Pep Guardiola has stated that Manchester City can now visualize the treble after defeating Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes his side can now think of winning the treble this season after they progressed in to the Champions League final.

City will now face Italian side Inter Milan after their huge victory over the defending Champions Real Madrid at the Etihad Stadium.

Guardiola side are one match away from winning the Premier League and the Etihad side will face Chelsea this weekend.

City will also face Manchester rival Manchester United in the FA Cup final this season.

“Let me win the first two,” said Guardiola when asked about City’s chance of winning the treble. “In the Premier League we are close. We know we need one more game and I would say we play against our neighbours [Manchester United] and against an Italian team [Internazionale] in the finals. The season is really, really good, now we have to lift it. We are close and of course we are going to try.

“We are there, we can think about it, we can visualise it. We are three games away. One each of the competitions, we can do it.”
The former Barcelona manager stated that the disappointment they had last season against Madrid in the tournament played a crucial role to their victory last night.
“I had the feeling these last days that we had a mix of calm and tension to play this type of game,” Guardiola said. “After 10 or 15 minutes, I had the feeling that all the pain that we had during one year from what happened last season was there today.

“It was so hard and tough last season. In that moment, we had to swallow poison, and football and sport always gives you another chance. When the draw was Madrid, I said ‘Yeah I want it.’ I wanted it because I think today everything was there.”
