Do YOU Still Remember?
So, back in 2019, Pep had the following to say, regarding his opinion on who the best teams in the world were:
What are the best teams in the last decade?” Guardiola said.
“There are three: Juventus, Bayern Munich and Barcelona.
“These are the best three teams in the last decade in Europe.
“Why? Because every season they win the league, every season they win the cups, and every season they are there. Because they are the best.”
While it’s hard to argue that Real Madrid could and should have been better domestically, the above sure came back to haunt him yesterday. Still, one has to wonder whether he considers 4 UCL wins in 5 years a big achievement... Considering his results in the UCL in the last 10 years... you know...
While we’re on the Topic...
