Fans rinse Pep Guardiola for remembering watching Manchester United’s treble in 1999 ‘as a little boy’

Fans have poked fun at Pep Guardiola for saying he watched Manchester United win the treble at the Camp Nou ‘as a little boy’.

And it’s easy to see why the mis-step was picked up on, as the Manchester City manager was 28 years old when the match took place.

Guardiola was in fact in his final years at Barcelona when United completed their famous comeback win over Bayern Munich to seal the only ever European treble by an English team.

His City side are looking to repeat that feat with the Premier League title already secured and finals in the FA Cup and Champions League still to come.

And when asked about how difficult it will be to take down United and Inter Milan in the next two finals, Guardiola got his timelines mixed up.

“I start to think about the treble and if we are able to go to Istanbul with the two titles in the pocket, now I can consider that OK, we won one title we could do it,” Guardiola began.

“But look at United, it was once in a lifetime in the UK and the way they won against Bayern Munich in Camp Nou, I was there as a little boy, how they won it.”

Fans were quick to jump on the comment, posting pictures of Guardiola at the age of 28, when he was already old enough to have a little boy of his own.

He also got some heat for another comment from Celtic fans when he said it was ‘once in a lifetime in the UK’.

The Scottish side in fact achieved the feat in 1967 when they won all four trophies on offer, becoming the first British team to become European champions.
