“Then not to qualify from the first round of the Champions League would be a huge blow for the club – and for us as well. We need to do something or otherwise next year it’s going to be new players - it’s going to be new everything.”

“That’s how we work when you play for a big team, a big club. You have to respond and show everyone you deserve to qualify.”

Manuel Pellegrini’s side are set to face Bayern at the Ethihad Stadium which could prove beneficial as they search for that all important three points.
