The former Barcelona Coach has won all of his initial 7 matches in charge at the Etihad stadium, and also the former Republic of Ireland midfielder, Roy Keane has been very impressed.
Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola is the real “Special One” instead of Manchester United counterpart Jose Mourinho, former Red Devils Captain Roy Keane has claimed.
Guardiola clinched a 7th win in as several games in charge at the Etihad stadium when his side defeated Borussia Monchengladbach 4-0 in the Champions League on wednesday.
Mourinho arrogantly declared “I think I’m a special one” upon his appointment by Chelsea in 2004, but he suffered his initial defeat as United boss last Saturday when city triumphed 2-1 in the Premier League.
Meanwhile, Keane, who expects City to sustain their spectacular form throughout the campaign, has been more impressed by Guardiola than the person in charge at Old Trafford.
“Two coaches in Manchester, Mourinho reckons he’s the Special one, to me this guy (Pep Guardiola) is,” he said, speaking as a scholar on ITV.
“We’ve seen City have amazing starts before and they take their foot off the gas a little bit, but I don’t think it will happen under this guy.”
Keane admires the daring approach taken by Guardiola towards his playing squad, with the former Bayern Munich manager having made it clear than fan favourites Joe Hart and Yaya Toure were not part of his plans.
“He said he is a challenging coach; it doesn’t appear as if he messes about,” “I wouldn’t like to mess with him.” Keane added
