One of the best coach in the world, Pep has suggested it of course will be possible for his team or Liverpool to complete a Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League treble this season because it has been done before.
Don’t forget that Manchester United in 1999 were the first and still only English club to complete it, seen as one of the ultimate feats in English football history,
Although, don’t forget that Guardiola himself has experience of it in Spain after leading Barcelona to league, cup and Champions League titles in 2009.
Now that Man City are top of the Premier League, and preparing to face Southampton in the FA Cup quarter-finals and into the last eight of the Champions League against Atletico Madrid, attention is starting to turn towards potentially doing a treble of their own.
For Pep Guardiola, the fact is has been done before is proof that it can be done again.
“If United did it, another team can do it,” he said at a press conference on Friday.
“To break a record is because someone has done it. When it happens – I think it will – it’s not easy, but you can do it,” he added.
Pep also added it is always a more likely possibility later in the season, when more games have been played and a treble is closer.
“In September or October it’s more difficult,” he explained. “Two months left, yeah it can be done. But it happened once in a lifetime.”
Meanwhile, the Klopp side also remain in the hunt for a treble – or even an unprecedented quadruple. After they have lifted the Carabao Cup, the Reds are now only one point behind City in the Premier League table, which promises for a tense final stretch of the title race, and are still in the FA Cup and UCL themselves.
