What treble? Man City show importance of FA Cup and Manchester bragging rights as Jack Grealish kicks off party

Manchester City might be one game from a historic treble, but right now they’re clearly not thinking about the Champions League final.

A 2-1 win over rivals Manchester United at Wembley made it two out of three after their Premier League triumph, and next up is Inter Milan in Istanbul.

A win for the clear favourites would bring home their first-ever European Cup, and end United’s reign as the only English team to capture the treble.

Yet despite the magnitude of the fixture on June 10, City’s celebrations showed that perhaps the Champions League obsession isn’t quite so pronounced.

Tears from Pep Guardiola and the scorer of both goals, Ilkay Gundogan, may have looked out of place with one game still to go, but that would be forgetting just how big the FA Cup is, and beating their fiercest rivals to it.

Explaining the feat to talkSPORT post match, defender Ruben Dias said: “It’s my first FA Cup, and since I’ve come into the country I’ve gained more of an idea of just how important this competition is.

“I’m very proud to have written my name and our team’s name into the history of this cup.

“Now the most important thing is the party, party today, party tomorrow, and then we’ll think about what’s coming.

“It’s the best way to prepare, enjoy the moment and close the cycle, and in our own time we’ll start looking at the next one.

“First of all we party in the dressing room, then we’ll see, the rest is a secret.”

Well the dressing room party wasn’t such a secret, thanks to Jack Grealish’s Instagram account.

The England winger filmed himself chugging a beer and shouting ‘Get it down ya!’ in celebration, before hilariously practising his Spanish with Julian Alvarez.

And if anyone was thinking a team rendition of Oasis’ Wonderwall was enough before attention turned to Inter, they’d be very mistaken.

A kit man in his pants was filmed sliding along a greased up floor, leaving Grealish in breathless laughter.

The only downside was that when he slalomed across the floor through John Stones’ legs, he crashed into Grealish’s locker.

 “Oi watch my Gucci bag!” the no.10 shouted. “F***ing hell!”
