Manchester City’s winning run won’t matter if they do not win the Champions League.
According to Jamie Carragher, City’s winning run would be meaningless if they fail to win the European Cup this season.
They have now made it 20 wins in a row in all competitions and are currently six wins away from equalling the European records for most wins.
“What we are seeing is unprecedented,” Carragher said.
“The league is won, I know it’s difficult for Pep and the players to say it, but I think we all feel that the title is won.
“They’re big favourites for another competition against Spurs in that final and you wouldn’t bet against them in the FA Cup. They did the domestic treble a couple of years ago and that had never been done before, so they look like they’re going to do that again.
“But I wanted to talk about the longest winning runs in terms of Europe – the European giants – because it’s not just what they’re doing in terms of English football, it’s what they’re doing in terms of some of the greatest teams we’ve ever seen in Europe.
“The Ajax team of Johan Cruyff, the Ajax team of Louis van Gaal of the mid-90s, that won a Champions League. Bayern Munich last season, Real Madrid under Ancelotti at the time and Barcelona under Rijkaard, and Man City can break this record when you look at the fixtures coming up.
“The form that they’re in, I’m sure this is something Pep is talking about constantly. If they can have the longest winning run in Europe, they don’t need that to prove they’re a special team, but these types of stats that you have, something that means a lot to you but you don’t get a trophy for it.”
