Pep Guardiola gave reporters an excellent response when asked if Manchester City are favourites to win the Champions League this season.
The former Barcelona manager had just seen his City side claim the 18th win in a row against Newcastle, a result that means the Blues have had the best start to a league campaign in any of the top five European leagues in history.
THE CLOCK IS TICKING – DON’T MISS OUT ON THIS AMAZING OFFER!
It’s no secret that City have a favourable draw in the last 16 against Basel, making progression in the competition almost a certainty.
However, Guardiola still doesn’t fancy his side to win football’s most prestigious prize. He was quizzed in a post-match press conference and he simply asked the journalist who Lionel Messi plays for. The reporter, in response, told him ‘Barcelona’, and Guardiola said they’re the team to beat.

PG: “Who does Messi play for?”
PG: “So they’re the favourites.”
Maybe one day Guardiola will manage Messi again.
