In 2008–09, Futbol Club Barcelona started a new era with a new manager, former player and FC Barcelona Atlètic coach Pep Guardiola, who led the team to the first Treble in Spanish football history. After selling off high-profiled players such as Deco and Ronaldinho, Barcelona played scintillating football throughout the season, winning the Copa del Rey, La Liga, and the UEFA Champions League. This Barcelona squad is considered as one of the best in history.
