Pep Guardiola’s recent comments about watching Manchester United’s treble-winning side as a child have left football fans baffled. The Manchester City manager, who is hoping to replicate Sir Alex Ferguson’s 1998/99 team by winning the FA Cup and Champions League titles to go with their Premier League trophy, claimed to have been at the final as a “little boy”. However, at the time of the treble triumph, Guardiola was 28 years old and captain of Barcelona. The comments have been ridiculed by fans on social media, with many pointing out his age in 1999. Despite the confusion, Guardiola is focused on achieving the treble with Manchester City and is gearing his team up for their final Premier League game of the season before facing Manchester United in the FA Cup final and Inter Milan in the Champions League final.
