Pep Guardiola has been the Manchester City manager since the start of the 2016/17 campaign.
As a player, Guardiola spent the majority of his career at Barcelona but also played for Brescia, Roma, Al-Ahli and Dorados de Sinaloa.
He won six LaLiga titles and lifted the European Cup in 1992, the same year that he won Olympic gold with Spain.
Guardiola's first taste of coaching came as head coach of Barcelona’s B team in June 2007, and he was quickly catapulted to manager of the senior squad the following summer.
He stamped his mark at Camp Nou as his first campaign in charge brought success in the UEFA Champions League, LaLiga and Copa del Rey.
It was the club’s first ever treble and, at 37 years of age, it made Guardiola the youngest manager to lift the UEFA Champions League in history.
In total he would spend four seasons as manager of the Spanish side, winning 14 trophies across six different competitions before taking a break from football after the 2011/12 campaign.
Guardiola returned to coaching ahead of 2013/14 at Bayern Munich. He won three Bundesliga titles on the bounce, with silverware also coming via the DFB-Pokal, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.
After three years in Munich, the former FIFA World Coach of the Year agreed a move to Manchester City for the 2016/17 Premier League season.
Man City finished third and then, in the next campaign, broke the Premier League record for most consecutive wins, with 18 victories between August and December 2017.
Guardiola lifted the first of his eight major trophies in England following a 3-0 win over Arsenal in the 2018 Carabao Cup final.
The Citizens dominated throughout the 2017/18 Premier League season, with Guardiola securing his first league title in English football with a record of 106 goals, 32 wins and 100 points.
His Man City team retained the title the following season, and won it again in 2020/21, while also winning the FA Cup, three more EFL Cups and reaching a UEFA Champions League final.
