    The Spanish Pep Guardiola, Manchester City's coach, commented on his team's awaited match against Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals.

    Guardiola said, in a statement highlighted by the official account of Fabrizio Romano, the Mercato expert, on the “X” platform: “I am not thinking about the Real Madrid match now. If we were 18 points ahead in the English Premier League, I would have looked at the Madrid match, but according to the current situation “No.”

    He added: “We are in third place and not far from the top, but if we waste points it will be almost impossible to win the title, after 9 months of competing strongly in the Premier League, so why should we distract our attention now from the title with the match against Real Madrid.”.

    He pointed out: “I think Foden could be a serious contender for the Premier League Player of the Year award. Many players have had a really good season, but I think Foden can definitely be a contender, because of the numbers, the continuity and the level of performance he is providing.”.
