Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola has taken football dominance to another level by scoring 1000 goals in under seven seasons.
Pep Guardiola is known for his ability to score goals as a manager. His team, Manchester City, has scored 1000 goals in under seven seasons under his reign. This is an average of over 140 per year. To put it another way, City’s 136 in the current campaign, high as it is, is still a few short of their normal haul.
Guardiola’s teams are known for their attacking prowess and ability to score goals from different positions. Sergio Aguero provided the biggest contribution with 124 goals followed by Raheem Sterling with 120 before his summer sale.
There were also contributions from Gabriel Jesus with 95 goals while a host of attacking midfielders and wingers chipped in: Kevin De Bruyne with 79 goals, Riyad Mahrez with 78 goals, Phil Foden with 59 goals, Ilkay Gundogan with 54 goals and Bernardo Silva with 53 goals.
The striker Erling Haaland scored his 51st goal of the season which was also Manchester City’s 999th goal under Guardiola’s reign.
Guardiola’s teams have been able to achieve many things because of good strikers such as Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, Edin Dzeko, Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez. Each player has had the most prolific season of his career under Guardiola.
Manchester City’s success is due to a supply line that has been superlative and a team that has had a propensity to run riot. Perhaps scoring the fifth and sixth goals in games matter less but a host of routs have helped City to this particular milestone.
