Guardiola: Barca Was A Bigger Struggle Than City

share on:

Guardiola is looking forward to his EPL bow on Saturday, but maintains it is not the toughest assignment for his career.

Seeing as the Spanish manager inherited a Barcelona team that had Lionel Messi, and then the treble-winning Bayern Munich. Many see Manchester City as a challenge for Guardiola.

However, the 45-year-old maintains spending time at Barcelona will be a tougher test than taking over Manchester City.

“The hardest test is always the first one because without the first one you don’t arrive to the second one,” he told a pre-match news conference.

“I was promoted to coach of Barcelona first team because I was successful in the previous experience with the second team, so [City] is not the hardest one.

“Every one is special. To have success at home is not easy. I moved to Germany and learned German to communicate with the players and the media. In Germany it was always a big challenge.

“Of course it is special for me in the Premier League. I know I will be judged in terms of results but for me I am a lucky guy to be here.”
