Guardiola beams after 100-pt season: “Incredible, I don’t have words”

Thanks to Gabriel Jesus, Man City came away with a 1-0 victory over Southampton on Championship Sunday and finished the season with a record 100 points.

“It’s incredible, I don’t have words,” Guardiola said. “100 points. 50 points at home, 50 points away. Incredible, incredible.”

It’s not just a number for Pep Guardiola, who was the most positive kind of bewildered after Gabriel Jesus’ stoppage time winner made Manchester City the first 100-point team in English history.

And it’s not old hat for Guardiola despite his days at Barcelona and Bayern Munich; This was his first 100-point season, too.

“Nothing changed but it’s of course because we scored in the last second. When you go to 100 points, it’s something special for all the clubs. I think it’s a record that will stay long.”

“We did (what we did) all season, no surrender, no give up. Today was such a difficult game. Warm, they defend so well, they are so strong physically. The second half was much better and at the end an excellent pass from Kevin and finish from Gabriel.”

So to sum it all up, Man City set Premier League records for points, wins, goals, and goal difference, all while winning the league earlier than any other team and by more points than any other team.
