Pep Guardiola became the first manager to win the English League Cup in four consecutive seasons on Sunday having guided Manchester City to beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 at Wembley.
For the first time in years, most football pundits across the globe became disinterested in the finals days even before kick off as Tottenham sacked its manager [Jose Mourinho] prematurely.
Aymric Laporte’s header in the 82nd minute from Kevin De Bruyne’s free kick was enough to gift the treble chasing his first silverware in 2021.
One key subplot worth noticing is that the finals was played before spectators [7,773]. Something that has not happen since March 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Haven’t accomplished the Carabao Cup assignment, the next on Pep Guardiola’s plate is the Premier League trophy and the UEFA Champions League.
