Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he’s “99.99%” sure his team won’t repeat last season’s treble.
Manchester City lifted the Premier League, Champions League, and FA Cup last season and are favourites to win them this season.
Man City will move to the top of the Premier League table if they beat Everton on Saturday. They will face Copenhagen in the Champions League round of 16 and have reached the FA Cup fifth round.
Guardiola said at a press conference: “Sextuple, ‘seventuple’? It’s a fairytale. It’s more complicated than that.
“We have 99.99 per cent possibility that we are not going to win the treble because it has never ever ever been done. The chances to do it again are like this (shows tiny gap between thumb and index finger) – minimal.
“If it was easy, another team – (Manchester) United in that time – would have done it again. It’s not easy.
“Everything is so difficult in this business. What we have done in the past is absolutely no guarantee of anything.
“What I like is that we are still there. We are close to the top of the league, we are in the other competitions.
“Hopefully we will arrive in March and April with the same feeling and if we have the same feeling, we will fight for the titles in May. This is the target.”
