Manchester City has qualified for the quarter finals of the UEFA Champions League, a first in the history of the club.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side booked their place in Friday’s quarter final draw with a 3-1 aggregate victory over Dynamo Kyiv.

A goalless draw on the night was enough to see City safely into the last eight of Europe’s elite competition for the first time in the club’s history.

Reacting to the feat achieved, the Chilean said: “We are very happy for the achievement because it’s important for this club to improve every season.


“The last two seasons we were unlucky to play against Barcelona in the round of 16. We now arrive in the best eight teams in the competition for the first time and we will see how far we can go.

“We had a very difficult group with teams from the best leagues in Europe and we won it. We are now more experienced for winning the group and this means we are better prepared to go further.”

Manuel Pellegrini will be replaced by Pep Guardiola at the end of the season and definitely it seems that the Chilean tactician will be signing off on a high note.
