Guardiola: Man City are ‘fighting for everything’

Pep Guardiola says Manchester City are ‘fighting for everything’ after seeing his team reach the FA Cup semi-finals with a 3-2 comeback win at Swansea City.

Matt Grimes and former City youngster Bersant Celina gave the Championship side a shock 2-0 halftime lead in South Wales, but City hit back in the second half through Bernardo Silva, Kristoffer Nordfeldt’s unfortunate own goal and Sergio Aguero.

The win keeps City’s hopes of an unprecedented ‘quadruple’ alive, and Guardiola admits his side will continue to fight on all fronts.

“People say we are going to win three or four titles and the day we drop one competition they say it’s a big failure for Manchester City,” Guardiola told BBC Sport.

“The most incredible thing after what we achieved last season is in this stage we are fighting for everything.

“So, most important for the club – more than winning one title – is having the mentality to be there until the end and fight for the titles in this stage of the season.

“That’s important because for the future, for the new players and managers who are coming, they will learn from this group of players, and this group of people, that we never give up and fight for every single game and title until the end.

“That is the best lesson.”
