Pep Guardiola and his side Manchester City are currently in Germany ahead of their Champions League last 16 tie with Schalke.
The English champions are in contention for four trophies this season and will be looking to make their continental ambition count.
During a pre-match conference, Nigerian journalist Omar Akatugba, made it known to the ex-Bayern Munich boss of his massive popularity in the West African country before chipping in a cheeky question about his achievements.
Akatugba then asked the former Barcelona boss if he would ever win the Champions League again without Lionel Messi, Xavi Hernandez and Andreas Iniesta.
The former Barcelona manager was taken aback with the admiration he got from fans in Nigeria but was startled at the debate of ever winning the elite competition with such players.

"I'm sorry, I was lucky, I agree with them."
