Pep Guardiola is one of the most outstanding coaches of recent times. The Spaniard has shown important things with all the teams he has been in. During his time at Manchester City, the Spaniard has shown why he is one of the best coaches in the world. Since his arrival, the Etihad Stadium team has proven its dominance year after year.

Because of this, the team has been improving considerably, enough to manage to lift the UEFA Champions League last season. Similarly, Pep Guardiola's team won the Premier League and the FA Cup, thus the team won the treble, consolidating itself as one of the best teams in Europe and even the world. With names like Erling Haaland, Kevin de Bruyne and others, City marked an era.

Despite starting this tournament well, things got complicated little by little, especially in the month of October. After the defeat to Newcastle United, Guardiola's team suffered two more defeats against Wolverhampton and Arsenal. In view of this, everything seemed to indicate that a crisis with the Citizens was beginning. Due to poor results, the team lost the lead of the Premier League.

Nevertheless, yesterday Manchester City was recovering ground and win against Brighton with goals from Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland. Despite The Seagulls trying, the home team's forcefulness was imminent. It should be noted that Haaland is one of the nominees for this year's Ballon d'Or. In light of this, Pep Guardiola spoke a little about the subject and even gave a prediction.

Who deserves to win the Ballon d'Or for Pep Guardiola

It should be noted that Pep Guardiola has had the opportunity to manage several players. Among the players he was able to manage during his time at FC Barcelona was Lionel Messi, who is nominated for the Ballon d'Or along with Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe. In a post-match press conference against Brighton, the Spaniard said that both Haaland and Messi deserve it because of the things they have both done.
