But when asked about which British club he admires, Guardiola made a surprising admission:

"Since the beginning, I enjoy playing Tottenham. I like a lot how they play. Liverpool is magnificent. I suffer against Jurgen Klopp in Germany. The transition to attack inside is so quick. They learnt a lot from last season."

But the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach didn't stop there. He went on to compliment Chelsea, Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho.

"Last season Chelsea were outstanding. We learned about playing five at the back, the movement. I think a lot of teams copy Antonio Conte teams.

"Of course, Jose [Mourinho] is always a huge competitor. His teams, how they convince them to be their teams, I admire the big quality teams and the qualities they have.

Guardiola is proving that you can be winner and a humble fella at the same time. But let's see what his attitude is like when the other sides to start to catch up, when one inevitably knocks him off his perch. Who will be the nice guy, then, Pep?!
