(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER PEP GUARDIOLA, ENDING NEWS CONFERENCE, SAYING: "Thank you guys, have a lovely summer." STORY: Three trophies, an amazing tally of 169 goals in 61 games and some of the most mesmerizing football ever seen in England, yet Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says it will not be enough if his side fail to win the Champions League.

The one blip on his stunning City record is his failure to crack Europe.

City lost to Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur - who finished in fourth place in the league, 27 points behind Guardiola's men - in the quarter-finals.

Speaking on Saturday (May 18) after winning the FA Cup 6-0 to end the season with an unprecedented three domestic trophies, Guardiola was asked what his target would be for next season.

"I know we'll be judged at the end, if we don't win the Champions League it will not be enough, I know that," said the Spaniard, who won the Champions League twice with Barcelona.

"This comes with me, (at Barcelona) we were lucky in four years win two times and the people expect I am something special, that we have to win the Champions League."
