Since then, there has been no turning back to the prior Barca midfielder, who’s on the brink of yet another league title this year with Manchester City.
He proceeds to pursue his first Champions League because, in 2011, Guardiola is becoming the very prosperous director in the previous 13 years, winning 30 decorations with Barca, City and Bayern Munich. The Manchester City boss has become the dominant force in soccer since taking over at Barcelona in 2008, winning a La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League treble in his first year in charge.
According to Transfermarkt, the 50-year-old’s haul of trophies, which will include two Community Shields whilst handling at England, beats former Shakhtar Donetsk director Mircea Lucescu into the second location.

Despite winning 15 more trophies than his counterpart Mourinho during their managerial careers, Guardiola is ranked below the future Roma boss in a ranking of the best managers of the twenty-first century.
The former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur manager has been ranked number one by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics.
Guardiola and Ferguson were tied for third place, with Joachim Low in second place on his own.
