Josep "Pep" Guardiola Sala - The current manager of Manchester City and former player and legend of the game.
Most of us know Pep as the mastermind behind the "Tiki Taka" style of play, but Pep is much more then just a legendary coach. He is regarded as one of the best players of his generation, Guardiola was a creative and technically gifted midfielder who usually played in a deep-lying playmaking role as a defensive midfielder. In this role, he was the leader of Johan Cruyff's dream team in 1992.
Having served as captain of both Barcelona and the Spanish national side, he also stood out for his leadership throughout his career. Guardiola's unique playing style, which relied on creativity, technique and ball movement, rather than physicality and pace, inspired several future diminutive Spanish playmaking midfielders, such as Xavi, Andrés Iniesta, and Cesc Fàbregas.
His unique vision on the game, and his oustanding leadership is what makes Guardiola one of the household names in the beautiful game of football.

There were only two English teenagers named in the top 10 of CIES' most promising footballers under the age of 20 list...🇬🇧
1️⃣ Everton's Tom Davies (19) was the highest-ranked English player coming in at seventh. 👏🏼 🔵
2️⃣ Fulham baller Ryan Sessegnon (17) came in at 10th on the list. 👌🏼
Well deserved - but surely there's a few more young English players that should have been on there? 🤦🏼♂️
We won two world cups last Summer?! 😂🏆
