John Stones, a defender for Manchester City, remains optimistic despite Pep Guardiola’s doubts about the team’s chances. Guardiola recently expressed skepticism about the team’s likelihood of achieving a treble, rating their chances at just 0.01 percent. However, Stones is confident that the team can make history by winning the treble two years in a row. He points to the team’s track record of winning and defeating rivals such as Liverpool and Arsenal to support his optimism.
Manchester City has already secured victories in the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup this season, as well as a hard-fought win against Tottenham in the FA Cup. They are also in a strong position in the Premier League title race and are about to resume Champions League action, facing Copenhagen in the last-16. Stones, who has recently returned from injury and reclaimed a spot in the starting lineup, is not shying away from setting ambitious goals. He expressed his belief in the team’s capabilities and their potential to achieve great things in an interview with BBC Radio Manchester after the Everton match.
Following the win against Everton, Guardiola praised the team’s resilience and expressed his satisfaction with their performance. He highlighted the team’s ability to come back from losing positions and stressed the importance of learning from such challenging games, especially with tough opponents like Chelsea and upcoming Champions League fixtures on the horizon. Guardiola also commented on the positive team environment and expressed his confidence in the team’s potential, acknowledging that while he likes their current attitude, it doesn’t guarantee success.
