Guardiola was previously in charge atBarcelonafor four seasons and Bayern Munich for three, and he is regarded as one of the greatest managers of all time.
Camp Nou chiefs took a gamble by promoting Guardiola – who was then Barcelona B boss – to the senior job in 2008 after just one year in management.

He took a one-year sabbatical in New York before taking over at Bayern, where he won three Bundesliga titles in a row and the DFB-Pokal twice.
Guardiola was snapped up by City in 2016 and he has led the club to three Premier League triumphs, the FA Cup and four successive Carabao Cups.
