It was also the first in the club’s history, and first for Grealish, who broke down post-match.

Often candid in interviews, the 27-year-old England winger certainly provoked some tears back home as he struggled to explain his feelings.

“This is just what you work your whole life for,” he began. “I’m so happy, man.

“I played so dead today I was awful, I don’t care though. Honestly, to win the treble with this group of players and this staff it’s so special.

“Anyone that knows me knows how much of a family person I am and how much I love football and I don’t know, this is what I’ve worked for my whole life.

“You think back to all the people that have helped you along the way and just seeing my family in the crowd there, it just makes me emotional.”

Grealish was then asked about his manager, Pep Guardiola, and expressed how much he owes the Spaniard.

“He’s just a genius isn’t he,” the no.10 continued. “I just said to him there ‘I just want to thank you, you’ve made this happen for me, you put so much faith in me buying me for a lot of money’

“Even last year when I was playing crap he stayed there with me and spoke to me and this year he’s given me that platform so I just said ‘thank you’ to him.”
