Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has called his team legends after they won their fourth Premier League title in five years. City won the Premier League title after a dramatic comeback from 2-0 down to pip Liverpool by a point. They scored three goals in a spell of five and a half magical minutes with Ilkay Gundogan coming on to score a brace.
“The moment we found a goal it changed everything. We are playing in not normal circumstances but you have to handle it,” Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said. “Gundogan is the best inside runner we have. We were arriving down the sides and we needed a player with the sense of tempo in the box and he’s the best. We are legends. When you win the Premier League four times in five seasons it’s because these guys are so, so special. We will be remembered. The first title we won with lots of margins, then at Brighton, then winning at home without fans and now with people, it’s the best.”
“The magnitude of your achievement is defined by the magnitude of your rival. I’ve never seen a team like Liverpool. I know it’s tough but a huge congratulations to them. They help us to be a better team,” he added. “Today is special as it’s the fifth anniversary of the Manchester arena attack when 22 people were killed. This is for the families. Today was special.”
“Jurgen Klopp said a few days ago that there are few winners but a lot of triers,” he added. “I love this concept. I am a good trier, that is for sure. Am I going to say that Liverpool is a loser after what they have done in the Premier League over the recent years?”
