CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Guardiola: "The Champions League is not an obsession for us"

The Manchester City head coach was speaking to members of the media ahead of his side's Champions League game against Greek giants Olympiakos.

Manchester City have a perfect record in Group C after three games and Guardiola said Wednesday's clash offered them the opportunity to return to winning ways and take a step towards the next phase of the competition.

"It's important... also to recover our feelings. To be able to win games is important. We can leave this competition until February and focus on others, especially the Premier League," Guardiola added.

"At the same time we know how difficult it is and if we're able to get results we travel to Porto and then have (Olympique de) Marseille here. One step at a time but at the same time to recover, to come back and create good feelings."
