Man City smash record for prize money bonuses after winning the treble

Manchester City will add another huge sum of money to their prize pot after defeating Inter Milan 1-0 in the Champions League final last night.

The Citizens became only the second English side to win the treble, matching the 1999 achievement of their arch-rivals Manchester United.

A 68th-minute goal from Rodri was all that separated the two sides and emotions were high at full-time.

Manager Pep Guardiola finally got his hands on the one trophy that has eluded him during his City spell, 12 years after he last won it with Barcelona.

The victory last night sees the club pocket £95m taking their total prize money pot for the season to almost £280m, as per The Mirror.

It adds to the huge £180m they picked up for lifting a third Premier League in a row last month, and the £3.9m they picked up after defeating United in last week's FA Cup final.

Not that City need it, but the money is certainly enough to help finance anything they spend during the transfer window this summer as they look to build on the historic success.

Speaking to BT Sport after the victory Guardiola said: “This competition is a coin (toss). But we were there.

“I think it was written in the stars this season that it belonged to us and we did it."

He added: "It’s not the scoreline or performance that matters though, City will go down in history as will Guardiola who becomes the only manager to win the treble twice.

"The momentum started winning the Premier League, then the FA Cup, and now we finish here,” he added.

Rumours have been circulating about the future of some key players and the manager now they’ve won everything, but now is the time for celebrating

They will cap off the triumph with an open-top bus parade through the streets of Manchester on Monday evening.
