Josep "Pep " Guardiola, born on the 18th of January,1971 is a Spanish Professional football Coach and former player who is the current Manager of Manchester City.
After retiring as a footballer,Guardiola became Coach of Barcelona B,and in 2008 he took over from Frank Rijkaard as the first team manager.
During his time at Barcelona,he won six titles for the club that includes la liga titles, Copa Del Roy and the UEFA champions league.
He later moved to Bayern Munich in 2013, following the retirement of Jupp Heynekes. And during his three years at Bayern Munich, he won three titles at Allianz Arena.
Pep Guardiola has been appointed as the Coach of Manchester City,taking over from Manuel Pellegrini.
The Barcalay Premier league is different from the Laliga and the Bundensliga where Guardiola have previously managed. In laliga,it is a three horse race that determines who wins the league. It is either Barcelona, Real Madrid or recently Athletico Madrid. But Barcelona has won more laliga titles than the two other clubs in the last ten years.
In the Bundesliga,it is a two horse race between Bayern Munich and Borrusia Dortmund. And the Bavarians has always had the upper hand between the two clubs.
Looking at the Barcalay Premier league in recent times,there are lot of complexities in it. It is a league that is unpredictable, anything could happen. It used to be a four horse race between Manchester United,Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal. But now, Manchester City, Spurs and the Champions Lieciester City are all in the mix. Within the last five years,Manchester City has won the league twice. In the 2015-16 season, Leceister City an under-dog won the league.
Pep Guardiola has been labelled as a young manager,that lacks experience. This admission was given by Frank Ribery of Bayern Munich, a club Pep has previously maanaged. Ribery criticised Guardiola for losing the semi-final Champions league to Athletico Madrid. Ribery stated"that he talks too much,instead of taking action".
Now that Pep Guardiola is the Manager of the" Noisy Neighbours" in Manchester,he faces an undaunting task of taking Manchester City to greater heights. The question is this: Can he replicate the successes he achieved both in Spain and Germany in England?
Time will Tell.
