Soccer – Spirit the key ingredient for Pep

Pep Guardiola expects the fighting qualities shown by his Manchester City side to be crucial in their bid to win the Champions league this season. The Spaniard was speaking after seeing Sergio Aguero strike right at the death to secure a 2-1 League Cup semi-final first leg win over Bristol City at the Etihad Stadium. And head coach Guardiola, whose side are 3/1 to be crowned champions of Europe for their first time in their history, believes that the determination displayed by the Citizens squad on the domestic front bodes well for their European campaign. He told reporters: "Without that spirit you can't win trophies in any competition in the world. "It is easy in the good moments to handle the situation, but it is even better in the bad moments when you find out how you react to those situations. "That is why we succeed so much in those situations and that is going to be really important, I would say essential, in competitions like the Champions League."
