Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has doused talks about his team winning a quadruple of title after they reached the semi-finals of the EFL Cup on Tuesday.
City beat Leicester 4-3 on penalties following a 1-1 draw to secure a spot in the EFL Cup semi-finals but Guardiola does not think City will be celebrating an unprecedented quadruple at the end of the season, with the club also still in the FA Cup and Champions League, as well as being runaway and undefeated leaders in the Premier League.
“Forget about it,” Guardiola said to Sky Sports. “That’s not real. That’s not going to happen, no.”
The Catalan coach also suggested Leicester were lucky to have made it to a shoot-out in the first place, with Gray in his opinion fortunate to win the penalty that Vardy converted.
He added: “The TV doesn’t lie. We can see if it’s a penalty or not, but we overcame the situation. In football, sometimes these kind of things happen.”
