Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola hopes his players seize the opportunity of a lifetime after they beat arch-rivals Manchester United 2-1 in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Victory in the first-ever all-Manchester FA Cup final came hot on the heels of a fifth Premier League title in six seasons under the Spaniard.

Guardiola joined Arsene Wenger and Alex Ferguson as the only managers to win the English double more than once, having also achieved it in the 2018-19 season.

Manchester City can now achieve the treble against Inter Milan when City can be crowned European champions for the first time and match United's 1998-99 still unique treble under Ferguson.

Guardiola told reporters: "We are in a position we will probably never be in again," Guardiola, who has turned City into an unstoppable force since arriving in 2016, winning 11 trophies. Everything will not be complete if we don't win the Champions League now. We have to win the Champions League to be recognised how the team deserves to be recognised."
