No only the FC Barcelona fracasó a year more in the Champions League. A day afterwards did it also the Manchester City of Pep Guardiola, a technician that after obtaining the European glory with the Barça in 2009 and 2011, has not gone back to conquer never the maximum European competition of clubs in spite of his three years like technician in the Bayern Munich and the four campaigns that accumulates in the Etihad Stadium.

The antiguardiolistas celebrated with euphoria that the Manchester City, once again, was deleted in the quarter-finals against all prognosis, and tumbara like this the options to see a vibrant City-Bayern in semifinals. The antiguardiolistas remembered then that Pep has been unable to conquer the Champions in seven seasons heading to European powers, in which it has had of big economic possibilities for fichar to any player.

More than 1.000 million euros has spent already the Manchester City from the arrival of Guardiola in signings, and the Bayern also spent to mansalva when the one of Sampedor was the visible face of his bench. The antiguardiolistas, in this sense, argue that if Guardiola won two Champions with the Barça was because it found with the best generation of footballers of the history.

It will be true? It was or no like this, what is undoubted is that so much to the Barça as to Guardiola has gone them better together that separated. Although it is true that the FC Barcelona conquered a new triplete in 2015 of the hand of Luis Enrique, and that has gone winning leagues and glasses with the step of the years, never has gone back to show this hegemonic command that lucía with Guardiola in the footpath.

If Guardiola wanted to, the place would be his

The one of Sampedor also has won leagues and national titles with Bayern and City, but has not achieved to endow to his teams of the defensive security neither the balance in the game that yes had his Barça. Speak now of a future reunion between FC Barcelona and Guardiola results opportunist, and for many also utopian. But the seen in the past says us that, together, his characteristics improve .

The Catalan technician is more questioned that never in the Manchester City after the new European failure, but in spite of all foresees that it continue in the bench 'citizen' a campaign more. And the Barça will sack to Setién, with Koeman like main candidate to relieve him. If Guardiola wanted to, the place would be his. But the one of Sampedor is of which thinks that second parts never were good, and it is necessary to respect it. An impossible love.
