Guardiola concedes they’re playing ‘catch up’ on the rest of Europe.
“I hope to have as much fun here as in the first season, because I enjoyed it,” Guardiola told Esportiu.
“There are people who say that it has not gone well, but it’s the exception to what I’ve done so far – seven years of coaching and six leagues won.
“I’ve always been to the Champions League semi-finals. This year we didn’t get there, but not even Barça get to the semis every year.
“City are a great team, who have been in the Champions League for five years in a row, unique among the English, but getting to Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus… it’s very complicated. You need time, a decade.”
