Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 21/10/2019

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has made a bold confession about the club’s ambition to win the Champions League, according to report.

The Champions League has been Manchester City's main target having dominated the Premier League for the second season running under the Spanish manager.

Manchester City failed in the knock-out stage for several seasons in a row and Guardiola believes that their lack of goals will cost them another Champions League if things failed to change.

And Guardiola is of the view that their profligacy in front of goal will cost them in Champions League matches.

"We miss a lot of chances in the final third [during a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday] and we have to do that to be clinical. When the people say about the Champions League being the target, we are still not ready," he told reporters.

"We create a lot and we don't concede, but we can still improve. We are a team in the last two seasons who score a lot and create a lot. I don't have doubt about that, but still, we have to keep going and work on that."

Manchester City will take on Atalanta on Tuesday in the Champions League at the Etihad Stadium.
