- Pep Guardiola says he is the best manager because he has the best team at his control
- The Spaniard is one of the best managers football has ever seen with a successful spell across to European powerhouses
- Guardiola admits his success is as a result of having the best squad in the world - a privilege he enjoyed in Barcelona, Bayern and Man City
Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, admitted he has been successful in his managerial exploits because he has the best team in the world at his disposal.
The Spaniard tactician will always sit on the front aisle in the ranking of best football managers that ever brought touches of class and renaissance into the modern football.
With successful managerial stint spanning over a decade across three different top clubs in Europe, Guardiola arguably takes the diadem in his head, though his critics see him as a big fraud because he could only coach a stable team.
The Spaniard brought a great transformation Barcelona and conquered Europe, winning trebles with a formidable squad that saw the emergence of the greatest football trio in Lionel Messi, Xavi and Andre Iniesta.
He would later leave Barcelona for Bayern Munich where he replicated his antics before moving to Man City to succeed Manuel Pellegrini in February 2016 in a deal that has obviously brought a remarkable revolution into the club.
Since joining the Premier League champions, Pep has won seven trophies with the Citizens, including two Premier League titles, which made many refer to him as the best thing to ever happen to football.
Lifting the lids on the secret behind his enviable success across three different countries, Guardiola attributed his successful spell to having a team of best players.
''I never felt like I am the best manager in the world. Even when I won six titles in a row and trebles. Never felt that'' the 49-year-old manager said.
"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."
At Barcelona, Guardiola had Messi, Xavi and Iniesta and the super trio are represented by Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne at the Etihad Stadium.
Sergio Aguero ’s sensational treble against Aston Villa helped him move above Thierry Henry as the most prolific overseas player in EPL history, but that does not level him with Lionel Messi, according to Pep Guardiola.
The Argentine hitman's ingenuity was a subject of discussion on Sunday, January 12, after Man City thrashed their Premier League rivals to keep hope alive on the league log.
