Guardiola adds another

Anna Segura

Josep Guardiola has now won four trophies as head coach of FC Barcelona after he oversaw the Spanish Super Cup triumph on Sunday to add to the three that the team secured last term in a unique treble.

After only 14 months and six days in charge at Camp Nou, the Blaugrana's former midfielder has a quartet of cups to his name after Barça netted three times in Camp Nou to beat Athletic Club on the night and add to the 1-2 victory that was garnered in San Mamés seven days before.

Five times winner

Although this is the first time that Guardiola has won the trophy as a coach, he has plenty of experience of being a winner as a player. During a glorious decade for the club, the current trainer helped to guide the team to triumph in the Spanish Super in 1991, 1992, 1994 and 1996.

An historic year

Another trophy

Barça and Guardiola have begun the new season just as they concluded the last as they lifted a piece of silverware. On Friday (August 28) they could double that as they take on Shakhtar Donetsk in the European Super Cup in Monaco.
