This is one of the highest moments in my managerial career- Pep Guardiola

The owners of Manchester City have been very keen on getting their hands on the Champions League trophy right from 2008. When the Abu Dhabi takeover began.in 2008 when a lot of money was poured into the club as big investment. The owners will feel that the fruits of the investment have begun to pay off. If the Pep Guardiola coached side beats Inter Milan at Istanbul, then they will complete a historic treble.

The Treble will be winning the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League. This will put City on par if the treble happens along the lines of Manchester United who had completed the historic achievement in 1998-99. By eliminating Real Madrid in the semi-final. It looks like City will get their maiden UEFA Champions League title which will be great moment of joy for all City fans.

"One of the highest," Guardiola said when he was asked to rank this win in his managerial career. "You cannot always win, but you can try," added Guardiola.  "We have elevated this club to be there every year. This is what makes a big team, that come May or June you are always there fighting for titles." He further elaborated.
