Manchester City has now joined the likes of Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Barcelona, PSV, Ajax, Celtic and Inter as the only few treble winners across Europe out of the nine trebles in history.
Pep Guardiola’s side thrashed Inter Milan 1-0 to also complete a historic treble having already won the Premier League and FA Cup this season with that one Rodri strike on 68th minute.
Rodri hesitated not but rather fired a stunning shot from a Bernardo Silva cutback midway through the second half at the 40,000 capacity Ataturk Olympic Stadium to decide a game in which City were knocked out of their usual rhythm and lost Kevin De Bruyne to injury early in the match forcing Pep to introduce a young lad Phil Foden.
A 52-goal scorer this season Erling Haaland piped a fifth straight match without finding the back of the net, but City still had enough to edge out the Italian opponents who had never been expected to get this far in the first place.
Guardiola has now won the Champions League three times having won it twice with Barcelona.
