Stones admits Man City’s quadruple ‘dream’

John Stones has admitted that Manchester City are dreaming of winning an unprecedented ‘quadruple’ of major honours.

Pep Guardiola’s side face Tottenham in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie on Wednesday night, but must turn around a 1-0 deficit to progress to the last four.

City sealed League Cup success with a win over Chelsea in February, and will face Watford in the FA Cup final in May as they bid for a clean sweep of major trophies.

Guardiola’s side are also looking to become the first side since Manchester United in 2009 to retain the Premier League title, and will be crowned champions should they win their five remaining league fixtures.

England international Stones admits the prospect of winning the quadruple is on the player’s minds, describing achieving the feat as a ‘dream’.

Speaking in Man City’s pre-match press conference ahead of tonight’s Champions League quarter-final second leg against Spurs, Stones admitted:

“We are still on for the quadruple, and that is the dream we are trying to achieve and are fighting for every day,” he said.

“If you don’t dream, then you are not going to get anywhere near it.

“It comes from within everyone. We have this belief and ambition to do it. I don’t think a lot of things are impossible.”
