When asked if Manchester City can replicate Manchester United’s historic 1999 treble, Pep Guardiola told reporters: “We are in control. We are leading in the Premier League right now.
“I don’t know if we will win but the destiny is in our hands. If United did it once, then it happened and someone else can do it.
“In September it is more difficult but there are two months left so it is possible. It’s not easy but you can do it. But it only happened once in a lifetime, that shows how difficult it is.”
The City manager added: “The difference at this club is that there has been a strategy for many years. It can be this way or another one.”
“This club has to aim. We can finish the season winning all the titles or zero but we have the consistency.”
City are likely to defend their Premier League title this term and are also in the running to potentially win the FA Cup and the Champions League.
Back in 1999, United pulled off a feat no other team has matched. It’s also worth noting that the Red Devils have won the Champions League thrice (1968, 1999 and 2008) – a title City are yet to claim.
