Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is regarded as one of the best Managers of modern football. The Catalan has won a lot of trophies throughout his career working as the boss at Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Man City.
He has won over 40 major trophies, including a treble with three different clubs he has managed in three different countries. However, his success did not come without challenges even though he made everything seem simple with his achievements in the short span of his career.
During a recent interview, Guardiola admitted that it was difficult to leave Barcelona and joined Bayern Munich, a successful club that recently won treble. He said: “It was difficult to come to Germany after Bayern Munich won the historic treble with Jupp Heynckes.”
“I believe that was the biggest challenge in my career, but everything was nice within the Bayern Munich team.”
Speaking about his days at the Spanish giants, the City boss said: “In Barcelona, we touched beauty, as the style we presented is still remembered to this day.”
He added that the height of his achievement was winning the historical treble with the Cityzens, however, the success did not come without a load of disappointments as City struggled in the European competition before lifting the UEFA Champions League at the final in Istanbul last year.
“Winning the historic treble with Manchester City is the culmination of everything, but it was not possible to win it without previous disappointments, and if I am here for the eighth season, it is because of confidence in my abilities even in tough moments.”
“In the past, I was not patient and suffered from tension, but now I am more composed and calm. Experience teaches you that it’s just a game.”
Guardiola concluded, “There were simple things I didn’t tolerate in the past, but now I understand things differently.”
