One of the great managers of all time, Pep Guardiola, he thinks that FC Barcelona is yet to a lean period in which the same scenario happened to Manchester City since the departure of star forward captain Cristiano Ronaldo and if the star forward captain Lionel Messi will leave Barca in the future. For the record, the Argentinian professional football player spent his whole career in Catalunya after he leaves his native Rosario to Barcelona within his early teens. Messi responded on his Instagram account to an interview provided by the team’s director in which he recommends precise no-name individuals were not providing 100%. He stated:

“I think that when you talk about players, you should give names because otherwise, you are tainting everyone’s name.”

The team has since shifted to cope down the gossips of a breach, and with coach Quique Setien satisfying that Lionel was his regular “smiling” self in drilling on Wednesday. Real Madrid already experienced that it is like losing an idol and enduring unproductive 2018 to 2019 season after Cristiano’s transfer to Juventus getting three Champions League titles for his last three seasons. Guardiola knows this team and Messi better than most following as a former manager to guide the club to glory, he also informed his old employers they must gear themselves for the possible departure of their superstar forward. Manchester City boss discussed with Post United when asked regarding on Real Madrid’s post-Cristiano Ronaldo struggling and he stated:

“It is inevitable, these players are so important, when Messi leaves Barca they will need some time to re-adjust. It is inevitable. These guys score 40 or 50 goals a season.”

For a duration of more than 20 years, Pep spent his time as a player and coach, a long way that breaks in 2012 along with his resignation from the team. The previous four terms have gone down at the folklore side, FC Barcelona getting three La Liga championships, two titles in Champions League and a sum of 14 trophies. This team is considered as one of the greatest clubs to ever play the football game. However, there is an interesting one game that really stands out for the coach and that’s a 6 – 2 domination of Real Madrid within the Bernabeu back then in May 2009 on their path to the title in La Liga. He stated:

“When people ask me about the title I’ve won that gets me most excited in my career as a manager, I say that it’s the first league I won with Barcelona. The first La Liga we won, we won it there. That 2 – 6 came on the back of 12 victories in a row for them. They lost the next four. We knew that if we lost that games with the team that they had, it would have been difficult. It was a great day.”
