As Manchester City announced the signing of Txiki Begiristain, former Barcelona technical secretary, all eyes turned again to Pep Guardiola. Santpedor coach, who continues to enjoy his sabbatical in New York, he worked closely with Begiristain in Barcelona and the connection between the two could benefit Guardiola landing at Etihad Stadium.
If so, would complete the cycle ‘barcelonizacion’ being experienced by the City, who first joined Ferran Soriano (former vice president of Barca economic) as CEO, which has continued with the signing of Txiki and already thinking about the culmination of his work.
Guardiola could establish the philosophy of ‘tiqui-taca’ in the combined English and methods would be far Roberto Mancini, who was beginning to exhaust the credit he earned last season after winning the Premier League. The results of the discrete group stage of the Champions League (only scored one point from a possible nine) have placed him in the spotlight and his place on the bench citizen could be at serious risk.
For the English club’s board that Guardiola was over from Italy would be a real treat, perhaps, can work Begiristain. This, of course, be at the Manchester City a work similar to that performed in Barcelona and will support the coach on the first signings and team management . He has signed for three seasons.
