The celebrations continue for Manchester City's UEFA Champions League title triumph. Despite a heavy match, Rodri's shot gave them the title against Inter Milan and established them as the best in Europe, to the full admiration of the entire sporting world.

Josep Guardiola is considered a genius by his players. He won titles in the three teams he has managed and has become one of the best coaches in the history of football, ahead of legends such as Bob Paisley or Zinedine Zidane, who also achieved historic records.

Meanwhile, Carlo Ancelotti had to watch the game from home and plan the new Real Madrid season. He already has several interesting signings such as Jude Bellingham and Kai Havertz, but the obsession to have Kylian Mbappé would be leading him to put a stratospheric sum of money on the table for the Frenchman.

The comparison between Guardiola and Ancelotti is beginning to emerge. They will meet again in the next edition of the Champions League. Surely also in the final phase, where City will want to return to the final and be twice champions, which has not happened since Real Madrid achieved it last decade.

What record would Guardiola take away from Ancelotti?

Josep Guardiola, by winning this UEFA Champions League final, wins his third continental title, tying him with Zidane and Paisley. And he would be just one title behind Carlo Ancelotti, who now has four trophies, two won with AC Milan and two with Real Madrid. So being the biggest winner could be in jeopardy for next season.
