Pep Guardiola explains why he will “never surpass” Carlo Ancelotti’s record for Champions League victories.

The reason Pep Guardiola will “never beat” Carlo Ancelotti’s Champions League record has been reveal.

Last season, Guardiola won the trophy for the third time after leading Manchester City to an historic treble victory that included a victory over Inter Milan in Istanbul.

With Rodri’s goal in the second half, City won its first Champions League championship and Guardiola’s 12-year drought as a European champion was over.

1992 champion as a player, he defeated Manchester United in wins that propelled his beloved Barcelona to triumph in 2009 and 2011.

Thus, Guardiola has managed three teams, but he still trails Carlo Ancelotti, the competition’s most successful manager, by one.

The most recent victory for the Italian legend—in 2022—came after two triumphs at AC Milan and one each at Real Madrid.

Ancelotti, however, has two more championship medals to add to his collection as a player, giving him a total advantage of 6-4 over Guardiola.

Guardiola beat his rival by a resounding 5-1 final aggregate score, avenging the result from the previous campaign, but he doesn’t see himself surpassing the 64-year-old.

I only won one game as a football player, but he won three or four more, so I cannot defeat him, he claimed to TNT Sports.

When it comes to Champions League trophies, “You can never beat Ancelotti.

Since I am younger than he is, I have more time, but it is not my intention to do so.”.

At the Etihad Stadium, City and Red Star Belgrade square off in a group stage match as Real Madrid hosts Union Berlin.
