Recent look at statistics show how the career path of pep guardiola and possible suggestions the current city manager is so scared of failure, he tends to only stay when success is all but assured and where he has little or no pressure. While many will say pep has brought success to every team he has been to, the statistics show pep may not do the same should he have been in the similar positions to other managers such as Jose is doing with Manchester United currently.
Pep guardiola career path has seen him travel from Barcelona to Bayern Munich and now Manchester City. One thing each of these teams have in common during the era of pep is the u injection of resources and lack of pressure or need to perform. Unlike his counter part Jose who has seen success at Porto, inter Milan, real Madrid, Chelsea and bow currently at united.
Pep guided Barcelona to champions league glory during a time when Barcelona where neither in dare need for performance and seemingly left when the position became too heated to handle, he then moved to Bayern Munich and despite the injection of resource failed to muster a Champions league finals performance, a failure which pushed him to seeking greener pastures at Manchester City at a time the citizens were ready to inject as much as possible to secure a little success.
While most would bite jose for spending, pep has spent over a billion in just three about 3 teams. The most recently his total over haul of city’s defence, spending over 270m on a defence which still remains the teams biggest flaw. It’s no argument that hose would do a better job with the defensive options guardiola has. Since taking over city, pep has spent an average of about 50m on a single player also considering he has bought over ten players in his two seasons including Walker, bravo, Ederson, laporte, Johnstones, mendy, gundogan, Kevin De byrune, Gabriel Jesus, nolito, Leroy sane, danilo.
Jose however has only seen the likes of Paul pogba, Henrick(exchanged for alexis), Bailley, nemanja matic, lukaku and Zlatan Come in since taking over.
Maybe is a little harsh to call the manager a gold digger but it’s what the stats show.
