Manchester City, a team in the Premier League, is currently managed by Pep Guardiola. Having won the most consecutive league games in La Liga, the Bundesliga, and the Premier League, he is regarded as one of the best managers of all time.
Guardiola was a playmaker who typically occupied the defensive midfield position. He played for Barcelona for the majority of his career and was a part of Johan Cruyff’s Dream Team, which helped the club win its first European Cup in 1992 as well as four straight Spanish league championships from 1991 to 1994.
From 1997 until his departure in 2001, he served as the team’s captain. Guardiola later played for Brescia and Roma in Italy, Al-Ahli in Qatar, and Dorados de Sinaloa in Mexico.
In the same year, he was also named FIFA World Coach of the Year. He completed his four-year career at Barcelona in 2012 with 14 awards, a club record.
When he moved from Bayern Munich to Manchester City in 2016, he broke numerous domestic records as the team became the first to accumulate 100 league points. In his second season as manager, Manchester City won the Premier League.
