Guardiola believes Champions League triumph was destined

0 8

“We were destined for this… it is rightfully ours,” proclaimed Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola. His words echoed the belief that their triumph in the Champions League final against Inter Milan, securing the prestigious Treble, was fated.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola expressed his belief that his team’s triumph in the Champions League final against Inter Milan, securing the coveted Treble, was a destiny foretold.

In a scorching evening at Istanbul’s Ataturk Olympic Stadium, Rodri calmly sealed the victory with a decisive goal in the 68th minute.

This historic achievement placed Manchester City alongside their arch-rivals, Manchester United, as only the second team to accomplish the feat of conquering the Champions League, Premier League, and FA Cup in a single season, mirroring United’s iconic achievement in 1999.

Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Guardiola said: “It’s so difficult to win it.

“You have to be lucky. This competition is a coin.

“It was written in the stars. It belongs to us.

“We weren’t at our best level. After the World Cup, the team made a step forward and we were there. It wasn’t our best performance.

“I don’t have any energy to think about next season, it’s impossible. We need a break. It’s too long.

“Our players have international games now. Uefa and Fifa, think about it. The Premier League finished two or three weeks ago, now people have to come back. It’s too much.

“We will start from zero next season.

“We’re going to celebrate in the hotel with family and friends. Monday the parade is in Manchester. With this competition, the Treble is so difficult.”
