Man City superstar Bernardo Silva feels that the Champions League trophy is the only title that the Cityzens have left to win.
The 28-year-old Portuguese international spoke to City’s official social media channel, via FCInterNews, ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Inter Milan.
Manchester City’s dominance in English football over the better part of the decade can hardly be questioned.
In the Premier League, the Cityzens have won an incredible five out of the last titles. Meanwhile, their victory over Man United at Wembley last weekend was their second FA Cup final win under Pep Guardiola.
In the Champions League, however, it’s been a different story.
The Cityzens have reached the Champions League final once under Guardiola. They were also in the semifinal last season.
However, as of yet, they haven’t gone all the way.
This feels, in some sense, incongruous with how utterly imperious the Cityzens’ league form has been during the period.
Man City Star Bernardo Silva: Want To Win UCL To Complete The Set
City midfielder Bernardo Silva admitted that “It’s been a difficult season for us in some ways.”
“It’s been hard because we’ve been chasing Arsenal for 90% of the way.”
“We haven’t had that invincible feeling that you get from winning five, six matches in a row,” he continued. “It’s always one, two, three, four wins, and then another draw or loss.”
He then reflected on the win over Arsenal in February, stating that “It made us believe that we can win tough matches.”
“The same thing happened the exact moment we beat the Gunners at home as well, around the same time we knocked Bayern Munich out of the Champions League.”
“There we finished first in the Premier League and reached the sem-finals by eliminating one of the best teams in the world,” he added.
“And so we went into the last month of the season, knowing it was going to be very difficult, but we thought: ‘We’re fighting for all these trophies, except the League Cup, let’s go forward and give it our all. What will be will be.'”
“And that’s what we did,” he noted. “Now we want the Champions League, because it’s the one title we haven’t won yet.”
