Ferran Soriano, the CEO of Manchester City, has stated that the club’s executives are not “obsessed” with winning the Champions League.

The 2021 final featured the reigning Premier League winners, who fell to Chelsea.

Lastseason, Pep Guardiola’s team was seconds away from reaching their second final in as many years when a late Real Madrid defeat destroyed their prospects of facing rivals Liverpool in the grand finale in Paris.

Soriano has emphasized how City have only been unfortunate thus far in their Champions League adventure, indicating that pressure to win the competition is not coming from the clubs administration.

“We don’t make this [the ChampionsLiverpool League] the center of our aims because of what I stated; luck plays a role in the Champions League because there are a few games that you can have a bad game in, in the semi-finals and you’re out,” Soriano said on the Dr Football Podcast.

Mane’s six-year spell on Merseyside came to an end with the Reds’ recent completion of a £35 million transfer to Bayern Munich.

Darwin Nunez was signed by Liverpool from Benfica before Liverpool let the Senegal international leave.

Dean Saunders was perplexed by Liverpool’s choice to allow Mane to depart Anfield even though they received more money than what they paid Southampton for him in 2016 and had one year left on his contract.

The former Red questioned the quality of the Bundesliga and claimed he did not understand why Mane would have wanted to leave Liverpool.

Saunders had said to talkSPORT last week, “I’m still perplexed as to why he’s gone. Why would you quit Liverpool when everyone likes you—including your teammates and manager?

“You’re playing in the best front-three of your life,” the coach said. There will never be a better team than the one he is now on.
