Pep Guardiola created history on Sunday (May 19) during the final matchday of the Premier League 2023–24 season by becoming the first manager in the world to win four Premier League titles in a row. Pep’s Manchester City got the better of David Moyes’ West Ham United by a margin of 3-1 in the final match of the Premier League 2023–24 season played at Etihad Stadium in Manchester.
The win over the Hammers on Sunday helped Manchester City become Premier League champions for the eighth time in history, and it was the first occasion in English football that any club has managed to win four Premier League titles in a row. The Cityzens finished the season with 91 points from 38 matches, two more than second-placed Arsenal (89 points). Liverpool finished third with 82 points after winning the final match of Jurgen Klopp’s era by a margin of 2-0 against Wolves at Anfield.
Before Guardiola, the record for winning most Premier League titles in a row was held by the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson, who won three back-to-back Premier League titles for Manchester United twice in his career. Guardiola equaled Sir Alex’s record last year by winning his third Premier League title, and in 2024, he has moved one step ahead of him.
Manchester City’s title win on Sunday also helped Pep win his sixth Premier League title as manager. He joined the Manchester-based club in 2016 after successful stints in Spain and Germany with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, respectively, and since then has enjoyed never-before-seen success in England as well.
In 2023, he became the first manager to win the UEFA Champions League title with Manchester City and helped them complete the treble of Premier League, Champions League, and FA Cup. Under his guidance, Manchester City also went on to win the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup later.
'Doubts on the Future'
After creating history with Manchester City, Guardiola cast doubt over his long-term future at the club by admitting it is difficult to find motivation after so much sustained success.
"The reality is, I'm closer to leaving than to staying," Guardiola told Sky Sports. "It's eight years; it will be nine."
"Right now, my feeling is that I want to stay next season. We talked with the club; we have time to talk next season because I have to see the players as well (to see) if they follow me, they follow us, for many reasons. I will stay, and during the season we will talk when calm."
