As soon as the game between Leeds and Manchester City ended, Bielsa approached Guardiola and asked him what he thought of the game. Guardiola was surprised by the question and replied that he could not analyze the game so quickly as to give him an interesting answer.
Guardiola, who has Bielsa as his idol, believes that he is not smart enough to analyze the game seconds after it ends, but that he does believe that Bielsa is capable. All he could tell him was that it had been a great game and that the match between Leeds and Manchester City had been the fairest result.
Neither team could beat the other on the field nor did it seem more like a chess match than a soccer match. Both Bielsa and Guardiola are two coaches who love tactics and use the other as an example to get things done. That is why every tactical move was very important.
Guardiola really enjoyed facing his idol and the same Bielsa said. They are two of the best valued coaches in the world and with a great flair for public speaking. The fans of Leeds, Manchester City and the entire Premier League are really happy to have Bielsa and Guardiola in their league
