Former Liverpool midfielder, Jamie Redknapp has hailed Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola the greatest manager in history ahead of Manchester United legend, Sir Alex Ferguson.
Guardiola has led City to their fifth Premier League title in six years.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has now lifted 11 league titles in 14 seasons.
He joins Ferguson as one of only two managers to have won the Premier League in three consecutive years.
Redknapp believes Guardiola is ahead of 13-time title winner Ferguson, because of how his preferred playing style has transformed modern football.
“He has changed peoples’ perception of the game. You have midfield players and defenders going into different areas, playing out, splitting defences, and for me, he is the greatest ever.
“He has won 11 domestic titles in the 14 years he’s been a manager, 28 major trophies. You can talk about Sir Alex Ferguson, Bill Shankly as well. There have been some amazing managers.
“But for me, he has changed football forever,” Redknapp said on Sky Sports.
