    Who is the Ultimate Champion: Ferguson or Guardiola?” – A Debate on their Greatest Achievements

    The Treble: Manchester City’s Chance to Join Ranks with Iconic Teams

    Manchester United made history in 1999 when they won the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League in one season. Since then, no English team has achieved this feat. However, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City is now just a game away from joining their city rivals as treble winners.

    If they beat Inter Milan in Istanbul on Saturday, Manchester City will become only the second English club to win all three major titles in one year. Furthermore, Guardiola would achieve his second treble after doing so with Barcelona back in 2009.

    Former Brighton striker Glenn Murray told Bewinner that he believes this current Manchester City side is better than Sir Alex Ferguson’s historic 1999 squad:

    “They are better than the Manchester United Treble-winning team of 1999,” Murray said. “And I say that reluctantly as I was a United fan as a kid.”

    City Chases Quadruple but European Sweep Remains Most Coveted Prize

    Last year saw Man City earn themselves domestic glory by winning their third consecutive Premier League title followed by an FA Cup triumph against Watford at Wembley Stadium. However great these accomplishments were for Man CIty fans alike, it did not compare to lifting Europe’s elite trophy – The UEFA Champions league; which still eludes them despite numerous attempts over recent years.

    This season could see them make history once again if they clinch four trophies including; Community Shield (won), Carabao Cup (won), Premier League (likely) and the Champions League (hopeful). It is important to note that only one team in Europe has achieved this feat, Celtic back in 1967.

    Guardiola’s men will be looking to become the 10th European side to achieve an unprecedented treble. The other teams on this list include Ajax, PSV Eindhoven, Inter Milan and Barcelona.

    Is This Manchester City Side Better Than Pep’s All-Conquering Barcelona?

    The Catalan coach won his first-ever treble with FC Barcelona back in 2009 which included La Liga, Copa Del Rey and UEFA Champions league trophies; a feat he repeated once again with Bayern Munich before arriving at Man City.

    The question now arises if this current Manchester City team can surpass even Guardiola’s iconic Barca side? What do you think?
