Mauricio Pochettino

Espanyol were eight points adrift at the bottom when Pochettino took over while Barca were on their way to a historic treble as they beat Manchester United to add the Champions League to a domestic double.

That Barca side included Thierry Henry, Samuel Eto’o and Yaya Toure as well as Nou Camp legends Leo Messi, Carles Puyol, Xavi and Andres Iniesta.

Guardiola inherited a wealth of talent when he was promoted from coaching Barca’s B side while at the time Pochettino was completing his coaching badges across town by helping out with Espanyol’s ladies team.

“I was never manager,” said Pochettino.

“It was a great experience, it helped me to know the female football psychology, the passion to play professional football.
