After clinching the Premier League and FA Cup in recent weeks, Pep Guardiola‘s men completed the third and final stage of the feat by beating Inter Milan 1-0 in the Champions League final in Istanbul.
City have now joined an exclusive list of teams to have won the domestic league, main domestic cup and European Cup in the same season.
But who exactly are these terrific treble teams?
Let’s take a look at the clubs to have won the treble in European football.
Which teams have won the treble?
Eight football clubs have won the treble in European football.
Barcelona have achieved the treble twice, in 2008/09 under Guardiola and in 2014/15 with Luis Enrique.
Bayern have also won the treble on two separate occasions, with Jupp Heynckes securing the first in 2012/13, before Hans-Dieter Flick added a second in 2019/20.
Celtic became the first British club to win it in 1996/67 with their Champions League triumph remaining the only time a Scottish club has won the European Cup.
Manchester United were the first English club to clinch the treble in 1998/99.
United beat Arsenal to the Premier League title by a single point before overcoming Newcastle in the FA Cup final.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s side then completed the feat by beating Bayern Munich in one of the most dramatic finals in Champions League history.
Trailing 1-0 from the sixth minute, it would take United until the 91st minute to draw level through Teddy Sheringham.
United completed the iconic turnaround two minutes later when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer popped up with the winner at Camp Nou.
