Pep Guardiola had an additional reason to celebrate after Manchester City beat Real Madrid 4-0 in their 2022/23 semi-final second leg with the victory ensuring he became only the third coach in the history of the UEFA Champions League to rack up a century of wins*.

Guardiola's successes have been spread across the three teams he has managed in the competition – Barcelona, Bayern and Manchester City – and only Carlo Ancelotti has more triumphs to his name.

In addition to his latest landmark, Guardiola is also one of a select band who have won the Champions League as players and coaches, alongside the likes of Frank Rijkaard, Zinédine Zidane and Ancelotti – the man in the opposite dugout on the night he brought up his hundred wins.
