The Spaniard has won seven titles since joining Manchester City in 2016, but is experiencing some difficulties this season.

City have already lost six league games in this campaign and look set to lose their title to Liverpool, and face the tough task of Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League's round of 16.

Guardiola has now come out with a somewhat surprising admission, saying that City could sack him if they fail to knock Los Blancos out of the competition.

"I want to win the Champions League," Guardiola told Football Daily.

"I'm dreaming of it and I'm excited about preparing for the game against Madrid for the next two weeks.

"This process and these two weeks before (the game) will be the happiest two weeks of my profession.

"If we don't beat them, then the chairman or sporting director might come and say, 'It's not good enough, we want the Champions League, I'm going to sack you.'"

Guardiola has been in charge of Manchester City for 213 matches so far, winning 158 of them and picking up an impressive 2.34 points per game.
