Pep Guardiola has insisted that he doesn’t care about being called the best.
The 44-year-old has been regarded as one of the best managers in the game. He was in charge of Barcelona for four seasons and ended up winning 14 trophies, he then went on to Bayern Munich and has succeeded in leading them to back-to-back Bundesliga trophies and a DFB Pokal.
His success with the club is yet to reflect on their champions league though. Bayern will welcome Barcelona to the Allianz Arena today, with the hopes of overturning a 3-0 deficit.
Ahead of Tuesday’s match though, the Spaniard has insisted he has no interest in enhancing his reputation.
“I’m not here to be considered the best coach in the world. That’s a load of rubbish,” Guardiola said at a press conference.
“I’m happy here and I want to help this team. I gave my best at Barcelona and I’m doing the same now.
“If that’s not good enough for the fans, the journalists and the former players turned journalists, then I’m sorry. But I’m doing my best.”
