Everyone is still praising Manchester City's performance in the UEFA Champions League final where they beat Inter Milan by the narrowest of margins to win the ultimate trophy they have been waiting for since the Arab sheikhs were able to buy the club a few years ago. The patience they have had with Josep Guardiola has paid off and today they can celebrate a dream season.

Guardiola suffered a lot since his arrival at the English club in 2016. He had to find his talents in different teams and managed to put together a team that could play what he wanted. Perhaps it is no longer the same football revolution that he had with FC Barcelona and elements such as Lionel Messi, Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta. But it is just as effective when it comes to winning trophies,

In a recent interview, the Spanish coach assured that he owes all that championship to the star signing of the season, Erling Haaland. The Norwegian broke the scoring records set in the Premier League a few years ago and surpassed historical talents like Kevin Keegan or Thierry Henry, only in his first season which is really surprising for a youngster who is only 22 years old and has hardly any real experience with such a powerful club.

But now he has really confessed what was the secret to winning the final of Europe's top competition. And it has certainly left everyone who has heard these words speechless as they understood that his style of play was more relevant than the external circumstances that sometimes affect the matches.

The reason why Guardiola won the Champions League.

In a press conference with the media Pep Guardiola made an extraordinary confession about the last minutes of the UEFA Champions League final where Manchester City were crowned champions. He said: “I am European champion because a player missed a header from three metres out, alone and in front of the goalkeeper. And now they say 'How handsome Pep is. How good he is and how well he does it'. Only by three metres”. Chance is now the most important friend of the Iberian's hat-trick.
