“I don’t think he’ll ever replicate what he did at Barcelona, but that was a high standard”
Sir Alex Ferguson
“English football is not easy. Every foreign coach who has come to England will tell you that.
“Arsene Wenger, after his first few months, was talking about that. Even Jose (Mourinho), after his first season, realised that what he achieved was hard work.
“Pep has got a fantastic work ethic about him and he demands that from all his training sessions. So anyone who says they’re not going to work hard won’t last long, I’m sure of that.
“I don’t think he’ll ever replicate what he did at Barcelona, but that was a high standard. They were the best.
“He has got great coaching ability. There’s no doubt about that. It’s interesting, because it’ll be difficult to match what he did at Barcelona.”
