Till date, Pep Guardiola has managed the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich before he decided to manage City. Both these clubs are huge clubs in their respective countries and leagues with a lot of history behind their success. With all due respect to Manchester City, there emergence is only from the last 5-6 years as a title challenging team. They are still getting used to be a top team on a consistent basis and Pep is going to have a problem with that on a regular basis.
