Pep Guardiola on Saturday became the coach with the most victories in Manchester City’s history (221) after beating Chelsea 1-0 in the Premier League.
The Spanish coach ties the tie with legendary Sky Blues coach Les McDowall, who led 220 Manchester City wins between 1950 and 1963.
Guardiola only needed 303 games to reach 221 wins, while McDowall was in charge of City for 592 games.
“I cannot deny that it would be an honor to achieve it”, said the Spanish coach in the previous game when asked about the possibility of breaking McDowall’s record.
Guardiola joins this record to the one that already had of being the coach with the most titles in the history of the Manchester City, with eight to date. This is double that of Joe Mercer and seven more than that of McDowall, who won an FA Cup.
