Man City can become just the eighth European club to win a continental treble by beating Inter on Saturday. What kind of company will they be keeping?
In European history, only seven teams have won the European Cup, as well as their domestic top flight and premier cup competition – but it is becoming more common.
Prior to that, Sir Alex Ferguson’s famous Manchester United side of 1999 had been the only team since Guus Hiddink’s PSV some 11 years earlier to have won all three trophies in the same season.
Here’s the full roll call of teams Manchester City would be joining – and how those previous history makers managed it.
When Hansi Flick took over Bayern Munich in November 2019 he inherited an ailing team who had underperformed under Niko Kovac, his former boss. Less than a year later, he had won everything with them. Nineteen wins and a draw from their final 20 Bundesliga matches marked an astonishing run of domestic form to win the league at a canter, and they made light work of Europe too.
