Guardiola vs. Ferguson: success meets success

Anna Segura

On Saturday, Pep Guardiola will be out to equal Sir Alex Ferguson by taking his second Champions League title as a manager, but he’s still got a way to go to equal the Scots’ 36 titles won over 25 years with Manchester United.

Guardiola vs. Ferguson: success meets success

Pep is just finishing his third season in charge at the Camp Nou, whilst Sir Alex will mark a quarter of a century as United boss in November and next Saturday the two will meet for the second time in a Champions League final, with Pep one up so far after the win in Rome two years ago.

Ferguson, 36 trophies in 25 years

His team won the Premier League three years on the run between 2006 and 2009 and in 1999 won the treble of League, Cup and Champions League with their dramatic win over Bayern at the Camp Nou.

Guardiola averaging 3 titles a year

Guardiola is the first ever Barça manager to take the league title three years on the run in his first three years in the job and his team have also won the Champions League in 2009, the Spanish Cup in 2009, the Spanish Super Cup in 2008 and 2009, the European Super Cup in 2009 and the World Club Cup in 2009.

That means that Guardiola’s record, though much shorter than Ferguson’s shows a better average, with 3 titles a season, against the United manager’s 1.44 a year.
