Pep Guardiola believes it will be “impossible” for Manchester City to emulate their record-breaking season.
City smashed a number of Premier League and top-flight records as they cantered to the title this campaign.
They broke records for most points (100), most wins (32), most goals (106), and biggest winning margin (19 points) to underline their domestic dominance.
Guardiola says that even the 25-point gap to Liverpool in fourth is “unreal”, and suggests it will never be repeated.
“At Barcelona and Bayern Munich people expect you to win, but at Manchester City you never know. We don’t have history behind us like other important teams and there are five or six really tough teams at the top,” he told Sky Sports.
“When you look at the distance of the gap we won with and think about doing that again, it will be impossible. You think about 25 points to Liverpool, and all the other clubs, it’s unreal. And the weather conditions, the amount of games, it’s quite different to Germany and Spain.
“It’s one of the most satisfying titles. But I am from Barcelona and that is my club so winning the first league there was also so special – “we did it”. Now I have that feeling as well. I don’t know what is going to happen in the future but we will always remember together that we did it here in England.”
