Julian Alvarez-only information: The serial champion of man city’s treble discusses his flawless year, his World Cup triumph with

‘idol’ Lionel Messi, and why Pep Guardiola’s relentless squad is not content with last season’s treble.The Premier League championship? Verify that. The FA Cup? Verify that. The Champions League, then? Verify that. What is its equivalent in South America, the Copa Libertadores? Check in addition. Furthermore, how about international trophies? Additionally, he possesses the Copa America, which will be Argentina’s first significant trophy in twenty-eight years, and the 2022 World Cup, which will crown the crown jewel. Additionally, the UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, Finalissima, Argentine Primera Division, Copa Argentina, and Supercopa should not be overlooked.The current tally of fourteen trophies won by Julian Alvarez for his club and country is truly astounding; most players could only hope to amass that much silverware during their careers. The alarming aspect is that the striker for Manchester City and Argentina recently turned 24.


Alvarez amassed the most prestigious accolades during a span of twelve frenetic months. His legendary pursuit of trophies commenced in December 2022 with an exhilarating World Cup final victory over France, during which he scored four goals. Subsequently, he assisted City in claiming the Champions League for the first time and a third consecutive Premier League championship, an FA Cup, and the treble, becoming the first English club to do so since rivals Manchester United in 1999.A year later, in Saudi Arabia, City defeated Fluminense 4-0 in the Club World Cup final; Alvarez, who was named Man of the Match, scored both of the game’s opening and final goals. However, the matter remains unresolved, as Alvarez remains unsatisfied…Another triplicate was beckoning him.

He is so confident that City will be able to accomplish yet another treble this season that he has fixed his sights on that objective. “Of course, I believe we can,” Alvarez confirms in an exclusive interview with GOAL. “In the final few months of the season, we’re fighting for all the competitions, we’re good as a group and I think we can do it.”


Guardiola will be ecstatic to hear the striker’s remarks, as the ever-demanding Catalan is similarly ravenous for more success and has shown no intention of leaving City in the near future. Despite their many accomplishments, Alvarez is aware that Guardiola will not allow him and his teammates to rest on their laurels; he insists that the squad shares their coach’s desire to triumph.


“I have that feeling, but it’s not just him and his demands, it’s a bit of us too,” Alvarez asserts. “We’re very competitive and we always want to go for more and that’s what we’re doing this season, trying to do it again.”Goals of every variety

Alvarez was raised in the hamlet of Calchin, Cordoba province, with his two brothers, Rafael and Agustin, where they would play football on the pitch opposite their home beginning when Alvarez was three years old. After trial stints with Real Madrid and Boca Juniors, he fulfilled his lifelong ambition of joining the Millionarios at the age of 16, having grown up supporting River Plate.


Alvarez, who was repositioned around the attack after being deemed a late bloomer, developed into the versatile player he is today, capable of scoring a variety of goals, including a thunderous strike at Craven Cottage that he considers his favorite effort for City thus far and an improvised finish with his chest against Fluminense.


“I have always considered myself to be versatile whenever I enter the field. Throughout my career, I have played in a variety of positions, ranging from central forward to wide out. This versatility has helped Alvarez earn his first major trophy with River in 2018. He entered the Copa Libertadores final off the bench against despised rivals Boca Juniors, which was relocated from Buenos Aires to Madrid due to crowd unrest. However, it was not until three years later that he began to establish himself as a prominent figure, leading River to their first-ever Argentine league championship in 2021 with 20 goals.
