Luis Enrique is positive Pep Guardiola will be a success with Manchester City and predicts better things for the club.
Guardiola earlier announced his decision to leave Bayern Munich and has now been announced as successor to Pellegrini at Manchester City, once the season ends.
The former Barcelona boss is on his way to claiming a third BuLi title and has been backed by his successor at Barcelona, Enrique, to be a success in England.
“I am very happy to see Pep join Manchester City,” Luis Enrique said at a news conference.
“As a football fan and a friend of Pep, I can say that he loves challenges and I am convinced that a great period awaits his new club.
“They will have very attractive seasons under Pep.
“We will see how his style and philosophy will fare in a country that is not really used to it.
“But I surely expect him to be successful.”
