Gundogan on winning the Champions League

Los Blancos would go on to win the entire competition that season, seeing off bitter rivals Atletico Madrid in the final.

Real Madrid have now won a staggering 13 Champions League trophies, six more than any other club.

Meanwhile, Man City are still going in search of their first Champions League trophy.

The Sky Blues don’t have the best record under Pep Guardiola in Europe’s most high-profile club competition, failing to make it past the last eight on three occasions.

And when speaking ahead of Real Madrid, City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan stated that despite Man City being a great team, if they don’t win the Champions League, there will always be something missing:

“The Champions League is maybe the most prestigious competition in the game and if you don’t win it, as much as we are a great team, you feel like there’s always something missing.

“Obviously, we try to do our best but it’s not something that you can talk about and then it comes. It’s something you have to try to achieve.” As quoted by Goal.
