John Stones: City stronger after past Champions League disappointments

City hold a 2-1 lead since the opening shock of our last four meetings and, although the manager believes the semi-final second leg to be the most difficult game in the competition, he is approaching the equality with confidence.


“I would say a few things [worry me], but at the same time, there are a lot of things I’m incredibly optimistic about, ”he said in his pre-match press conference.

“When I get to this point, I’m calmer than before. We practiced yesterday, everyone wants to play and we are going to play our game.

“The return leg of a semi-final is always the most difficult game. More than the final.

“We’re going to control our emotions by doing exactly what we need to do. This is what I’m looking for and [I’ll] try to convince the players that this is the best way to win.

“I think we’re going to have an incredible game and win the final, that’s my feeling.

“If the others are better, every time we’ve gone out I congratulate the opponent and try again.

“We don’t want to miss this opportunity. I have a feeling that we are going to do well.
