What happened

Rodri was the match-winner for Man City as the Spaniard netted in the 68th minute.

It was not a comfortable final for Pep’s side as things had been expected. Inter Milan was surprisingly the better side, while the EPL giants could not be as good as they had done in the defeat of Real Madrid or Bayern Munich.

The Serie A representative missed a few gilt-edged opportunities to restore parity incredibly late in the game, with Romelu Lukaku blocking Federico Dimarco’s header.

However, City clung on to their lead and are now European champions for the first time in history.

Pep’s quotes on Real Madrid’s number of UCL titles

During the post-match interview, the manager who won his second treble and is now among coaches who win the UCL with two different teams, joked as he called out Los Blancos:

“Real Madrid? We are just 13 trophies away from them, just 13, so be careful Real Madrid because we are on our way. If you sleep a little bit we will catch you. We cannot compare. Now we have the first…”, Pep said while smiling.

With Real Madrid holding a record 14 Champions League titles, Man City’s boss’ comment serves as an lighthearted warning shot to the Spanish giants, indicating that Man City is determined to close the gap.

The Spanish manager guided Madrid’s rivals Barcelona to Champions League triumphs in 2009 and 2011, and now finally won the big-ear trophy with English side Man City.

He has finished the 2022/23 season incredibly, won the Premier League, FA Cup and now the UCL.
