Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he only wants to break club records if they are accompanied by trophies.
City beat Burnley to equal a club record 11-straight wins and cement their spot at the top of the Premier League, but Guardiola appeared keen to keep everyone’s feet on the ground.
“The record is good if you lift something, titles or a trophy. It means a lot. Of course it is not easy to win 11 in a row, so it’s good.
“Burnley have won in amazing stages this season.
“Another good performance. In the second half it was amazing how good we played. A lot of control and after the second and third goal the game is over. I’m so happy to continue our winning mentality.
“Another clean sheet is so important. We have the ability to score a lot of goals. We had a lot of chances and the keeper made some good saves. We were stable in front and back.”
Another record was levelled on a good day for City, with striker Sergio Aguero becoming the club’s goalscoring record, and Guardiola joked that the Argentine should be thanking his team-mates for the achievement.
“Aguero should pay a tribute to us,” he said. “He should invite us to dinner maybe. One more goal, it’s going to happen sooner or later.
