Pep Guardiola, Manchester City manager, has dropped the notion of the possibility for the club to win another treble.

Guardiola said this in a pre-match press conference on Thursday.

City will be kicking off their title defence on Friday in the 2023/24 English Premier League (EPL) season opener with newly promoted Burnley.

City put up a formidable performance wining the EPL, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League title.


“It feels like it finished yesterday but we start again,” Guardiola told journalists.

“I don’t think it will be possible to do what we did last season, it’s once in a lifetime. I said to the players forget about it.

“We climbed the highest mountain last season but we have come down that mountain now. We start from the same as everyone else, with the same intention and there will be a lot of difficulties to climb the mountain again.”

“What we have done remains in our hearts and minds but it’s over.

“The history speaks for itself but it is almost impossible to repeat.”

Recall on last Sunday, City lost to Arsenal penalties in the FA Community Shield.

On the chances for the City on Friday, Guardiola said,
“Normally the first games are difficult, especially against newly-promoted teams because they have nothing to lose and the energy, the dream to do a good season,” said Guardiola.


Apart from that, Vinny knows us well and he is doing an incredible job.

“He has changed the way Burnley play completely and they destroyed the Championship. It will be a tough, tough game.”
