Pep Guardiola plans new era as Man City target Champions League legacy

They sang along to "We Are The Champions" with Pep Guardiola's 

Right arm around Kevin de Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan's left arm around Ilkay Gundogan. 

As the rock anthem played over the Ataturk Stadium, he might have found himself in 

an appropriate place among his players. Guardiola has taken seven seasons at 

Manchester City to become champions of Europe. Both De Bruyne and 

Gundogan have been his constant companions, the Belgian the last survivor of 

Manuel Pellegrini's 2016 semifinalists, the German his first signing.

Both the vice-captain and the captain have been disappointed. 

As a result, they were able to savor the pleasure.

There has been an inevitability that City will conquer Europe. 

Despite turning 32 and 33 this summer, De Bruyne and 

Gundogan could have been forgiven for feeling they had no guarantees of glory.
