Jamie Redknapp says ‘genius’ Pep Guardiola could EVER be the best manager

Jamie Redknapp labeled Pep Guardiola a ‘genius’ after Manchester City took a deserved victory over Tottenham in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final.

City were the better team in a fairly dull game, with Aymeric Laporte scoring the only goal in the 82nd minute after being lucky enough to avoid a red card earlier.

The win saw Guardiola claim the trophy for the fourth year in a row and Redknapp was full of praise.

“There was a huge gap in the classroom,” he said on Sky Sports. ‘Yes, Laporte should have been sent off in the first half and it’s amazing how often that happens, the man who could have been sent away scores the winner.

‘But they are a joy to watch, if you like to watch football, you also like to watch Manchester City. The way they move it, the triangles, it’s a joy to watch. Pep Guardiola, I think he’s a genius, the players will run through brick walls for him. The football they play in the midfield, from behind, it’s a joy and they were far superior. ‘

‘Is he the best ever? I personally think with the style of football he plays, how humble he is, the way he improves players, I think he is the best ever. All for whatever happens from here.

‘There was always that argument when he was in Barcelona that he had Messi, Iniesta, Xavi. But now wherever he goes you see the progression, the improvement. And this year is arguably the most successful year.

After eight games, they were 14th in the league, with everyone wondering if they had lost their appetites and if the players were no longer running for him. He has proven that this is not the case. They have won 21 games, which is scary. To see them now, the Premier League is all but sown. Wednesday is going to be huge for them now, he knows how important it is that you can see it in his eyes. ‘

Micah Richards, however, thinks he should win a Champions League with City to really earn that title.

“The League Cups are huge, but the Champions League takes him to the next level,” he said.

‘He didn’t win in Bayern with all those top players, he won it in Barcelona, ​​but he really had a good Bayern side. I think the credit I can give him is the way he developed the game.

‘From the youth on, the first team plays, it doesn’t matter who he places in that team, they all play the same way. That’s the difference in the process and everyone buys. ‘
