Man City boss believes all elite clubs win because they spend money like they do.

Manchester City

defeated

Mönchengladbach

in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League. It was also the Citizens’ 19th consecutive victory in all competitions.

This extraordinary performance of City has made them one of the main contenders for the Champions League title.

In an interview after the victory over Mönchengladbach, when Man City boss

Pep Guardiola

was asked about the reason behind their good performance and results, he sarcastically said that it’s all because they spend lots of money.

Now, in a pre-match press conference, the Spaniard has clarified what he meant by his previous comments.

He said:

"We have this story behind us it will always be with us.

"Not just one journalist but many say the only reason why we is because of the money, it should be true, we can accept it. There are other clubs that spent and have higher budgets than us."

"That’s come for us. I would say, we were not there, in the last 30 or 40 years playing with elite clubs.

"When United won it was because they spent more money than the other ones the same with Barcelona and Madrid. I don’t feel we are much different to the top elite clubs in the world in those terms but we have to accept it and do the best job we can."
