“I am sure that, being in a difficult league, Guardiola will be prepared to do well in it”
Pellegrini insists winning a domestic title in Spain or Germany is a doddle compared to England.
When asked if Guardiola will find it a shock he said: “Of course – it’s a new challenge if it’s your first time in this league.
“I’m not just talking about Guardiola, I am also talking about myself, in the first year I arrived here.
“I am sure that, being in a difficult league, Guardiola will be prepared to do well in it.
“You are preparing for it during your whole career. You are playing in the Champions League against English teams and seeing English games every week, but it’s not the same as living it every week here in the Premier League.”
