Is Pep Guardiola the greatest manager of all-time? Former Man City star Dietmar Hamann explains why he isn’t

The Catalan coach has delivered a remarkable era of success at the Etihad Stadium, with the Premier League crown captured for the fifth time in the space of six years and for the third season in a row. Many are now suggesting that the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss sits among the best to have ever graced a dugout, with his CV certainly pointing towards such a standing.

Hamann, though, is not convinced that Guardiola will ever rub shoulders with the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson – even if he goes on to emulate the former Manchester United manager’s treble triumph in 2023 – with the 52-year-old having achieved his success while working at clubs loaded with world-class talent and the deepest of pockets.
