Guardiola then compared United’s achievements under Ferguson to his own at City.

“Last five years we won four Premier Leagues, these guys are legends already, I’m sorry. People have to admit it,” he claimed. “This group of players are absolutely eternal in this club because of what we achieved. It’s so difficult to do.

“Sir Alex Ferguson with United has done it, years ago, two or three times, now I realise the magnitude of Sir Alex Ferguson to do it two or three times, or four, I don’t know exactly, four or five times. We are part of that.”
