Pep Guardiola told his players on Tuesday to concentrate on their performance in Saturday's Champions League final irrespective of their past failures in Europe or domestic success.

Guardiola has five Premier League titles, two FA Cups, and four League Cups to his name at City, but the manager, who twice won the trophy with Barcelona, has not been able to lead Manchester City to a European victory.

City has never won Europe's top club championship and lost in the final to Chelsea in 2021, but they will be favorites to overcome Inter Milan this week and clinch a historic triple after previously winning the Premier League and FA Cup.

Before the Istanbul final, Guardiola remarked, "It's a dream to be here; we were there two years ago, but in a different circumstance. We're going to give it our all since we understand that the result depends on how you act during the next 90 minutes. It has nothing to do with history or whether they are superior to us.

"It's about what you have to do to outperform your opponent in 90 minutes." It doesn't matter if you performed the action during the group stage, quarterfinals, previous campaign, Premier League, or FA Cup.

The City manager praised Inter's structure and defence, noting that the Italian club had only surrendered three goals in six matches in this year's Champions League knockout campaign.

It is not easy to attack Inter's defensive system, so what we will try to do in the next few days is learn how to play with a lot of difficulties," Guardiola said.

Therefore, we will need to bring a lot of rhythm and patience; we won't be able to complete it in three or four passes. The correct pace must be understood.

They have terrific shape not just in terms of how they defend but also in terms of how well they handle the ball during transitions when they lead with the forwards. They have an extremely good approach that starts with custodian Andre Onana; therefore, our high pressing becomes difficult."

Kyle Walkar is doing good today - Pep Guardiola

Kyle Walker, who walked off the ground in the 95th minute of City's 2-1 FA Cup final victory over archrival Manchester United, has a back problem, according to Guardiola.

"Today he's doing better. Yesterday he wasn't doing well. We won't gamble, so we'll see, added Guardiola.
