While some statisticians may give the same number of titles to the Catalan and Romanian, it has been reported by MARCA that Lucescu’s Serie B win with Brescia in 1991/92 was not taken into account.

Pep achieved his second treble in history, the first being with Barcelona in 2008/09.

His conquest of the Premier League, FA Cup, and the Champions League this season has cemented his status as one of the great figures in football this season.

He had been unable to win the Champions League tournament since the 2010/11 season when Barcelona hoisted it at Wembley.

After winning the Champions League with City, he is now second on the list of most trophies won as a manager.
