Manchester City may be getting closer to the list of the best European teams after recording a much better performance under the direction of the Spanish manager, Pep Guardiola. However, the manager himself rejected this, because according to him the best European team is now more worthy of being pinned on teams like Juventus, Barcelona and Bayern Munich. He considered these three teams to be very consistent at the top level in the past decade.
In fact, Manchester City has begun to surface since the concerned won the English Premier League for the first time in the 2010/11 season, then recruited the world’s top players through very high dowry. Over the years, the Premier League giants are growing, especially now they are under the direction of top managers, Pep Guardiola who previously brought Barcelona to great success in the period 2008 to 2012.
This season, Manchester City which are directed by Guardiola appears more consistent than in previous seasons, although they are still in second place in the Premier League standings. The fact that they are still on the right track in four competitions this season, many think Citizen is one of the best European teams. But this title was rejected by Pep Guardiola’s manager, because according to him the best European team at the moment is Juventus, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
These three are considered the best because they are able to maintain consistency at the top level for the past decade, win the league and go as far as possible in every competition.
“I always say it repeatedly. Who is the best team in a decade? Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus. The three are the best teams in Europe. Why? Because every season they win the league, the trophy, and always be at the top. Because they are the best,”
“We can’t be like them, but we can imitate them. That is, it can reach the final stage in every competition. Sometimes you are lucky, sometimes not, but all three of these teams are always there. That is what I want. When you do that, that’s when you become a better team. The best teams must be able to emulate the three teams, not the other teams, “said Guardiola.
