Pep Guardiola admits he has only been successful because he’s managed the world’s best teams


Pep Guardiola has achieved it all in his managerial career.

The Santpedor-born manager won everything at Barcelona. After taking the reigns of the Catalan club in 2008, Guardiola won 14 trophies in his four-year spell with the club, including four La Liga titles and two Champions Leagues.

He also helped create what was one of the best sides that football has ever seen.

Guardiola then moved to Bayern Munich in 2013, where he won the Bundesliga in each of his three seasons.

And he’s also been dominant in England with Manchester City. Since joining in 2016, he has won seven trophies with the Citizens, including two Premier League titles.

Guardiola has been dubbed by many as the best manager in the world.

However, that’s not a view advocated by all.

Thus, Guardiola has been referred to as ‘Fraudiola’ and a ‘bald fraud’ by his critics.

But what does Guardiola think? Does he think he’s the best manager in the world?

The 49-year-old answered that question in a recent interview and it appears he agrees with his critics.

“I never felt like I am the best manager [in the world],” he says. “Even when I won six titles in a row and trebles. Never felt that.

“I won because I had extraordinary players at big clubs. The incredible managers don’t have these players. They don’t have these clubs.

“I’m a good manager, but not the best. Give me a team not like Manchester City and I’m not going to win.”
