Man City v Wolves: What was said?
Pep Guardiola claims Man City don’t have time to enjoy breaking records.
The town boss said: “We don’t have time. There are a lot of games, every third day per game, so you have to rest and think about the next one.
“We are delighted with what we have done so far, we cannot deny it. If no team has done it before, that means how difficult it is.
“But, in the end, what matters in the world is whether you lift the trophies or not. We still can’t sit on the couch and say how good everything is.
“There is a lot of work to be done and I have signals that we can still improve.
“The best team in Europe is Bayern Munich because they won everything, they are the best. In England, the champions are Liverpool, they are the best.
“The crown, if you want to win it, you have to win. In February, March, no one is a champion. “
