"My mistake was being not able to convince them to do that. I want to help a new club be stable in Europe", the Spaniard said. At this level, we have to play for more than 45 minutes. City came out firing and took the lead on aggregate after Leroy Sane scored from close range after a run and shot from Raheem Sterling was parried at his door by the Monaco keeper.
Guardiola's charges pushed for a second goal that would see them advance, but Monaco managed to hold out till the full-time to book their spot in the last 16 on the away goals rule.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says his team will go out to attack AS Monaco in Wednesday's UEFA Champions League second leg clash in France, while insisting he will never return to coach Barcelona. "It would be tiring for us to think about running the clock down, that would be a huge mistake, to think about what we have done [already]", he said. "I don't know another way".
"We're ahead in the league, through to the League Cup final, in the French Cup quarters, everyone is in a good frame of mind", Jardim said following Saturday's 2-1 win over Bordeaux. Every single player in the first half under-performed.
"The second half didn't reflect the whole scoreline".

Gold Coast will host in 2018 but she said it was unlikely the same city would go back-to-back. Durban 2022 would have been the first staging of the Commonwealth Games in Africa.
Pep Guardiola denied Manchester City's defence was to blame for their Champions League elimination as the manager stated it occurred because all of his players "were not there" in the first half against Monaco. We knew they had quality players, we knew they had unsafe players.
Mbappe is very unlikely to come cheap and I've always thought the Gunners should look to sign an experience striker rather than yet another future star. Kylian Mbappe and Fabinho both found space inside the box to score, while Tiemoue Bakayoko was unmarked as he headed home Monaco's third - and decisive - goal. The total of 8 goals scored in the match broke the record for most goals in a round-of-16 game of Champions League.
"But the most important thing is to defend better than we did in the first leg".
Once again, Diego Simeone will try to lead his team to the finals of this competition.
Strengthening the defence was known to be a priority last summer, and splashing the cash on John Stones, who had already begun to show his error-prone tendencies towards the end of his Everton career, was not going to do the trick on its own. "I've seen enough to think we have a bright future with him but, from an expectation point of view, we probably expected more this season than we are going to get".
