The Citizens' European dream came to and in the Spanish capital this week after a 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in the second leg.

Guardiola has said that he might not be the coach that can lead the Manchester outfit to their first Champions League trophy.

"It's a question I cannot answer - football is unpredictable," Guardiola said when asked if the current crop players can win a European trophy, as per Sky Sports.

"The owners didn't buy this club and invest in these incredible facilities just to win the Champions League, they did it to be there in all competitions, every season.

"We want to [win the Champions League], maybe I am not good enough to help the team to do it. Nobody knows what would happen with another manager and other players.

"The people say if this group of players or Guardiola don't win a title, then they're failures, I completely disagree. We know how difficult everything is."

When asked if he is still hungry for trophies, he added,"No, I am always starving. I cannot spend a year just thinking about how happy I am. If we had won the Champions League it would be the money we spend, not how hard we work.

"The players don't realise now but it's [losing] a gift for us. I'd love to win the Champions League and be in the final but we have to be better from what happened in Madrid."
