The Premier League winners fell just short in Europe’s elite club competition last term as they were beaten by Chelsea in the final in May.
Guardiola hopes his players – as they did in bouncing back from their disappointing quarter-final loss to Lyon in 2020 to reach the final – can turn that adversity into a source of motivation.
Midfielder Rodri echoed Guardiola’s feelings on the subject.
The Spaniard said: “We did a great season. We were proud of what we achieved.
“It was the first time in our history that we arrived into a final and all the players in the squad have a little more ambition and experience every year. No regrets about that.
“We’re going to learn from this experience.”
