Pep Guardiola’s huge European success with Barcelona is no secret, but what is his Champions League record with Bayern and Manchester City?
Pep Guardiola has won almost every trophy under the sun during his time as manager of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City.
He will always be associated with overseeing Barcelona’s golden years, his first full seasons managing the club’s first team, one of the most decorated in club history.
But while Guardiola has savored the glory of the Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup with Manchester City, he has never lifted the Champions League with the Etihad side.
Aim has what you need to know about Guardiola’s Champions League record and more.
How many Champions League titles has Pep Guardiola won?
Guardiola has won two Champions League titles, both as Barcelona coach.
He won his first Champions League title in his debut season in charge of the Barcelona senior team, defeating Manchester United 2-0 in the 2008-09 final.
In doing so, he became the youngest man to coach a Champions League winning team. That same season, Barcelona became the first Spanish team to win La Liga, Copa del Rey and the Champions League (known as the treble) in a single campaign.
His second Champions League trophy came in the 2011 final, two years after the first. The Blaugrana beat Manchester United again in the Wembley final, this time 3-1.
When was the last time Pep Guardiola won the Champions League?
The last time Guardiola won the Champions League was with Barcelona, in 2010-11.
He has never won the Champions League with a team other than Barcelona, or with a team that did not include Lionel Messi, and he has not managed to reach a final with a team other than Barcelona.
With Bayern and Manchester City, the furthest he has gone in the competition is to reach the semi-finals, but never the final.
Guardiola has spoken of his wishes to lift the Champions League trophy with Manchester City, half-joking that part of his legacy at Etihad will be determined by his success in elite European competition.
“Of course, we will not only be judged by the way we play, but also by the titles we win. That’s the truth. It’s that simple, ”Guardiola said.
“Last year was extraordinary for us, but people say, ‘But you didn’t win the Champions League.’ That’s why I’ll be judged, if we don’t win it in my last term here, I’ll be a failure here. I know that.
“But I enjoy working with my players and my players still win a lot of games. Winning in a certain way is what helps you win the titles and we think we can play that way. We’ll see at the end. “
