Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola insists he is not obsessed about adding to his two Champions League cups.

Guardiola won the most interesting championship twice at Barcelona, however, failed to win the trophy with Bayern Munich and has so far failed to do with Manchester City.

The city will play against Dinamo Zagreb in their second Champions League game this season.

“I want to win it but if I don’t, it will not change my life,” said Guardiola. “I’m not going to kill myself. In my first press conference, it was the same question – you are here to win the Champions League. I spoke to Ferran [Soriano, City chief executive] and Khaldoon [Al Mubarak, chairman] and they didn’t tell me that.

“It’s impossible to arrive and do it without the feeling that we want to do it. We tried the first season, we tried the second season when we were up for four competitions. I would be happier, but it wouldn’t change anything in my private life.”
