The end of the career is also in the room.

Ilkay Gundogan is credited with Manchester City achieving their first hat-trick in the club’s history by defeating Inter Milan in the Champions League final on Saturday night. The German player is a mainstay in City manager Pep Guardiola’s superior playing system, which has already made England’s Skyblues champions and cup winners.
