“I am incredibly happy for this club, for this chairman and for the fans, everyone,” Guardiola told BT Sport after seeing his side seal reach the Champions League semi-finals for only the second time.

“It is the second time in the semi-finals, so it is not history in the club, but we start to build it,” continued Guardiola, whose side flirted with elimination on away goals after Jude Bellingham’s opener on Wednesday, before sealing the tie through a Riyadh Mahrez penalty and Phil Foden’s finish.

“We were brilliant, except for the first 10 minutes where they were good.

“I’m incredibly happy to be in the semi-finals, to be one of the best four teams in Europe, to be against big, strong teams and we will try to be good.”

He added: “Now, I don’t want to think for one second about PSG. I want to celebrate. Dinner with the staff and the team. I don’t know which wine, it will be a good wine for sure.”
