All stars who did not suit Guardiola
The goalkeeper of Manchester City Joe Hart and other stars that didn’t suit Josep Guardiola.
We suggest to recollect all players who witnessed the same fate.
The Brazilian was out of this world for two years from 2004 to 2006. He was the best player of the world and rightfully earned the nickname “Wizard”. However, his star started to fade too quick. When Guardiola had come to Barcelona, Ronaldinho was already not so good. Nevertheless he was one of the best football players in the world.
The Spanish coach decided to remove him from the team as he was afraid of an negative impact of Ronaldinho on a rising star of Lionel Messi. The owner of the Ballon d’Or-2005 moved to Milan.
The Portuguese Brazilian left a team together with Ronaldinho at once after Guardiola’s coming.There were no authorities for Guardiola. He got rid of players who returned to the club a former glory without any doubt.
Guardiola relied on pupils of the club Iniesta and Xavi, and Deco has gone to conquer an EPL as a part of Chelsea.
We have to note the team left such players veterans as Lilian Thuram, Gianluca Zambrotta and Edmílson.
● Yaya Touré
Touré was young and very prospective player in Barcelona. He played two seasons under the leadership of Guardiola, on many lines including the central defense.
However, Sergio Busquets started to progress significantly. Later on, he became for Guardiola No. 1 of the basic midfielder. Touré was sold to Manchester City in 2010.
● Samuel Eto’o
Guardiola intended to sell the Cameroonian forward at once in 2008 together with Ronaldinho and Deco, however Samuel did not want to leave.
Eto’o finished 2008/09 season in the team by a victorious goal in MU gate in the Champions League final. However, he became a part of the transfer contract in off-season to Barca of our next hero.
● Zlatan Ibrahimović
The Swede came to Blaugranas in exchange for Samuel Eto’O and a solid monetary compensation. However, the style of his game and a manner of behavior hardly suited the Spanish tutor.
Ibra has spent a season in Catalonia. Later on, the rumors about his conflict with Guardiola began to spread and he was leased to Milan.
● Bastian Schweinsteiger
The champion of large tournaments spent two seasons under the leadership of Guardiola. However, the legendary Bavarian, the favourite of all fans of Munichers, became unnecessary to Guardiola as well.
Perhaps, parting with Bastian was the most difficult to Guardiola because communication of the player with fans of club was tremendous. The football player was a symbol of Bavaria for a long time. Nevertheless, the Bavarian moved to MU where he became needless to another great coach.
● Joe Hart
The first number of England national team is out of Pep’s great plans. One of the few players, a symbol of the Citizens, remained on a bench in the first two matches of season against Sunderland and Steaua.
It was reported that Mancity were ready to leave the player for 30 million EURO. The goalkeeper, in his turn, already looked for a new haven.
