Coach Pep Guardiola, who led Manchester City to its first-ever English Premier League (EPL) 4th consecutive victory, left room for a ‘new start’.

Manchester City won the championship by beating West Ham United 3-1 in the 2023-2024 EPL final round 38 home game held at Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the 20th (Korean time).

There was a fierce competition with Arsenal for the championship, but as in the previous season, Manchester City held a fierce concentration at the end and went on a 7-game winning streak to take the trophy on their own.

Man City achieved the great feat of winning the championship for four consecutive seasons starting from the 2020-2021 season.

There has never been a team that has won four games in a row in the English first division.

Coach Guardiola’s Manchester City now seems worthy of being praised as the strongest team in English professional soccer history.

Coach Guardiola has lifted a total of 17 trophies since taking office at Manchester City in 2016.

In the 2018-2019 season, it became the first team to win the EPL, the English Football Association (FA) Cup, and the League Cup.

Last season, they defeated Inter Milan (Italy) in Istanbul, Turkey, and won the UEFA Champions League (UCL) for the first time in the club’s history.

After playing the final game against West Ham on this day, Coach Guardiola confessed, “After the Istanbul game last year, I thought, ‘It’s over. There’s nothing left.'”

He continued, “But the contract remained. I started to think, ‘No one has won four games in a row (EPL), but let’s give it a try.'” He said, “Now, I feel like it’s over again. What’s the next step?” “He said.

He added, “When all is said and done, it’s hard to find motivation. Right now, I don’t know exactly what motivation is left.”

As it appears that there is nothing more to achieve at Manchester City after achieving an unprecedented feat of four consecutive wins, it is said that he may leave the team when the current contract period, which runs until 2025, ends.

Coach Guardiola also said in an interview with a broadcaster, “The reality is, I am closer to leaving than to staying,” and “I talked to the club, and now I think I want to stay at Manchester City. I will stay next season. However, (I signed a contract) “It remains to be seen whether we will be together for 8 to 9 years (extended),” he said.

There is more left for Manchester City to achieve this season.

Manchester City will play the FA Cup final against Manchester United at 11pm on the 25th.

If they win here too, Manchester City will win both the EPL and FA Cup for two consecutive seasons.

Coach Guardiola said, “I heard that there is no team that has won the EPL and FA Cup in two consecutive seasons,” and added, “I want the players to enjoy just two or three days and then prepare again for the FA Cup final. All they have to do is work as hard as possible.” said. 스포츠토토
