Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has challenged to ‘dominate Europe’ after booking their place in the Champions League final.
City tore to shreds at the Etihad, inflicting a 4-0 defeat on Carlo Ancelotti’s side to book a spot in next month’s final against Inter Milan.
It’s City’s chance to finally get their hands on Europe’s ultimate prize, having lost the 2021 final to rivals in Porto.

‘There’s only one English team that’s dominated Europe and that’s Liverpool in the late 70s and early 80s,’ the former Reds and defender said
‘Man City are about to win a third league title on the trot, but nobody’s ever done four, so they’re up there with the absolute best.

‘But for the quality they have in terms of the manager, on the pitch and their finances – they can buy who they want virtually – they’ve got to be looking at trying to dominate Europe.’
