Guardiola: Winning the domestic treble is more difficult than Champions League

Pep Guardiola has claimed that winning the domestic treble in England is a greater achievement than winning the Champions League.

Guardiola’s Manchester City side thrashed Watford 6-0 in the FA Cup final to become the first men’s team to win England’s three major honours in a single season.

“I love the Champions League, but to [win the domestic treble] is more difficult than to win the Champions League,” Guardiola said afterwards.

Manchester City added the FA Cup trophy to their Premier League and League Cup crowns as well as the Community Shield they won in August.

“It’s one of the best seasons I have experienced as a manager,” Guardiola said.

“I wouldn’t say the best, but one of the best for sure.

“To be the first to win the treble means that if one team is able to do that then another team will repeat it sooner or later.

“Winning four titles is something incredible.”
