Could you explain what the word 's means in football?

The Ultimate Premier League team 🏆🔝
Pep Guardiola's Man City take on Sir Alex Ferguson's United. Who would win?

@hyuna27g_ย 

This is interesting - the apostrophe use shows that the Man City team 'belongs' to Pep Guardiola or in other words, the Manchester City side that Pep manages rather than another City team. The same for Man United.ย 

I suppose when we say Pep's City it means Manchester City under Pep Guardiola.

I'm confused by the use of the possessive here. I saw the word 's used when reading this page. What does 's mean in this case?

Manchester Cityโ€™s Kevin de Bruyne scored in the 82nd minute.

Mancherster City's Kevin de Bruyne.

Pep's Manchester City.

This is a different structure where "Man City" can go in front and behind.

  1. Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne = de Bruyne plays for Manchester City
  2. Pep's Manchester City = Pep is the coach of Manchester City / Manchester City play under Pep
