Guardiola: Man City Are 10 Years Behind Barca, Juve & Real

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes his side are a great team, but are a long way from the top teams in European football.
Guardiola thinks his side need 10 years to catch the likes of Barcelona, Juventus, and Real Madrid.
"I'm not going to change because I don't know how to do things in another way," he told L'Esportiu.

"Here, just as it is everywhere, it's 11 against 11 and in the same space. The difference is that the referee allows more and then the game is more balanced.
"I hope to do quite well, as I did in the first season, because I've enjoyed it. There are some people who say it hasn't gone well but the exception is what we have done until now.

"Seven years as a professional head coach and six league titles, and with respect to the one that was lost, there is plenty to discuss. Always in the Champions League semi-finals. This year, we weren't there, but not even Barca have reached the semi-finals every year.

"City are a great team, they've been in the Champions League for five consecutive years, the only team in England to have done so, but to reach Barca, Real Madrid, Bayern, Juventus... it's very tough. You need time, a decade."
