Sir Alex Ferguson and Pep Guardiola are two of the greatest football managers of all time. It was a bold statement to put Guardiola in the conversation with Sir Alex a long time ago, but after his recent success in the Premier League with Manchester City, it is not bold anymore. Ferguson and Guardiola coached some of the best teams football has ever seen, and that includes coaching some of the best players in the world. Ferguson coached a young Cristiano Ronaldo while Pep Guardiola coached a young Lionel Messi. Both are important figures in the game, but their former player chooses who the best is between the two.

Gerard Pique played for both Manchester United and FC Barcelona during his career. Pique played at Man United from 2004 to 2008. He featured a few games because he was very young but he was trained under Sir Alex Ferguson. Then he returned to FC Barcelona in 2008 and coached under Pep Guardiola from 2008 to 2012.

Pique recently praised Pep Guardiola and considers him as the best coach of all time. Pique said, "Pep Guardiola? He is a genius; for me, he is already the best coach in history, and that is a lot to say, but recognition will come with time and with context. He is spectacular: his level of control of what happens in the field; how he reads the games; how he anticipates what is going to happen; in looking for solutions; he knows how to motivate, and he has leadership."

Pique continues and says, "He has everything. He is a genius, and he coincided with the best generation of players that have been in Spain. A brilliant coach with a hungry group and very good quality. It is impossible to imitate Guardiola because he has changed the way many teams play."

Gerard Pique admits to miss football

Pique retired in November 2022 and says he misses the feeling of being a footballer. Pique said, "I miss the locker room, going every morning, talking about life with teammates, competing. The fact of winning everything will give it even more importance in the future. When they all retire, more importance will be given to what was achieved at that time [At Barca]."
