Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has sent a warning and a plea to his club’s fans as he warns of bad times at the Etihad.
The Spaniard managed to make history with Manchester City by winning the treble last season, the three biggest competitions the club has played in (Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup).
Only their rivals Manchester United have managed to do so in history.Now, the Spanish strategist warns of the coming of more difficult times. He said that “it is not normal to win so many trophies”, and has sent a warning to the fans.
“We won a lot, and in the future you have to understand that it was an exception. It’s not normal to win the treble, five Premier League titles in six years. Keep enjoying it, but when the bad times come, this season or next season, you have to be with us,” said Guardiola.
This news comes a few days after the “trial of the century” was set in the world of football, as it was called by the English media. Manchester City will go to court over 115 charges of breaching Financial Fair Play (FFP).
The two sides agreed on a date for City to appear in court, which will take place in the autumn of 2024. Whether these are the bad times Guardiola is referring to remains to be seen.
