David Puig / Manel Tomàs

Josep Guardiola has won, as a player and manager, 9 of the 11 league titles that Barça have won over the last 20 years. Guardiola has now won 25 official trophies, ahead of Miguel Munoz, Real Madrid player and coach, who won 23.

Guardiola, King of League Titles

The FC Barcelona manager, Josep Guardiola, can boast, amongst many other things, that he has the most number of titles won by a player and a manager for the same club in Spain. The third league title won this season can be added to the 24 titles he had already won as a player and later as first team manager of FC Barcelona. Guardiola exceeds the number of titles won by Miguel Munoz as a player and manager of Real Madrid, who won 23, in the years 1948-58 and 1959-74.

Protagonist in 9 of the last 11 league titles

celebracix_Lliga_x125x.JPGFC Barcelona has won 11 league titles in the last 20 years, of which, in 9 of those Pep Guardiola has played a big part. As a first team player, Guardiola won six league titles (1990/91, 1991/92, 1992/93, 1993/94, 1997/98 and 1998/99). The first four he won as a member of the Dream Team led by Johan Cruyff, whilst in the last two he was Barca`s captain in the team managed by Louis van Gaal.

To these six league titles can be added the three consecutive titles he’s won since he took over as manager of the first team in June 2008. Three seasons, three league titles, a perfect record.

16 titles wearing the Barça shirt

In the 11 seasons he wore Barca´s first team shirt, they won 16 trophies: 1 European Cup (1991/92), 1 Cup Winners Cup (1996/97), 2 European Super Cups (1992/93 and 1997/98), 6 league titles (1990/91, 1991/92, 1992/93, 1993/94, 1997/98 and 1998/99), 2 Spanish Cups (1996/97 and 1997/98) and 4 Spanish Super Cups (1991/92, 1992/93, 1994/95 and 1996/97).

This track record as a player is better that of Miguel Munoz, who as a Real Madrid player (1948-58) won 9 titles (4 Leagues, 3 European Cups and 2 Latin Cups) and later as manager (1959-74) he won 14 more.

9 titles as manager

While the Champions League Final still has to be played, on May 28th, Pep Guardiola carries an impressive track record as a manager, despite his youth and his brief career in that role. Three seasons, nine titles, an average of three per season. In his debut season for Barça they won everything: Champions, League, and Spanish Cup. In the following season, more trophies were to come, winning the European Super Cup, the Spanish Super Cup, the World Club Championship and his second consecutive League title. In the current season Guardiola already has two trophies: the Spanish Super Cup and League. Now he has the chance to win the fourth Champions League title in the Club’s history.
