Guardiola: Final Against Inter Milan Is Not A Gift

Pep Guardiola has warned his Manchester City players that Inter Milan will make things difficult for them in the final of the UEFA Champions League.

The Citizens booked their spot in the final after a comprehensive 4-0 victory against holders Real Madrid on Wednesday night.

Manchester City won the semi-final contest 5-1 on aggregate.

The Premier League side will head into the final against Inter in Istanbul on June 10 as the overwhelming favourites.

Guardiola is however wary of the Nerazzurri and insisted that a final against an Italian team is not the best gift.

“A Final against an Italian team is not the best gift, honestly,” he told BT Sport.

“This victory will bring a lot of compliments, I know that’s normal, but we have time to prepare mentally and of course we’re going to try to do it.”

Guardiola’s men are on the verge of winning the Premier League for the third year in a row, are in the FA Cup Final against Manchester United on June 3 and are trying to win their first ever Champions League trophy.

Inter won it three times already, most recently in 2010, and the last time Guardiola lifted this trophy was at Barcelona in 2011.
