Guardiola hits the 100 mark

Jordi Clos

Pep Guardiola will join an elite group of coaches on Saturday when he takes charge of his 100th official game in charge of FC Barcelona.

The Catalan trainer will become the eighth man to join the centenary club and joins some illustrious names that have coached Barça to the ton mark. Johan Cruyff leads the way with 430 games under his belt, while Frank Rijkaard took charge for 273 games, Marius Michels oversaw 264 matches, Louis van Gaal 200, Terry Venables 169, Ferdinand Daucik 150 and Helenio Herrera 143.

70 wins

Herrera’s record

Goals galore

The other coaches did not fair as well from their first 100 games as Daudik was next with 63 wins, but the coach of the Cinco Copas team saw his side net 302 goals and concede 155. Van Gaal, Herrera and Venables are the other three coaches to win the league title in their first seasons in charge.
