Pep Guardiola says he won’t kill himself if Man City don’t win the Champions League.

It’s the prime target for the club this season, as they try to win the trophy for the first time in their history.

“If I don't win I'm not going to kill myself. I will try my best for the next period,” said Guardiola, who won it twice with Barcelona.

“My first press conference in the first year here it was the same question, people said "you are here to win the Champions League?" and I said "OK". I speak with Khaldoon (Al Mubarak), Ferran (Soriano) and they didn't tell me that.”

Man City fans don’t tend to turn up in droves for European games though. Pep says the club is working on that.

“We are going to try to seduce our fans,” Guardiola added. “All I can do is say to our fans 'come to join us and support us, these guys deserve it'.

“It is a reality of our club, we have to accept it. We have to seduce them so they realise how it's important.

“I know for the fans it's the Premier League that's most exciting. We know that as a club, we've done polls, I know how special it is. But this competition is nice too.

“They have to live it as a dream. We have outrageous players, they want to win and make a step forward too. We need the fans.”
