Guardiola approves of Busquets becoming a manager

first_imgMan City manager Pep Guardiola, completely supports the idea of having Sergio Busquets becoming a manager when he hangs up his boots.It was just last week when we shared an interview that Sergio Busquets gave to the news outlets from Barcelona, in which he spoke about how important Josep Guardiola has been for his career.There is a certain poetry in the way that both manager and player have developed their careers, one could even make the argument that ‘Busi‘ is the exact replica of the player Guardiola version due to the staggering similarities that both of them have.It was the Catalan manager who instantly recognized his talent back in 2008 and decided to bring him to the first squad, Busquet’s impact in the team was unheard of and pretty much overnight.After 500 matches played for the Catalan club, the midfielder is already starting to flirt with the idea of possibly becoming a manager and even other roles in football once he hangs up his boots.Once you stop to think about the possibilities for a bit, it’s inevitable to imagine what could actually happen considering how far along Guardiola has come as a manager throughout his career.It’s not even crazy to get excited for what could happen, even Pep confessed that he is thrilled with the idea.He adores Guardiola #mcfc https://t.co/7a90Z9Ac4H— Manchester City News (@ManCityMEN) November 28, 2018This Friday during the press conference ahead of Manchester City’s next Premier League match against Bournemouth, he was questioned about his experience coaching Busquets and the thought of the player possibly following his footsteps.“I was a lucky guy,” Guardiola said, when talking about his experience in Barcelona with Sergio Busquets via Goal.“I would not say it was easy because in the position he started to play, he won that position in front of [Yaya] Toure. That’s why Toure came here to play here.”“At the end it was not complicated because we were together the year before in the fourth division in the second team.”“We knew what he could do and after that it belongs to him. What he has done in his career is because he is so clever, so good.”David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.“He has to be so proud. Playing 500 games at Barcelona is not easy. Hopefully he can play many, many more years but he is not a teenager anymore.”“Sooner or later he will become a manager. We will see Busquets on the bench,” he added.Sergio Busquets and Guardiola revolutionized what it means to be a holding midfielder circa 2008. Prior, the holding midfield role was called as the “Makelele Role”, that jargon died with the emergence of Busquets #ReInventingTheGame #ThePepEffect #Pivot #BuildUpPlay #Tactics https://t.co/SV5n8mO4kX— The Pep (@GuardiolaTweets) November 30, 2018We know it’s too much os a stretch to think about Sergio Busquets reaching the same levels that Pep has achieved in his career, but we are sure that Guardiola will be there to mentor him along the way should he ultimately decide to take this route.We sure will enjoy how far along this tradition has gone, one that started decades ago during the seventies decade.When Rinus Michels began to coach a young Johan Cruyff and took him to complete one of the most impressive careers that any footballer could ever dream of, then the Dutch player becoming a manager and create that legacy that still lives on today through his pupil Pep Guardiola.It will be very rewarding for the Catalan manager to pass the baton to Busquets when the time comes, a beautiful football history lesson that will make anyone gasp with how long it has gestated through time.But for now, we still have a few more years of the player version of Sergio Busquets to enjoy at FC Barcelona.Johan Cruyff 14(Los Angeles Aztecs) and Rinus Michels(head coach of Los Angeles Aztecs) Washington Diplomats1-2Los Angeles Aztecs at RFK Stadium in WashingtonDC, USA, on Sunday, 27 July 1979 Photo by Masahide Tomikoshi / TOMIKOSHI PHOTOGRAPHY pic.twitter.com/t9YrmN8pEO— tphoto (@tphoto2005) November 28, 2018How well do you think Sergio Busquets will do as a manager once he hangs up his boots?

The signal will go into permanent operation on Monday when the ramp re-opens to vehicle traffic. The improvements will make it easier for motorists to access the future Balboa Avenue trolley station once it opens.The closure will necessitate lane reductions on Balboa and Garnet avenues between Mission Bay Drive and Moraga Avenue, according to SANDAG. Only one lane in each direction will be open to vehicle traffic throughout the weekend, although the schedule is subject to change.The weekend work is part of the $2.17 billion Mid-Coast Trolley Blue Line Extension, which includes a planned 11-mile extension of trolley service by MTS from Santa Fe Depot in downtown San Diego to University City. The extension will add trolley stops in Mission Bay Park, UC San Diego and Westfield UTC. SANDAG is receiving $1.04 billion in funding from the Federal Transit Administration to complete the project.The extension and related projects are intended to reduce traffic congestion as the county’s population increases. Construction on the extension began in 2016 and is scheduled to be  completed in 2021. KUSI Newsroom Posted: June 14, 2019last_img read more
