Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has come out to joke that he would end his managerial career if the club repeats its treble feat in 2023-24. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, people should forget about City winning the treble twice in a row because it is an extremely difficult thing for any football team to do.
Pep added that there is a reason even Sir Alex Ferguson’s great team could not win the treble consecutively.
His words, “No, no, I think that is a mistake. The Treble? Forget about it. If we win the Treble again I retire, that’s it.
It’s extremely difficult. How many incredible teams have there been in England? Just once with Sir Alex [Ferguson] and ourselves last season [have won the Treble]. When we spoke [to the players], it [the message] was prepare well, time for first game.
We will see, our level. The competition itself dictates how your level us. The challenge is higher. September, October, November, thinking about the titles? Forget about it, it’s a big mistake.”
