Watch the Champs Leagues stars reveal all below:



On becoming Nissan’s new global ambassador, Gareth Bale said: “I’m thrilled to be working with Nissan on their partnership with the UEFA Champions League. Having won the tournament twice with Real Madrid C.F. the competition is very special to me and I know it takes a tremendous amount of hard work to win. It is one of the most exciting competition in the world, and I’m looking forward to sharing that excitement with the fans.” 

Sergio Agüero added: “The UEFA Champions League is such an exciting tournament which features some of the best teams, players and managers in the game. The week-in-week-out drama on and off the pitch makes it a great competition to be a part of as a player, and to watch as a fan.”

Speaking to Nissan, the official global automotive sponsor of the UEFA Champions League, Sergio Agüerorevealed Manchester City F.C. has learnt a lot from their UEFA Champions League campaign last season: Obviously you learn new things every year and above all in you acquire experience, what it really means to play those games in the Last Sixteen, Last Eight and obviously in the Semi-Final. I hope this year we can continue on the same path.” 

The Argentine striker also said that he and his Manchester City F.C. team-mates have big aspirations for thisseason, and stated they want to make it as far as possible in the competition: “Let’s hope we can make it as far as possible. Obviously it’s not easy but we have a great team.” 

The star striker certainly didn’t rule out reaching the Final this season, commenting on the investments and changes made at Manchester City F.C.:  “Our goal is to reach the Final, because the club invested a lot in hiring players, and a new project, with new managers.” 

Nevertheless Agüero admitted it may not be achievable this season: “The UEFA Champions League isn’t easy, but we are working. I don’t know whether it will be this year or the next one, but we are working on winning our first title.”         

Whilst in-form Real Madrid C.F. winger, Gareth Bale, revealed his team’s desire to make history in the UEFA Champions League this season, as they look to become the first team ever to win back-to-back titles: “I think the whole team believes that we can win the UEFA Champions League again. There's no reason why not, we've done it before. We're fully focused on that task this season, and we'll be doing everything we can to win the trophy again and hopefully make history.”

Although Bale admitted they’ll need a little luck to secure their twelfth UEFA Champions League title, and retain their status as European champions: “It's difficult to win the UEFA Champions League anyway, so to win it two times in a row obviously it's even more difficult. There's a lot of amazing teams playing and you need that bit of luck. But we've done it the once now, we have a chance to make history and hopefully we can do that.

“Obviously Real Madrid C.F. is known for winning Champion's Leagues. It's what the club is about and we all know how important it is, not just to the players but to the fans also. We’ll be trying our best for everybody involved to try and defend the title and get our twelfth UEFA Champions League.”
