Is there a better love story than Pep Guardiola and the Premier League trophy?
Manchester City have only had their hands on the Premier League trophy for a couple of months, but it looks as though Pep Guardiola has already fallen for the cup.
The Manchester City manager was in the USA on a pre-season tour, trophy in tow, when he professed his love for the gong, unable to pass it without giving it a kiss.
“Love it. I love that title, I’m sorry, I love this one,” said Guardiola.
City asked their followers to name a better love story than Pep and the trophy, which City won with a record 100 points, so a few of them had a go.
But this was the most relevant response.
If City win the Champions League next season however, there’s a chance the PL trophy will have to share the 47-year-old’s affections with the jug-eared European Cup.
