Pep Guardiola claims that Manchester City’s treble is “written in the stars” after their Champions League victory.

Manager Pep Guardiola claimed that Manchester City’s Champions League victory was “written in the stars” after his team won the Treble in Istanbul.

In addition to the Premier League and FA Cup championships they had already won this season, City defeated Inter Milan 1-0 to capture their first Champions League championship.

I’m drained, at ease, and content. Guardiola, who previously won the Triple with Barcelona, stated, “Winning is very hard.

“The stars had it planned. It is our property”

At the Ataturk Olympic Stadium, midfielder Rodri’s goal in the 68th minute—his second Champions League goal in 48 games—was sufficient to defeat Inter Milan.

“It makes me feel. a reality check. I don’t know how long these individuals around here waited,” Rodri told BT Sport.

Both they and we deserve it. We were quite close the last few years. All I want to say is thank you. It wasn’t simple. What a team we faced, the way they counterattacked and defended.

“We gave our all. This is how finals are. You can’t expect to perform at your usual level. Nervousness and feelings are present. We competed in a wild way. It’s a fantasy. There will never be another time like this.

After losing to Chelsea in the 2021 final, Manchester City was playing in their second final in three years.

They follow in the footsteps of their city rivals Manchester United, who accomplished the feat in 1999, to become only the second English men’s side to win the Triple Crown.

Guardiola won the European Cup as a player for Barcelona in 1992, but he claimed he did not realize what he had accomplished until the day after.

It will be a similar feeling following City’s success. It is an honor to stand with Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Champions League final will be held in London, according to our chairman, and I won’t reveal what I told him, according to Guardiola.

“Now is the moment to rejoice. As part of a victory parade, we will be traveling to Manchester on Monday afternoon on our coach with three trophies.

Only Guardiola and United icon Sir Alex Ferguson have won the Triple Crown with an English team.

It is a privilege for me to stand next to Sir Alex Ferguson. It is an honor, he told me in a mail this morning,” continued Guardiola.

“I’m supposed to win trebles every season, people say. Yes, I make a good manager. I enjoy this tournament because we won, it will go down in history, and the participants will be remembered forever.

“However, acknowledge the five Premier League titles earned in six years. Now more than ever, it’s critical that people remember what we accomplished. Perhaps a museum could be established where admirers could view the awards.

The outcome of the 115 financial allegations brought by the Premier League against City is still pending. Guardiola stated last month that he wants the accusations to be resolved “as soon as possible” and that both parties have rejected any financial misconduct.

After they won the Champions League, the manager in Istanbul lauded the impact of team owner Sheikh Mansour, who was there in the crowd.

“People from Abu Dhabi, specifically Sheikh Mansour, taking over the club is one of the primary reasons why we are where we are today. We wouldn’t be here without that. They are the most significant individuals, he declared.

They provide me unwavering support even when I lose this competition. I give my hierarchy and CEO enormous credit since in many clubs you are fired.

“Guardiola is the world’s best coach,”

Erling Haaland, a striker who joined City last summer, scored 12 goals in the Champions League this season, tying Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record set by Manchester United in 2002–03.

The 22-year-old Norwegian also scored 52 goals across all competitions, shattering the Premier League record of 36 goals in a season.

“In my wildest dreams, I would never think of this,” Haaland told BT Sport.

It demonstrates that a man from a small Norwegian village may succeed. Younger folks in my hometown have optimism because of it. It’s incredible.

“I will definitely want to do it again after a few days, when this calms down a bit and this feeling of winning this award wears off. Knowing myself, I can predict my thought patterns.

“We must uphold the accomplishments we have made this season. This is how it operates. Everything is forgotten within a month, so we have to start over.

Working with Guardiola, who won two Champions League trophies with Barcelona before leading City to their first, was “really special,” according to Haaland.

We get along well, and I’m eager for our friendship to grow even more in the upcoming season, he continued. “It’s a good place to be to be getting trained by the best coach in the world every single day.”

Haaland consoled midfielder Kevin de Bruyne after he had to leave the game in the first half due to a hamstring injury, almost two years after his presence was cut short in Chelsea’s defeat in the European final.

De Bruyne stated, “The past two months have been difficult. “My hamstring snapped because of all the troubles I was having with it.

However, the team was strong enough, so we prevailed. It is incredible that we have worked for this for so long.

“You hold the key to my dream,”

The biggest choice Guardiola made prior to the game was to omit England defender Kyle Walker from the starting lineup.

Walker had started all seven of City’s previous games, which included the FA Cup final victory over Manchester United and victories in both legs of the Champions League semi-final match against Real Madrid.

“Since I’m 33, I’ll always be disappointed when I’m not playing. For the younger guys, [my example is vital],” Walker told BT Sport.

Just before they left, I spoke. No pressure, I answered, “My dream is in your hands.” I have a lot of meaning in this club. I will always be grateful for having had the experiences I have had.

“I am overjoyed. I rarely find myself silent. My goal of achieving something with this club has been realized. It’s incredible to accomplish a triple.

“My parents are watching from the stands. It’s not simple from Sheffield, where I’m from. I recall the time my mother forgot to give the ice cream truck a pound. I’m really grateful to have this with them.

You dedicate your entire life to achieving this. I’m overjoyed. I don’t care that [in the final] I was terrible. Grealish told BT Sport that “to win the Treble with this bunch of players is so wonderful.

“Anyone who knows me is aware of how much I adore football, and this is what I have devoted my entire life to achieving. I get so upset seeing my relatives in the crowd.

“I just said, ‘I want to thank you,’ to the management. He has a great deal of faith in me. He is brilliant.
