Manchester City midfielder encourages his team to improve their Champions League results in the current season.

Manchester City

finished the group stage of the Champions League in the first place as they achieved a 3-0 victory over Marseille in their last game on Wednesday. Despite being successful in the domestic competitions, Manchester City are yet to win the

Champions League

trophy. Their semi-final defeat against Real Madrid in 2015-16 is still the club’s best result in European tournaments. In the last three seasons, Pep Guardiola’s team has been eliminated by Liverpool, Tottenham, and Lyon which have attracted criticism toward the team’s coach and his team’s performances in knock-out stage games. In a post-match interview with

BT Sport


Bernardo Silva

has spoken about the Citizens’ ambitions for performing better in the Champions League.

"It was a good game. We knew we have already got first spot in the group and we are already qualified but it's always very good to finish the group stage with a good win, 3-0 at home,

"It's a good start for us - we know it's not enough but it's a very good start. We're into the last 16 and our goal is to do better than we did in the last three seasons and that's what we will try to do."

Asked about Aguero’s return to the team, Silva responded:

"Very happy [to have Aguero back], everyone knows how important he is for us," Silva said.

"He is one of best players to ever play for this club, he's a goalscorer and a fantastic guy to have in the dressing room as

well. [It's] good to have him back."
