Manchester City Football Club completed 2023 by becoming the first English club in history to simultaneously hold the Premier League, FA Cup, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.

Club captain Kyle Walker spoke of his pride at winning all five trophies in a calendar year, describing the achievement as as special. He added, “We’ve shown over the past 12 months we are the best team in the world. Our results prove that and the consistency we have managed has been amazing.

“To win these five trophies – for me, the five biggest prizes available to us – is incredible. I am so proud to have been a part of this and I can honestly say it’s an honour to play alongside these players. It’s been the best year I have had in football and something I will never, ever forget.”

The 2022/23 season was the finest in Manchester City’s 129-year history. City won 22 and drew five of its final 28 matches in all competitions to ensure they became only the second English team in history to win the Treble of Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup.

Pep Guardiola, Manager at City Club said, “I am so proud of this Club. What we have done is an outstanding achievement. To win the Treble was truly special, but to win two more trophies and now hold these five major titles shows the unique mentality of this team, of the Club and its fans.

“It is something no other English team has ever achieved and we will always remember this incredible time we spent together.”
