Pep Guardiola is widely regarded as one of the greatest football managers of all time. His successful tenure at Barcelona, where he won numerous domestic and international titles, and his achievements with Bayern Munich and Manchester City have solidified his reputation. However, opinions on the best-ever manager vary among football fans and experts, and it is subjective to personal preferences and criteria for evaluation.
Where does Guardiola rank amongst the ever managers the game has seen?
Feel free to join the discussion and share your thoughts.
Pep has won 10 league titles in 12 seasons, breaking the record for points totals in La Liga and the Premier League while winning the Bundesliga in the fastest time ever. He is relentless, never allowing his players to rest on their laurels or get complacent.
He reads the game better than any manager currently and always has a solution to any challenge he faces. I may not be able to to categorically say he’s the best ever. But he’s surely up there as one of the best ever!
Pep will no doubt be counted among the greatest managers of all time but his success will always be undermined by other factors in his favor. To start with he has always got a strong team to work with. He inherited good teams and players at Barca and Bayern and had a free hand at City to hand pick the best players with their unlimited monster budget.
I rank managers like Mikel Arteta and Erik ten Hag higher this season as they took upon an incredibly challenging task of turning around the fate of their clubs.
