Pep Guardiola reveals one of his Man City treble winners will make ‘the best’ manager when he retires

Pep Guardiola has picked out one of his Manchester City treble winners who will make the best manager in the future.

Guardiola is often regarded as one of the best managers in the history of football after his spells with the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Since joining City from German side Bayern, he has led them to multiple Premier League titles and also won the club’s first-ever Champions League trophy last season.

Having managed some of the finest players in the world, Guardiola was asked to pick out who he thinks will make it as a manager in the future.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the City boss said: “(Ilkay) Gundogan, for sure 100%.

“I’m a good guy to choose a good manager, players no but the managers I’m good to say ‘he will be good’ and Gundogan will be good.”

Guardiola continued: “For many things, he understands the game, his communication is good, well respected and has passion.

Back in May, when Gundogan’s City exit was becoming a reality, Guardiola heaped praise on the midfielder, he said: “I said I had the feeling that without him we couldn't win the Premier League. He’s so intelligent Gundo, so clever and competitive.

“Under pressure he handles it without a problem. He’s one of the best players I ever trained in my career in terms of the whole package.”

Guardiola added: “He's top, top class.”

During his time with the Etihad club, Gundogan played 304 times, scoring on 60 occasions.

Since leaving City, Gundogan signed for Barcelona on a free transfer and has become a key part of Xavi’s plan at the La Liga giants.

So far in the 23/24 season, Gundogan has made 19 appearances across all competitions, scoring once and assisting five times.
