“You realise…” – Premier League manager sends ominous message over Manchester City’s pre-match routine



| Last Updated:


Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has sent an ominous warning to Manchester City’s upcoming opponents following the Treble winners’ celebrations on Saturday.

The Treble winners of last season took the opportunity to celebrate their five-trophy haul of 2023 in front of their home support, having taken to the Etihad Stadium pitch for the first time since their triumph in Saudi Arabia in December.

Manchester City’s Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League success in their final three games of the 2022/23 campaign was this season followed up by victories in the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup in Jeddah.

With all five trophies on show and in the form of giant banners held aloft at the Etihad Stadium against Sheffield United, Manchester City followed the pre-match jubilation with a sensational performance over the Bramall Lane side.

Speaking after Manchester City’s largely dominant 2-0 victory over Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon, Blades’ boss Chris Wilder was keen to praise Pep Guardiola and his players on their Treble achievements of last season.

“When you walk out and you see five trophies, you realise what you’re facing and what they’ve achieved,” Wilder told the media, on a day when Manchester City took the opportunity to present their five-trophy haul to match-going fans at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

He continued, “Congratulations from myself and Sheffield United to Manchester City on what they’ve achieved under the leadership of arguably the best manager.”

Rodri opened the scoring for Manchester City at the weekend, with the Spaniard held in legendary status after scoring the winning goal in the UEFA Champions League final during the final game of last season.

The defensive midfielder’s opener was then followed up by yet another goal from double World Cup-winning forward Julian Alvarez in the second-half, moving Manchester City into a promising position within the Premier League’s top-four.
