of the teams, being there all the time for many, many years.”
