Guardiola’s Manchester City win the Champions League final thanks to Rodri’s 68th-minute goal win, the second English club that has won the treble said Guardiola: “The strength started winning the Premier League, then the FA Cup, and now we finish here.” City completed the treble with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Inter Milan in the Champions League final”.
Having already overhauled Arsenal to retain the Premier League trophy and beaten Man United to lift the FA Cup at Wembley, victory in Istanbul saw them match the achievement of their city rivals in 1999. Guardiola was in tears afterwards and cut an emotional, exhausted figure. This trophy is so difficult to win.” said Pep Guardiola.
“It could not be different and we knew it, firstly because they are really good. In the first half, we were so apprehensive. We cannot find the unchained man, John Stones. But it was a question of being long-suffering. I announced it at half-time, last time, in Porto, we were 1-0 down, now it’s a 0-0. We reshape some things but you have to be lucky in this contest. This contest is a coin throw. But we were there. I think it was written in the stars this season that it belonged to us and we did it”.
