Not saying he's a shite manager but with a team like Barca hasnt he had a free ride? The team picks itself and the results will always keep coming with an attacking line like they have. Of course there is much more to management then just picking a team and letting them get on with it but i'd hardly call him a brilliant manager when half of it is already there for him.
Come on mate, it's clear to see the changes he's put in.
Under Rijkaard the big players would miss training, fuck about, not give him respect, and it was more about them than the club towards the end.
Guardiola came in and immediately commanded respect, players are fined thousands of euros for every minute of training they are late for, big egos such as Ronaldinho and Deco were immediately shipped out, the whole team has become a better unit.
Even the goal celebrations have changed, there's no more individuals running off to the cameras, the players congratulate each other as a team then move right back to the centre spot and start knocking it about again.
He's implemented a huge winning mentality comparable to Benitez at Anfield, just look at the Madrid game a couple of weeks ago, the game was already over yet their pride, instilled by Guardiola, kept them fighting on towards achieving a ridiculous result.
Guardiola is everything Barca needed this season and last night, coupled with the League and Cup, is just award for a talented and classy young manager meeting a brilliant team of footballers.
