Fans realize Nathan Jones was the only thing stopping Man City from historic performance and that has left them “stunned”.

FOOTBALL fans are well aware that it is thanks to former Southampton manager Nathan Jones that he prevented Manchester City from winning the quadruple.

Manchester City are on course to win a historic treble after beating Real Madrid 5-1 on aggregate to reach the Champions League final.

Pep Guardiola’s side secured their fifth Premier League title in six seasons with a win over Chelsea.

While only rival Manchester United stands in their way in the FA Cup final.

The Red Devils are aiming for a domestic cup double after winning the Carabao Cup earlier this year.

City lost to Southampton in that competition after a 2-0 defeat with Jones in charge of the win.

It was just one of five wins the Welshman achieved during his tenure as Saints manager – he was sacked in February after just 14 games as manager.

Now fans are shocked to realize Jones is the manager who defeated Guardiola.

One wrote: “The fact that Nathan Jones stopped the quadruple could baffle me to the death.”

Another added: “It’s crazy to think history will remember Nathan Jones as the man who stopped City from winning an unprecedented quadruple.”

A third said: “There will be tapestries and manuscripts showing how it was Nathan Jones’ Southampton that stopped Man City from winning the Quadruple.”

Another commented: “Just a reminder that the man who may have stopped City from winning the quadruple burned down a table tennis table at the last club he was manager at. God bless Nathan Jones.”
