FA Cup Final – Man City 6-0 Watford
Manchester City won the treble this season with both domestic Cups and the Premier League. Haters can hate from Man United and other clubs in England, but never in English football’s history a club had won the treble.
A season for the ages
The season, Guardiola’s men have accomplished, has been fantastic and winning everything in England had no antecedents. the best two teams in the world are, arguably, Liverpool and Man City [no offense to Tottenham and FC Barcelona].
The Spaniard coach comments on another trophy won:
“We have finished an incredible year. To all the people at the club a big congratulations, especially the players because they are the reason why we have won these titles.
It’s not been done before in this country. One team is going to do it again, because if we were able to do that then another team can do it. It’s one of the best seasons I’ve experienced as a manager – I wouldn’t say ‘the best’ but one of the best for sure.
To have gone ten months in all competitions and be the first team to do that is incredible. It means we have been consistent every three days.
I love the Champions League but it is more difficult to do what we have done than to win the Champions League. It’s not easy being there every three days. We lacked a little bit of energy but it’s normal. It’s been so tough this week. We could not have had more energy but we kept it at the right time.
On keep competing:
We have to remember: we won the Premier League by one point from Liverpool. We are not in a position to be relaxed. Liverpool showed us the standard we have to face. Always in a game situation, you can improve – but I am satisfied!
This season, we came from the previous season of 100 points and the Carabao Cup and we still did it. You just have to do it.
We know each other better and we know our standards. We can’t think too much about winning four titles in one season – it’s incredible but we must not think about how many. We’ll come back from the summer, when some players have the Nations League and the Copa America and we don’t know how they’ll come back – like this season with the World Cup – and take things game by game.
We’ll prepare well and we will see, but now we are not able to think about the future. Of course, we don’t have to forget what we have achieved. The standard is incredible – 100 points last season and 98 this season, and we won all titles apart from the Champions League.
“Thank you so much to everybody for their incredible commitment and for following us and what we believe in.”
