Multiple trophy-winning coach, Pep Guardiola has said that his club Manchester City may not win the treble again.
City became the second club to win the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup.
Guardiola is not new to the treble gang as he won a similar feat with Barcelona in 2008-09.
When asked about his expectations for the new season, this is what he said:
“It’s once in a lifetime. I said to the players: ‘Forget about it. We climbed the highest mountain last season with what we have done.’”
“But the last two days we came down from the mountain and we start from there, everyone with the same intention. There will be a lot of difficulties to climb the mountain as high as possible – we’ll see.”
“Our football, our behaviour, our mentality will dictate how the season will be. In football, in sport, what we have done remains in our hearts and our minds, how nice it was, but it’s over.”
“Every season we start from zero again but history speaks for itself when you achieve something that we have done – it’s almost impossible to repeat.”
“We have to be aware of that and hopefully our fans, like ourselves, can understand how difficult it was and so we just try to do a good performance at Burnley, and after Newcastle, and after Sheffield [United]. Game by game, no more than that.”
“We have to challenge ourselves. If people expect I’m the only one who has to do it, this would not be possible. Let’s go step by step. Recover who we are. This job is short. Use every season as an opportunity.”
