Pep Guardiola sets managerial history with Man City treble


Pep Guardiola is the only coach to capture the treble with two separate squads.

The 2022–23 season’s trophy haul was completed by his Manchester City team with a 1-0 victory over Inter in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday night. Rodri scored the game-winning goal.

The Gunners surrendered the title after holding the top spot for 248 days, a record for a team that did not finish first. Man City managed to unseat Arsenal to reclaim first place in the Premier League this season.

The next week, they defeated rival Manchester United in the FA Cup final. The Citizens prevailed at Wembley thanks to a brace from Ilkay Gundogan either side of a penalty from Bruno Fernandes.

When Jock Stein’s Celtic team won on all fronts in 1966–1967, he became the first manager to secure the treble.

Then, two Dutch teams followed in the footsteps of Stein and Celtic, with Stefan Kovacs doing it with Ajax in 1971–1972 and Guus Hiddink with PSV in 1987–1988.

Hiddink’s triumph was followed by Sir Alex Ferguson’s victory with Manchester United in 1998–1999.

In 2008–09, during his first campaign as Barcelona’s manager, Guardiola captured his first triple crown by defeating Ferguson’s Manchester United in the Champions League final.

Next to complete the triple was his professional adversary Jose Mourinho, whose Inter team eliminated Barça from the Champions League on their way to victory the very next season.

After placing second in three different championships in 2011–12, Bayern Munich under Jupp Heynckes achieved a historic treble in 2012–13.

With a frightening front three of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Neymar, Luis Enrique led Barcelona to their second treble in 2014–15.

Midway through the 2019–20 season, Bayern Munich hired Hansi Flick as their new manager, and he was able to lead them to victories in the Bundesliga, DFB Pokal, and Champions League.

And Guardiola’s Man City are the most recent team to write their name into legendary history.
