    Last season he accomplished more than anyone else in the Premier League era.
    Even comparing Pep with such duds as Pellegrini is ....

    Personally I view him more as a president in the future then Pique.

    “Pep Guardiola lacks empathy, Jürgen Klopp taught me everything” - Mario Götze

    Götze left for Guardiola’s Bayern in 2013, keen to play under the Spanish tactician, but things failed to work out for the former prodigy who returned to Dortmund in 2016 having only started 59 of a possible 102 Bundesliga matches for the record champions.

    Perhaps unsurprisingly, Götze today is glowing in his praise of Klopp.

    “I’m still in touch with Jürgen,” Götze told DAZN. “Of course, he taught me everything about professional football. At that time, I was just 17 and coming up from the youth team. He introduced me to everything. He let me play.”

    It as a period which stands in stark contrast to what Götze experienced in his three seasons at the Allianz Arena.

    “Technically, [Guardiola] was a tremendous asset,” he said. “But he is very focused on the game and doesn’t think about players outside of his plan. He didn’t have much empathy, and empathy is part of being a world-class coach.”

    Be interesting to see how Pep gets on long term at a club.

    Will the players be able to go with his intense approach year after year?

    He has never really had to rebuild a side and let go of players that have done it for him in the past either.

    Got quite a young team. Don't have a lot of pieces to rebuild. I think having so many young players that still haven't won much will help in this regard.

    "If you had an injury - it's as simple as it heals again". Sheesh. Seems a type of human and parent who will be mad at your for getting an A instead of an A+.

    Not sure if I'd rather play for him or Mourinho.
    People are boring.

    Lol, being a manager now means you gotta cuddle and parent your players now?

    he is weak minded willing to blame maybe everyone but himself, if he loved Klopp so much maybe he shouldn't of abandoned his team that gave him everything to leave for their rival.
    but no it's guardiolas fault for not fitting or doing good enough..

    oh and he's a racists against white people too now

    Jerome Boateng and Joshua Kimmich certainly liked it under Pep.

    Sad for Götze, but every person is different. Klopp's lack of ruthlessness is the reason Karius still played for them and flopped hard in the CL final.

    Besides, that quote is not from Pep. It's Gotze talking about normal injuries v the other disease he got that might have messed up his career.

    Yeah I know. But it shows his relationship with Pep, which no doubt seems like a stone cold one. Pep's lack of attachment to certain personalities and inability to get through to some heads is his biggest flaw really. He keeps everyone on a leash, stifles expression and, in my subjective view, his football often lacks soul as a result of this sort of coaching. It's ruthless and often times mean AF, but gets results. Does it get remembered? Sure. He's like a Rolex in the world of watches.

    Obviously. People like Cristina Cubero at MD are scum. Making up shit all the time, sometimes to paint people they hate, like Pep, as villains which she tried with the "Pep is stealing Iniesta from Barcelona and convincing him to join another European team!".

    Who cares what his personality is like, it works. 23 trophies in 10 years as manager speaks for itself, anything else is nowhere near as important.

    Every great coach has/had his negative traits. SAF had them, Pep has them. It's a part of what make them great.
