Pep Guardiola makes generous monetary donation to Manchester City staff in wake of treble success



| Last Updated:


Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has gifted his six-figure bonus to club staff following the Sky Blues’ treble triumph.

Pep Guardiola became the first Manchester City manager to win the UEFA Champions League last month, as the Sky Blues concluded their historic campaign with a maiden European triumph after sealing both the Premier League and FA Cup.

City lifted the Premier League trophy for a third consecutive season in May, overcoming Arsenal’s title fight with pivotal victories at both the Emirates and the Etihad against the Gunners.

The North London club suffered successive losses to both Brighton and Nottingham Forest, as Manchester City won their fifth Premier League title in six years, and first of three trophies.

The Sky Blues lifted the FA Cup with a famous 2-1 win over Manchester United at Wembley Stadium before Rodri’s 68th minute strike and Ederson’s goalkeeping heroics helped Manchester City to Champions League glory.

Treble success saw the Blues pocket an estimated £300 million in prize money, while players, management and some staff also earned a bonus as a result of the landmark achievements.

The Daily Mail have revealed that Guardiola donated his six-figure bonus for winning the Premier League to staff at the club, estimated to be around £750,000.

Those receiving Guardiola’s generous gift include receptionists and security staff at the City Football Academy, with Jack Gaughan revealing that the Catalan is a ‘hugely popular figure’ amongst staff.

His donation ‘will significantly increase’ the value of bonuses already handed out to staff following the treble triumph, the Daily Mail report.

In November, the 52 year-old signed a new two-year deal at the Etihad Stadium, keeping the manager at the club until at least 2025.

City’s victory over Inter Milan was Guardiola’s 300th win as Manchester City manager.

Since becoming Blues manager in 2016, Guardiola has taken charge of 413 matches, winning 14 trophies and seeing his side score over 1,000 goals.
