first_img0Shares0000Pep Guardiola saw his Manchester City side thrash Schalke 7-0 on TuesdaySWANSEA, United Kingdom, Mar 15 – Pep Guardiola remains coy about Manchester City’s chances of winning the quadruple, but his side face Swansea in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Saturday standing just 16 games away from a clean sweep of all four major trophies.Guardiola’s team moved closer to the unprecedented silverware haul on Tuesday as they advanced to the Champions League quarter-finals with a 7-0 demolition of Schalke in the last 16, second leg. City have already won the League Cup, beating Chelsea in last month’s final, but that has not quenched Guardiola’s thirst for more success.A victory at second-tier Swansea would see City move into the FA Cup semi-finals, with the Premier League title race set to go down to the wire.City are one point clear of second-placed Liverpool and although the reigning champions would be knocked off top spot if the Reds win at Fulham on Sunday, they will have a game in hand.In a bid to keep the pressure off his players, Guardiola has tried to talk down the possibility of City winning all four trophies, something that no team in the history of the English game has managed.“I said so many times, and I know you are generous and thank you so much guys, but every time you make that comment we lose a competition, so I think you provoke me in that way so, the next one we will see,” joked Guardiola recently when asked about the prospect of a quadruple.Swansea, currently mid-table in the Championship, are not expected to pose a major threat to City, but sterner tests lie in wait in what promises to a be a dramatic finale to the season.The Champions League has provided some painful moments for Guardiola, who won the tournament twice as Barcelona boss but has not lifted the trophy since 2011.– Traditional powers –Pep Guardiola celebrates as goal hero Riyad Mahrez looks onYet with English clubs constituting half of the eight teams in the Champions League quarter-finals, there are few opponents remaining who can intimidate City, especially with traditional powers such as Real Madrid and Bayern Munich having already exited the competition.Even so, given the magnitude of the achievement City are chasing, the hype surrounding his team at present appears muted.The last — and, so far, only — English club to win the treble of Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League was Manchester United under Alex Ferguson in 1999.Guardiola himself achieved the equivalent in Spain with Barcelona in 2008-09.Yet, Guardiola has done such a good job of playing down expectations in almost every scenario in which City have found themselves this season that the issue of a possible quadruple has barely been on the news agenda.On the occasions that he has been asked about such a possibility, Guardiola has claimed that, to be considered among Europe’s elite, City first have to ensure they are regularly competing in the latter stages of the big competitions.“The big clubs, that is the big difference, as I said many times –- what is the best clubs in the last decade? Juventus, Bayern Munich, Barcelona — these are the best three teams in the last decade in Europe,” said the Spaniard.“Why? Because every season they win the league, every season they win the cups, every season they are there, because they are the best.“It’s difficult to imitate them, being in the competition, it doesn’t matter which one –- until the last stages.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more


first_imgHockenheim (Germany), Oct 14 (AFP) Mick Schumacher is tipped to carry the famous surname into Formula One as the newly-crowned European Formula Three champion finished the season with his 14th podium placing on Sunday. The 19-year-old son of stricken Formula One legend Michael Schumacher took second in the final race of the 2018 season at Germany’s Hockenheim circuit. Having already been confirmed European F3 champion on Saturday, Schumacher finished the last race of 2018 behind his Prema team mate Robert Shwartzman for his 14th podium place in the 30-race season, with seven wins. “Mick has the racing genes of Michael,” said Gerhard Berger, boss of the German Touring Car championship. “If he can continue to deliver performances like these, then he will find his way into Formula One.” The head of Mercedes motorsport was equally impressed as Schumacher enjoyed a phenomenal second half of the season by picking up five straight wins last month to seize control of the drivers’ championship. “He can be a big name in our sport,” said Mercedes boss Toto Wolff. “The boy was in the spotlight from the beginning and was under huge pressure, it’s far from easy to deal with that.” Italy’s Gazzetta dello Sport declared there is an “heir to the Schumacher dynasty” – 14 years after Michael Schumacher’s last F1 world title and 28 years after he was crowned German F3 champions, at two years older than Mick is now. For the teenager with the one of the most famous surnames in motorsport, the first major title of his career was “a nice feeling and confirmation that we’re doing something right,” he said, making sure to thank his Prema team for their support.advertisement Schumacher has qualified for a FIA “super licence”, a prerequisite to race in Formula One, and is weighing up whether to move up to Formula Two or higher. “Not yet,” he replied when asked if he has decided about his future, but revealed talks are in progress. Schumacher’s success has generated huge interest in F3. On Saturday night, he was interviewed live by German national broadcaster ZDF, yet the condition of his father was not addressed. Michael Schumacher, 49, has not been seen in public since suffering serious head injuries during a skiing accident in December 2013 while skiing with Mick and his condition is a secret closely guarded by his family.
