By Thys Khiba – Spanish football manager Josep “Pep” Guardiola confirmed his Manchester City team are now focusing on winning the Treble as they moved to within three games of the historic achievement.

Guardiola is looking forward to do what their neighboursManchester United did in 1999 by being the only English team to have won the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League in a single season.

He said it is okay for Man City players to start visualising it.

Man City are now going to play in two cup finals after dismantling Real Madrid 4-0 in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final. The team secured a 5-1 aggregate win.

Brazilian footballer and Manchester City goalkeeper, EdersonMoraes made some outstanding saves to keep City’s clean sheet. Right back defender, Kyle Walker managed to keep Real Madrid Vinicius quiet all game with some world-class defensive play.

Portuguese footballer, Bernardo Silva and English footballer, Jack Grealish were excellent in keep Manchester City in shape. Even though Bernardo made some rash decisions early on, two goals speak for themselves. Grealish had one of the best games as a Man City player as he terrorised Carvajal.

We’re closer. Let me win the first two!

“In the Premier League we are close, we need one more game. And I would say when we play against our neighbours and in the final of the Champions League against an Italian team, be calm.

“The season is really good already with what we have done. Now we have to lift the trophies but we’ve had so much joy and fun with our people this season. We made our fans happy all around the world. They saw a good team playing. This is the biggest compliment. But we are going to try,” said Guardiola.

City has played 23 games unbeaten and won their last 15 at the Etihad Stadium. The team will play Inter Milan in the Champions League final in Istanbul, Turkey on 10 June.
