Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola delighted as his team response well against Manchester United to move closer to a treble this season.
Manchester City defeat Manchester United at Wembley stadium to claimed their seventh FA Cup crown.
Pep Guardiola is now eyeing on Champions League final against Inter Milan on June 10 as they bid to lift Europe’s premier competition for the first time in their history and emulate Man United’s Treble feat of 1999.
“We can now talk about the Treble. Of course we still have to win the Champions League.
We performed so well for our city and our fans.
“They follow man to man so tight and we didn’t expect them to defend so narrow. We found more spaces in the second half.
“Tomorrow and the next day they can have off.
We’ve then got three or four sessions to train for Inter Milan.
We’ll travel on Thursday morning after training.
“It was so important for us today. The FA Cup is so nice.
“I’m a Barcelona fan but I will love this club for the rest of my life. I know today we gave our fans a good gift to enjoy against our neighbours.”
Pep Guardiola reacts to Ilkay Gundogan performances.
“What a season he has had. The skills are there but he also had the mentality.
He plays the big games like they are friendlies, he can cope with the pressure.”
On John Stones:
“Incredible player. He’s played so well lately and has given the opportunity to play in this certain way. All of the guys were amazing.
“Stones has the quality to pass the ball and he can arrive into the attacking positions to control the play.”
