WATCH: Pep Guardiola replies with 'What da f**k?' when asked if Man City can win quadruple
Manchester City are riding high. Pep Guardiola has somehow managed to instill his trademark playing philosophy into his new charges in a remarkably short amount of time, as the Blues have notched up a maximum 15 points from their first five games.
The football is exquisite too, with City looking in total command of each game. They are fluid and creative in attack, whilst tenacious and perfectly organised when lacking possession. All this with Kevin De Bruyne working his magic upfront.
Such has been their dominance in the first few weeks of the season that it has let to some wondering whether the side can manage unprecedented feats this season. Forget merely winning the league, can they match Arsenal's 'Invincibles'?
But Guardiola isn't interested in such hype, in fact he detests it with a passion. Not only is he concerned about heaping pressure on his players and himself, but he's acutely aware of the media's habit of building you up to knock you down.
So when he was asked about City's chances of winning the quadruple this season (Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup) he wasn't impressed. Rather he made his dismay perfectly apparent with a sweary retort...
"What da fuck..." he exclaimed under his breathe, before sighing heavily and replying with the standard soundbites. Brilliant.
Q: is the aim to win four trophies?
