“We’ll worry about Hoffenheim first and, if we get momentum, anything is possible,” Kompany said ahead of the game

“We have to deal with the fact we lost against Lyon, never mind winning the Champions League. If we get momentum then anything is possible.

“All I know is that it’s the last step that we haven’t achieved yet. The club is always aiming to progress. There is nothing left to achieve, but it takes time.

“I don’t want to put pressure on the manager here, for the next few years, but we will see and do our best.”

He added that “Every single year that you lose you just have to start again, but we don’t want to think about the past – we just have to play at our level. You can’t ask for much more than that.

“I’d love to win a European trophy with City, but I’m being realistic, it’s such a tough competition to win.

“It’s okay to say we want to win it but there are seven or eight other teams thinking the same. They have just as big claim – if not a bigger claim – than us.”
