You redefined the art of passing – A small tribute to Guardiola

In the age, where managers encourage diving and playing defensive, there was one who redefined how football is played. The Art of passing was made even more beautiful by this man and the team who he lead. He made Barcelona the most feared football team in the world. Thank you Pep Guardiola for whatever you have done and would have wished that you go on and on at Barcelona but not all wishes come true. You are the best.

“When they signed him I said: ‘Madre mía, we’re going to be flying,'” Xavi has recalled. “I swear it. He’s a perfectionist. If Pep decided to be a musician, he would be a good musician. If he wanted to be a psychologist, he would be a good psychologist. He is obsessive; he would keep going until he got it right. He demands so much from himself. And that pressure that he puts on himself, those demands are contagious – it spreads to everyone. He wants everything to be perfect. He is a pesado.” Heavy. Hard-working. Intense.
