EPL: He’s crazy – Ronald Koeman makes claim about Guardiola

Former Barcelona head coach, Ronald Koeman, has claimed that Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, is crazy about football.


Koeman, who said Guardiola is his friend, added that every football player would like to have the Spaniard as their coach.

Koeman and Guardiola were teammates together at Barcelona during their playing days.

The pair enjoyed plenty of success together down the years at the Nou Camp.


The two men have remained close friends ever since and have regularly come up against each other since they moved into the dugout.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Koeman insisted that working under Guardiola should be considered a “pleasure” for the current Man City squad.


Koeman said: “Pep is a really good friend and even last season when City played Liverpool, we had dinner after the game.

“Even then, he was talking football, talking football. He is crazy about football. How can he handle this for a long period? It’s a lot of energy.

“For players to have a manager like Pep, with that energy, you like it. The way he does things, he tries to change football. It’s all about movement, most of the time with the ball.

“For that reason, I think it’s a pleasure for every player to have Pep as their coach.”
