Pep Guardiola

People say that as a player, “Pep” Guardiola was always one thought ahead of his adversaries.

When I met him, he welcomed me saying: “I’ll give you three minutes for the photos – and beware that two have already passed”. Pure Pep.

Apparently, I didn’t need any more proof of his motivation skills.

Under his guidance, Barça played a historic season winning both Spanish League and Cup as well as the club’s third Champions League title.
