In the last decade, one coach, in particular, has stood out, due to the titles and goals achieved, and the way his teams play, which are close to perfection in many moments. We are talking about Pep Guardiola, who has pulverized records wherever he has trained and has done so with a very characteristic style of play that is tremendously attractive to the viewer.
FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Manchester City have been teams that, regardless of the football idiosyncrasies of each club and country; They have had a fairly similar style of play (although with certain nuances in each club, of course): taste and exquisite treatment of the ball, overwhelming possession, high pressure and absolute prominence for midfielders and footballers with great ball handling.
Examples, there are many, but the most illustrative is, undoubtedly, the conversion of Leo Messi to ‘false 9’, which elevated his career from 2-6 at the BernabÃ©u. This makes him, also with little room for discussion, one of the best coaches in the history of football, but what is his record? How many titles have you won as a coach and what are your records and records?

”PEP GUARDIOLA HAS WON 32 TITLES AS A COACH DIVIDED BETWEEN FC BARCELONA, â€‹â€‹FC BAYERN AND MANCHESTER CITY”
One of the technicians with the most titles won in history. With this characteristic style, Pep Guardiola has managed to caress the honeys of football glory on countless occasions, winning all the titles he has held and to have, without exception. Perhaps, the exception that confirms this rule is the Champions League that escaped him with Bayern, and the same pending account that has to be settled in Manchester.
There is no doubt that the Catalan coach has had the immense luck of training top-level footballers, and even some of them will go down in history as the best footballers in their country, or even the best in the world: Xavi HernÃ¡ndez, AndrÃ©s Iniesta, Robert Lewandowski, Kevin De Bruyne â€¦ and a very long etcetera (of course, Leo Messi would deserve a separate chapter). However, it is equally unquestionable that, wherever it has happened, Sampedor has made his players better, with changes in position or the inclusion of nuances that have boosted their careers.
Pep Guardiola Coaching Record with FC Barcelona:
Pep Guardiola came to the bench of the first team culÃ© leaving certain doubts in the Blaugrana fans, since, although he was a legend of the club, his history as a coach was quite short: until then he had only achieved a promotion with the BarÃ§a subsidiary.
However, and since his presentation on June 17, 2008, his career would live an incredible ascent, climbing title to title.
Although he began his career in the league as BarÃ§a coach with a defeat (1-0 in Soria, against Numancia), little by little the doubts would dissipate, to the point of smashing several records in Can BarÃ§a and in LaLiga, being able to highlight:
- 16 consecutive victories in the League (2010/11). This record would later be equaled by Real Madrid between the 15/16 and 16/17 seasons.
- 23 undefeated away games in the league, starting in the 2009/2010 season and throughout most of the 2010/2011 season.
- Best first round in history, with 52 points, in the 2010/2011 season. This record was surpassed by Tito Vilanova’s BarÃ§a in the 2012/2013 season.
- 31 league victories. ( Real Madrid surpassed him in his last year with 32 and Tito Vilanova would reach 32 in 2012/13).
- 12 consecutive away victories in La Liga (2008/09 and 2009/10). Real Madrid broke the record with 13 (2009-10 and 2016/17).
- Only team with 6 titles in the same calendar year (2009): (League, King’s Cup, UEFA Champions League, Spanish Super Cup, European Super Cup, Club World Cup).
- Second club with the complete podium in the Ballon d’Or (2010: Messi, Iniesta and Xavi). Only antecedent: AC Milan in 1988 and 1989.
- First time that the same team takes Zamora and Pichichi (2009/10): VÃctor ValdÃ©s (0.63) and Lionel Messi (34 goals).
- He never lost as Barcelona coach at the Santiago BernabÃ©u .
- In total, the titles won by Guardiola with the club of his loves were:
|European Super Cup||2|
|Club World Cup||2|
However, despite all the trophies won and records pulverized, a dressing room that seemed to start to rebel against the Sampedor coach, made Pep make the decision to leave ‘his’ FC Barcelona. After a sabbatical year, the Catalan coach arrived in Munich, where he would also end up conquering everything, except for the Champions League.
Pep Guardiola Coaching Record with Bayern:
Guardiola’s main milestones with Bayern were:
- The first team to link ten consecutive Champions League victories.
- Fastest Bundesliga title, achieved with 7 days to go.
- The longest winning streak in a row in the Bundesliga: 19 in a row.
- Longest unbeaten streak in Bundesliga matches.
- Best start in Bundesliga.
- Best away winning streak in Bundesliga.
- Best scoring streak in history in the major leagues, with 65 games in a row scoring goals.
Thus, the titles that Pep Guardiola won in Bavaria, the result of these great records, were the following:
|European Super Cup||1|
|Club World Cup||1|
Pep Guardiola Coaching Record with Manchester City:
After very successful seasons in Germany, the Catalan coach decided to embark on a new adventure, in what is considered by many to be the most competitive league in the world: the Premier League. Although in his current position as coach of Manchester City Pep and his team have had some ups and downs more than in his time as coach of Barca and Bayern; the truth is that his career is also being very successful.
Thus, despite the fact that in his first season he did not win any title for the first time in his career, in the second he would already win the League Cup and the Premier League (2017-2018), beating all records and for having:
- Record of points achieved (100).
- The greater margin of points with respect to the second classified (19).
- Record of victories (32). In the 2018-2019 season, City itself would once again equal this record.
- Record of goals in favor (106).
- Record in goal difference (+79).
- Most points as visitors (50).
- Most wins away (16).
- Record of victories in a calendar month in the entire history of English football (9).
- Win all rivals, at least once, in the same season (2017-2018 and (2018-2019).
- First coach to win the domestic treble in England (2018-2019).
All these incredible records, with which he has swept the United Kingdom, have allowed Pep Guardiola to hold the following list of honors:
Thus, Pep has won nine Leagues, five Cups, five Super Cups, four Community Shields, two Champions League, three European Super Cups, and three Club World Cups; an absolutely spectacular track record to which many titles have yet to reach.
We can say that the only minimal strain on Guardiola’s record is not having been able to get a Champions League without Messi, something that has already resisted him since 2011. In fact, in the 2020/2021 season, he has lost the final of the Champions League against Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea.
Soccer is a sport in which, normally, the protagonism is occupied by the players. Simple summaries will say that, indeed, this is so: football is a sport in which 22 people “run after the ball.” However, the soccer tradition shows us that this sport is much more complex and attends to an infinity of variables.
Within these infinities of possibilities, we must pay attention to the importance of the coach, who is ultimately responsible for a team’s soccer success. Unfortunately, it is a very ungrateful position: the coach will be the focus of criticism when something does not work, and will not enjoy much prominence when a team achieves its objectives.
And when it comes to coaches, there are different types, but we will simplify the equation and divide them into two groups: those that adapt to the characteristics of their team to train a style of play, and those that are faithful to a form. specific game to play, regardless of the team they train.
Is Guardiola for you the best coach in the history of football? Who do you think could overcome it?
