Following the Sky Blues’ treble victory, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola gave his six-figure bonus to the club’s personnel.
Last month, Pep Guardiola made history by becoming the first Manchester City manager to win the UEFA Champions League, capping up the Sky Blues’ historic season with their first-ever European triumph after winning the Premier League and FA Cup.
In May, City won the Premier League trophy for a third straight year after defeating Arsenal at both the Emirates and the Etihad with crucial victories.
Manchester City won the Premier League title and the first of three trophies, but the North London team lost back-to-back games to both Brighton and Nottingham Forest.
Before Rodri’s goal in the 68th minute and Ederson’s heroic goaltending propelled Manchester City to Champions League triumph, the Sky Blues won the FA Cup with a memorable 2-1 victory over Manchester United at Wembley Stadium.
The Blues’ historic triumphs netted them an estimated £300 million in prize money, in addition to bonuses for players, management, and select employees.
According to The Daily Mail, Guardiola gave the club’s employees his six-figure, almost £750,000 Premier League-winning bonus.
Receptionists and security personnel at the City Football Academy are among the recipients of Guardiola’s thoughtful present, and Jack Gaughan notes that the Catalan is a “hugely popular figure” among workers.
According to the Daily Mail, his donation “will significantly increase” the value of incentives that were already given to staff members in the wake of the triple victory.
A new two-year contract was signed by the 52-year-old in November at the Etihad Stadium, securing the manager’s position there till at least 2025.
Guardiola managed Manchester City to its 300th victory against Inter Milan.
Guardiola has overseen 413 games since taking over as Blues manager in 2016, collecting 14 titles and watching his team score more than 1,000 goals.
