Pep: Winning Man City's first UCL a 'dream' and 'obsession' - ESPN
ISTANBUL -- Pep Guardiola said it is his "dream" and "obsession" to win Manchester City's first Champions League title as the Premier League champions bid to achieve a 'treble' by defeating Inter Milan in Saturday's final in Istanbul.
City, who were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea in their only preview Champions League final appearance in 2021, face three-time European champions Inter having already won the league and FA Cup this season. Victory at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium would see City emulate Manchester United's achievement in 1999 as the only English club to date to do the treble.

Having been hired by City in 2016 to turn City into Champions League winners, Guardiola has so far been unable to deliver the ultimate club prize.
And speaking in Istanbul on Friday, the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach said that winning it against Inter would be the fulfilment of a dream.
