The Seven Treble Winners In European Football History

With Liverpool still on course to complete the 2021/22 campaign with a historic quadruple, here is a look at some of the sides that have come close by winning the treble.

The Reds are still in with a chance of winning four major trophies in the same season, something no other Premier League team has ever done.

The closest any English side has got was in the 1998/99 campaign when Manchester United completed a historic treble, with a League Cup triumph eluding the Red Devils as they crashed out of that competition at the quarter-final stage against Tottenham Hotspur.

The 13-time Premier League champions are one of only seven clubs to complete an official treble, and remain the only English side to have done it, but they were not the first British team to achieve this feat.

Not only are Scottish giants Celtic the first British side to win the league, the cup and the European Cup (now UEFA Champions League) in the 1966/67 season, they are also the only team ever to win an official quadruple, having won the Scottish League Cup that season too.

There are only two clubs to have won an official treble on two different occasions: Bayern Munich and Barcelona.

The Blaugrana's first treble came during Pep Guardiola's first season as a manager in top-flight football in the 2008/09 campaign, and their second was achieved in the 2014/15 campaign, when Luis Enrique was boss. Interestingly, both are former midfielders of the Catalan giants.

Jupp Heynckes helped deliver the Bavarians' first treble in 2012/13, with their second coming under now-Germany national team coach Hansi Flick in the 2019/20 campaign after he took over from Niko Kovac halfway through the season.

The Netherlands have two treble-winning sides in the form of Ajax Amsterdam and PSV Eindhoven. The former won it during the 1971/72 season with Johan Cruyff as their top goalscorer, while PSV won the European Cup, KNVB Cup and Eredivisie titles 16 years later, in the 1987/88 campaign.

Inter Milan are the only Serie A team to complete a treble. They did so under the tutelage of Jose Mourinho in 2010, beating AS Roma in the final of the Coppa Italia, defeating Siena on the final day of the league season to capture the Scudetto, and then completing the treble by beating Bayern at the Santiago Bernabeu in the UCL final.
