Stunning new Pep Guardiola mural unveiled near Etihad Stadium
| Last updated
A new mural of Pep Guardiola has been unveiled close to the Etihad Stadium.
Since Pep Guardiola’s appointment as Manchester City boss, it isn’t a stretch to suggest that he is widely classed as the club’s greatest ever manager.
Winning four of the last six Premier League titles, four Carabao Cups, one FA Cup, while guiding City to their first-ever Champions League Final, the Spanish tactician has surpassed all expectations placed on his shoulder.
In the ongoing 2022/23 season as well, the Sky Blues are once again set to challenge for the title, whilst also being one of the frontrunners to finally reign over Europe.
Guardiola has managed to usher in an era of dominance at Manchester City and simultaneously, bring in a brand of football that is considered as perhaps the most aesthetically pleasing style English football has ever seen.
As a result, it comes as no surprise why the Catalan coach is adored within and beyond the blue half of Manchester, with the majority of fans praying that he signs another contract extension.
Keeping that in mind, a gesture has been paid to the iconic manager in the city, that emphasises his impact at the club for his ongoing six years in charge.
The stunning artwork has been made by two graffiti artists, Mr. Meana and Snotone on the gable end of a house in Beswick, facing the club’s home ground.
The mural has been created by a company called ‘MurWalls’, which brings together some of England’s finest street artists and works with a number of brands and organisations to create such unique pieces.
The company was responsible for Sergio Agüero’s glorious mural in the Northern Quarter.
The work on Guardiola’s mural began on Monday, and went on for seven hours, before it was finally ready to be unveiled. However, it is yet to be fully completed.
It has been claimed that the mural has attracted a lot of attention, with traffic jams caused due to its presence.
The 51 year-old, who has previously taken charge of Barcelona and Bayern Munich, joined Manchester City in 2016, replacing Manuel Pellegrini.
Guardiola has taken charge of 362 matches as head coach, winning 263 of those games and seeing his side score 894 goals.
Ultimately, it is a true piece of art and does justice to the greatness of Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola.
