Barcelona defender Dani Alves has hailed former manager, Pep Guardiola and called him a football Einstein and believes he’ll succeed at City.
Alves was coached by Guardiola for four years at Barcelona and won three La Liga titles and two UCL trophies.
And the Brazil international is certain his former caretaker can take City to new heights.
“His secret is he gets you to see things differently,” he told The Times. “He is a football Einstein.
“For him it’s a change and that’s what he likes. Guardiola likes to move to places where he can make a revolution. I have no doubt that he is going to achieve it because he is a freak of football.
“[He will want] everything his way, and when you get to a place where they are going to allow that — because in England they respect that — it will be ideal for him.”
