Pep Guardiola could lead Manchester City to an unprecedented treble on Saturday but has admitted his team must win the Champions League to be considered among the greats.

Manchester City midfielder missed much of the title triumph but an FA Cup final win over Watford would offer consolation
Kevin De Bruyne offers a blunt response when considering whether he has any sympathy for Liverpool after they accumulated 97 points and still finished one behind the champions Manchester City.
“No,” he says. “It’s a remarkable effort but it means that we were just better than them in the end. I don’t feel sorry for them because I don’t think they’d feel sorry for us. I don’t think anybody felt sorry about the way we went out of the Champions League.”Continue reading...
- Fri, 17 May 2019 15:54:19 +0000: Pep Guardiola responds to criticism of Manchester City plane song – video - Liverpool | The Guardian
Pep Guardiola has apologised to anyone offended by the chant sung on the plane carrying his Manchester City side back from their title win in Brighton. In the song it mentions Liverpool fans being 'battered on the streets' and being 'victims of it all'. Guardiola's side have denied it was in reference to the Hillsborough disaster or Sean Cox. He said: 'We were happy for ourselves – it was not about the tragedy that happened to Liverpool people.

Club’s reaction to footage showing staff taking delight in lyrics that cause distress among Liverpool fans is a reminder we all can – and should – do better
It did not take long for the most dazzling of Premier League title races to be plunged into a row between Liverpool and Manchester City supporters, over a City supporters’ song being taken up on a plane carrying players and staff on their gleeful flight back from Brighton with the trophy.
It was then startling to learn the club had issued a statement wholly defending the song, which glories in Liverpool misfortune, including their supporters being “battered in the streets” and being “victims of it all”.Continue reading...
- Wed, 15 May 2019 17:17:55 +0000: Why Sheffield Wednesday cannot be charged over Hillsborough - Liverpool | The Guardian
Wednesday’s then safety officer, Graham Mackrell, has been convicted over the disaster but the club, to the families’ despair, is immune to prosecution
Bereaved Hillsborough families’ last sight of accountability from the football establishment for the deaths of 96 people at an FA Cup semi-final was the then Sheffield Wednesday secretary and safety officer, Graham Mackrell, driving away in a taxi from Preston crown court on Monday having been fined £6,500. Mackrell was convicted of having criminally breached his safety duties when he allocated dangerously few turnstiles – seven – for all 10,100 people with standing tickets to support Kenny Dalglish’s brilliant Liverpool team against Brian Clough’s Nottingham Forest in the sunshine of 15 April 1989.
Mackrell said in a statement after Monday’s sentencing hearing that the judge, Sir Peter Openshaw, had “recognised” that his negligence “did not cause or contribute to” people dying. Openshaw did say that while Mackrell’s criminal offence was not “a direct cause” of the deaths, it was a direct cause of the crush at the turnstiles, which “set the scene” for the deadly crush inside on the terrace’s central pens.Continue reading...
