The Premier League leaders, Manchester City are in exceptional form and therefore there is a lot of excitement around Pep Guardiola and his men chasing for the quadruple this season.
Recently Ukraine international Oleksandr Zinchenko shared how he feels that it is very much as he also gave examples of Bayern Munich doing it last season and also his current boss, Pep Guardiola doing it with FC Barcelona. However, when asked the same thing to their manager, Guardiola denied the claims and feels that it won’t happen.
Manchester City will feature in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg where they will face Borussia Monchengladbach. The Citizens hold a strong 2-0 lead and will look to finish it off at the Puskas Arena in Budapest. The match will take place in Budapest due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Apart from the Champions League and Premier League, City are in the finals of the Carabao Cup and will also face Everton in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup.
Therefore when asked about winning the quadruple Zinchenko said, “Of course. Bayern showed last year – they won everything, right? Barcelona did it as well the other year with Pep and I think, of course, everything is possible.
“We’ve got an unbelievable squad, the best players in the world. Definitely, why not?
“Inside the dressing room or inside the team I can see the hungry eyes, everyone is so hungry for the titles and that is what you want.”
However, it was Pep Guardiola next at the press conference and there he shared how none of the English clubs have ever managed to win four trophies and how it won’t happen this season as well.
“I am older than Mr Zinchenko, I have more experience and I don’t agree with him,” he said.
“Zinchenko just has to be worried about a good game tomorrow and going through. This is the only way. Four titles have never happened [in England] before and I think it is not going to happen. We just think about the next one and then Goodison Park.
“Hopefully the players can come back safe and well from the international break because we play for important things,” he added.
Guardiola’s men have a great chance of scripting history with the quadruple as they are in a comfortable position in the Premier League and are all set to progress through to the last eight of the Champions League. So now they need the team to stick together and hope that they don’t make the same mistakes from yesteryears
