Kevin De Bruyne and Pep Guardiola: Champions League is City dream and obsession
Pep Guardiola and Kevin De Bruyne admit winning the Champions League has become both a dream and an obsession for Manchester City.
City stand on the brink of glory as they prepare to face Inter Milan in the final in Istanbul on Saturday.
Guardiolas side are strong favourites for a game that could not only see them crowned European champions for the first time but complete the treble.
The Premier League winners are hoping to put years of frustration behind them after several near misses in their pursuit of the prize they covet most.
De Bruyne gave his feelings on the matter when he was asked if victory was a dream or an obsession as City held a pre-match press conference at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium on Friday.
Maybe both, it depends who you ask, said the Belgium playmaker. Every professional player wants to win the Champions League and be on top.
If you can win the Champions League, youve reached one of the biggest things you can.
To compete every year is amazing, and Ive been able to compete against the best, but weve got a chance to close that if we are good enough.
