Pep Guardiola has said that the Premier League title will always be his main priority as Manchester City retained the Premier League title while facing tough competition from Liverpool, according to Express
Liverpool gave Manchester City a hard run for the money in the title race throughout the last season, but a 14 game winning streak saw City winning the title for the second time and also retaining the trophy for the second season in a row.
Guardiola’s side also won the Carabao Cup and FA Cup that added for an incredible domestic treble while Liverpool won the Champions League for the sixth time.
And Guardiola has said that he insists the Premier League is his top priority.
“Winning the Premier League is very hard, and I speak from experience,” Guardiola told Catalan newspaper, Ara.
“I am certain Liverpool are eager to win the Premier League. Liverpool has not won the league for 30 years, and we all saw what a team Liverpool was this year.”
It requires a lot of efforts for winning a league, Guardiola said: “I finish the seasons very tired, although when you win, it is less [tiring].
The 48-year-old Guardiola has yet to progress beyond the quarter-finals in the Champions League with City after having lost to Liverpool and Tottenham in the last two seasons.
Manchester City will go into the 2019-20 season to become the only the fifth club to win all the three titles in a row.
