Manchester City and Manchester United face an era of change with a new manager, or maybe two, reinforcements in playing staff and differing finance models providing key indicators to which club will emerge on top
Pep Guardiola, Manchester City, head coach are six words to delight all City fans and make every Manchester United devotee shiver. How the Spaniard will revamp the side and Citys style of play is a must-watch next season and when he enters the City Football Academy on 1 July the fascination begins.
There is a valid question concerning how good Guardiola will be in the Premier League, arguably a far more demanding test than Spain, where he coached Barcelona, or Germany, where he is in charge of Bayern Munich.
At Bara, Guardiolas was a gilded XI that contained Xavi Hernndez, Andrs Iniesta, Dani Alves, Pedro, Carles Puyol, Gerard Piqu and Sergio Busquets and was decorated by one of the greatest ever players in Lionel Messi. Without such talents at Bayern, Guardiola has failed to win the Champions League.
