Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City’s resolve on shattering every record in club football in Europe and the world is reaping off as the Citizens humiliated Brazilian Fluminense 4-0 at the final of the Club World Cup.

Manchester City are the first English side to win the Premier League, UEFA Champions League, FA Cup, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup in the same year.

City’s victory in Jeddah on Friday means that Guardiola becomes the first manager to lift the Club World Cup with three different clubs. Matteo Kovacic takes the same record as a player.

Phil Foden was on the scoresheet in the King Abdullah International Stadium with World Cup winner, Julian Alvarez, bagging a brace and Fluminense defender Nino netting an unfortunate own goal.

With the Club World Cup in the bag for the young english man Foden, has now won every single competition he has played in with the club — and the England international is also averaging a trophy every 15 games with the Premier League champions.

He said after the game: “It was an unbelievable match. Fair play to them, I love the way they play with short passes, they didn’t make it easy for us.

“But the lads showed not only quality showed heart and determination, we’re not used to the heat. I’m delighted with the outcome

“This is so important for the club. I’m delighted. It is massive for the club.”
