- Pep Guardiola has told his players to emulate the successes of Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Juventus
- Guardiola believes these three teams are the best football sides in the last decade
- He failed to acknowledge Real Madrid despite Los Blancos winning the last three Champions League titles
Pep Guardiola has snubbed Real Madrid and named their bitter rivals Barcelona, Italian giants Juventus and Bayern Munich as the three best teams in the last decade.
Guardiola believes that the performances of these three teams he mentioned were superb in the last decade and wants his Premier League team to emulate them.
Despite Real Madrid winning the last three Champions League titles, Pep Guardiola made it clear that Juventus, Barcelona and Bayern Munich are his best teams.
The 48-year-old Spaniard revealed this information while speaking in an interview with Marca over the chances of Manchester City winning the Champions League title.
"Which are the best teams of the last decade? Juventus, Bayern and Barcelona, these have been the best three. Why? Because each season they win the League, each season they win the cup, each season they are there.
"These are the three best teams, we should imitate them, not others. When I say Bayern, Juve and Barcelona are the best, it's because no matter what happens, they always come back.
''Their consistency is what I respect and admire. This is my dream, in every game of every competition we try to do this and so far, we are achieving it,'' Guardiola explained.
Meanwhile, Manchester City are currently occupying second position on the Premier League standings with 56 points after 23 games played this season.
Previously, Legit.ng had reported how Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola explained that his players have started to doubt themselves about the possibility of retaining the Premier League title this season.
This comes after the Citizens were beaten on Wednesday, December 26, by former Premier League champions Leicester City.
City's defeat against Leicester was their third loss this season in the EPL in four games and it left them four points behind current leaders Liverpool.
