Pep Guardiola: Drawing With Liverpool Is One Of My Happiest Days

Under-fire Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola claimed that his team's 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Sunday was one of the happiest days of his managerial career.

After being dumped out the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 by Monaco in midweek, the Spaniard admitted that he struggled to get his players motivated for the weekend's fixture against the Reds.

The Citizens saw themselves go behind in the game shortly after half-time, when James Milner scored from the penalty spot, but Argentina forward Sergio Aguero managed to rescue a point for Guardiola's side in the 69th minute of the match.

"This is one of the happiest days of my career as a manager," the Spanish tactician told Sky Sports.

"After our defeat in the Champions League, for two days we were so, so sad and in the training sessions we didn't talk too much.

"We arrive here against Liverpool, who haven't had European football all year and had all week to prepare for that game, and how we fight and how we run and how we showed spirit – today is one of the happiest days of my life as a manager.

"The way we play, we concede chances but we create a lot of chances. Like all matches, we create more chances but this is our problem, our problem is we don't score goals.

"With the conditions we played that game, after being (knocked) out of the Champions League and playing against Liverpool, one of the best teams, and how we played against them means a lot to me – so that is why I am happy with my players.

"We always play to win, we always play to attack, we always play to respect our spectators and, of course, we are sad because we didn't win.

"When you approach one game after 10 games winning nothing is special. You have to consider the situation we played this game, how we played against them, a top team – they have exceptional players – means a lot to me. That is why I am so happy."
