Pep Guardiola hails ‘excellent’ Pochettino amid Man Utd ties – ‘You can be a top manager and not win titles’

While silverware isn’t necessarily the best barometer of a manager’s success, the lack of major trophies on Pochettino’s resume has often been used as a stick to beat him.

However, speaking ahead of the game, Guardiola stressed that trophies and knick-knacks are not the essence of elite management. The shade should be applied.

“I’m sure the managers are improving every year. Each season you have a lot of learning. I’m pretty sure he’s a great manager, ”he said.

“You can be a top manager and not win titles. For managers who have a chance to win, it’s because you’re at the best clubs, with a good investment and the best players. It doesn’t mean that managers of the league or not at the top of the Premier League are not excellent managers.
