Guardiola impresses with his analytical work. He knows every detail of which players he can count on and how to use them at the right time.

PEP has expanded my horizons, he has a completely different vision of football than other coaches. He is always superior to his opponents in terms of thinking and tactics. PEP is the best coach I’ve worked with,” Pizarro said.

Guardiola wants to see Bonucci at Manchester city

Manchester City Manager Josep Guardiola is interested in the transfer of Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci. This is reported by Calciomercato.

According to a source, the coach of the” citizens ” wants to strengthen the line of defense in the summer transfer window, and therefore is interested in the transfer of Bonucci.

Bonucci made his Italian League debut in 2005 with inter. Two years later, he left the Milan club and subsequently played for Treviso, Pisa and Bari, before joining Juventus in 2010. In the 2017/2018 season, Leonardo defended the colors of Milan, after which he returned to the Bianconeri camp. In November 2019, the 32-year-old extended his contract with the club until 2024.

Bonucci has played 34 games for Juventus this season and scored 4 goals. According to the Transfermarkt portal, the cost of the defender is 25 million rubles.

Who is the best young Manchester United player of the season?

When Jose Mourinho first moved to Scott Machimina in the first team “Manchester United”, the instructions were basic and simple. Maintain possession with 8-yard passes, hold your position at the base of the midfield, provide security and stability to the team in a state of constant movement and different phases of attack.

For a player whose style is largely based on dynamics and stamina – both attacking and defending – such individual demands seemed alien. And Scott tried to find support in the family, where he was advised to do as Mourinho wanted. He had to win the trust of the Manager and win his basic credentials before showing his other though stronger sides.

And this was at a time when Mourinho was looking for a reliable player.It was then that he turned his attention to United’s young talent to solve his problem, which later gave rise to the opinion that Mctominay is a simple optional footballer.

Two years later, we see how effective Scotty can be when he is allowed not only to be a soldier on the field, but given complete freedom in contrast to the era of Jose. As you can see from the messages on his Instagram account during the pandemic and self-isolation, he is able to travel 5 km in 17 minutes with minimal expenditure of energy and effort.On the field, this stamina turns into a workable midfielder whose energy can charge teammates.

His five goals are evidence that he can combine actions on the field to move the ball forward with sharp actions near the goal. His last goal at the moment is a precise Curling shot from an incredible distance against Manchester city in the Derby, perhaps the goal seems to be Ederson’s mistake to a greater extent, but for such a completion, at least the player needs courage and good technical talent, which was performed by Scotty. It created a euphoria that hadn’t been there for years at old Trafford, and was accompanied by a mad celebration in the form of a knee-slithering tight muscle that seemed ready to burst, sending fans in the stands and everyone watching the match around the world into ecstasy.

Scotty missed two months of the current season, playing 27 of United’s 47 games, but even that is enough to be the virtual trophy favorite for the club’s best under-23 player. Scotty accelerated his recovery from the injury and returned from the infirmary twice as quickly from the initial prognosis of treatment for an ankle injury sustained in the match against Newcastle at Boxing day.

Aaron van Bissaka is also noteworthy, and there are those who would say with good reason that the 22-year-old should be recognized for an outstanding debut season at United, especially given his work to improve the attacking aspects of his game in recent matches. He worked diligently and followed all the instructions at Carrington to show that he can do more than just stop opponents, but also what he can give to the attack.

For hard work and working on long-range shots in training, which was reflected in the goals scored against city, Arsenal, Norwich and Club Brugge. For his unwavering loyalty to United. For being an example for teammates, to motivate them to play for the club . Showing by personal example that faith and loyalty are the fundamental principles of any great team.

Is Pep Guardiola lucky to lead strong teams in his career? (Part 2)

In the center of the defense, Pep brought John Stones and Aymeric Laporte, the excellent central midfielders. In particular, the deal with Laporte really worth “money for rice bowl”. Pep confirmed the French center-back deserves a price of 57 million pounds.

Most teams attack or counterattack based on the speed of the wingers. In Man City, Laporte plays an important role in speeding the ball forward. The reason given by Pep is that Laporte is left-footed. He always observes and pays attention to every detail to build the football of his will effectively.

“It is important that Laporte is left-footed. When he receives the ball from the right wing, he immediately turns and turns to the left, giving the ball to Leroy Sane. In this position, Laporte will deploy the ball faster than the right footed player.

If the ball goes into the middle, he can coordinate with Riyad Mahrez. Laporte helps Man City have 2 faster deployment plans. The important thing is that City must have left-back center-left, “Pep said in October 2018.

Dark art

In addition, Pep also calculated the error. A central midfielder who receives a yellow card is safer than the defensive players. When facing Man City, you will face foul situations from the middle of the field that experts call tactical foul.

According to Opta, Man City stand 2 and 3 in the percentage of tactical errors in the 2 seasons of 2019/20, 2017/18. Currently, the team leading this stat is Arsenal, the team that just appointed Arteta as the head coach in December 2019.

Gary Neville, a former Man United player, once criticized Pep for applying tactical fouls, but Pep has his own reasons. When the team has more control and attacks, they face the risk of more counterattack. And making tactical mistakes is part of helping them win from stopping goals.

Unlike Neville, the Telegraph appreciated the tactical error from Man City when Fernandinho gave the beautiful phrase: “The pinnacle of dark art”. The Brazilian midfielder plays an extremely important role in the squad that Pep built. He is the person with the most tactical fouls in the City team.



Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer just had talks about the former coach of Manchester United Jose Mourinho while his team, MU has been really taken off with flying colors recently. This team has been undefeatable during 11 successive matches in all championships and tournaments, which surprised every football fan.

According to the Norwegian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, ”special coach” Mourinho has left him with a mess in MU when he was fired in December 2018. However, also thanks to several former players since ”Mourinho” time, along with newbie players that Solsa has brought to MU such as Harry Maguire, Aaron Want-Bussake, Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo, 

MU’s performances are at its high peak throughout history. 

Since taking over MU for Mourinho since December 2018, Solskjaer has canceled 9 playing contracts and signed 4 new transformation ones with other players. 

It is considered to be a revolution for Manchester United’s formation. 

”I always had felt that this team (Manchester United) needs to make changes.” Solskjaer said. ”We have signed new contracts with 4 new players, lost quite a lot of previous good players, formed a new football team with quite a lot of young players. I know that these changes can bring back effectiveness and revolutionary differences.”

”I believe that we are making movements and we are not lost out of the track. Manchester United’s performances are getting better than ever before.”

Is Pep Guardiola lucky to lead strong teams in his career? (Part 1)

Many people think that coach Pep Guardiola is lucky to lead strong teams in his career. However, to have that “luck”, he must be a person with real talent.

On March 1, Man City won the English League Cup after winning 3-1 against Aston Villa in the final. This is the 29th time Pep Guardiola has won the title after 11 years of participating in coaching.

Pep spent 625 official matches with 3 clubs Barcelona, ​​Bayern Munich, and Man City. The Spaniard lost an average of 21.5 matches to win a title. He is one of the coaches who need the fewest matches to win a title in football history. Pep is a true genius with the calculations in how to build the game.

Absolute control

In the summer of 2016, Pep officially left Bayern Munich to take over as the head coach at Man City. At that time, Joe Hart was the captain and goalkeeper of the Etihad Stadium. He was also the main catcher in England’s goal in EURO 2016. In the Premier League, Hart is also one of the top goalkeepers.

However, Pep does not want to use Hart because the English goalkeeper does not play well. He prefers absolute ball control and short passes from the home court are the foundation. With Pep, a long ball to the top up the risk of losing the ball. When Pep was leading Barca or Bayern Munich, he had good goalkeepers like Victor Valdes, Jose Pinto and Manuel Neuer.

He then brought in Claudio Bravo and Ederson Moraes, virtuosity goalkeepers. With Ederson, Man City can deploy the ball in a unique way. Pep directed the two central defenders deep back to attract the opponent striker. At that time, the two full-backs of Man City surged and waited for the correct pass from Ederson. The Brazilian goalkeeper can also pass a short pass to the central midfielder who has retreated. He always gives quality passes.

Ederson is always confident with the ability to handle his feet. He thinks that he can play well in midfield. He used to create assists from the home side to Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling to score.
