Manchester City Coach Pep Guardiola points to Inter as an example that “if one day you sleep a little bit, you’ll be in the Europa League”.
The English champions secured top spot in their group last night, but on Tuesday the Nerazzurri went out after drawing at home to PSV.
“The quality of players in Europe means everybody has good teams,” Guardiola said at his post-match Press conference.
“Big, big teams are out. Inter is an exceptional team and they’re in the Europa League. Many, many good, top clubs will be there.
“If one day you sleep a little bit, you’ll be in the Europa League. That’s why I’m so glad to be in the Last 16.
“From my point of view when a team like Man City goes through, it’s an incredible success.”
