Vanderlei Luxemburgo has downplayed the achievement of Pep Guardiola as a coach, adding that Carlo Ancelotti is the best coach in the world

“Guardiola won a lot of titles at Barcelona, but now they have Luis Enrique and they win the same,” the Brazilian said in an interview with Fox Sport.

Luxemburgo, currently without a team, was critical of Guardiola for not repeating the success he had with Barcelona with Bayern. He says he didn’t have the same success as his predecessor, Jupp Heynckes.

It’s a curious complaint given the Catalan coach won three Bundesligas and two German Cups, among other trophies, during a three-year stay in Munich.

“Guardiola went to Bayern Munich, he prepared, he learned the language and he didn’t achieve the same [as Heynckes], who won the treble at 70 years old, but [Pep] didn’t,” he affirmed.

Luxemburgo went a step further, comparing him to Ancelotti: “He was a champion in Milan, in Madrid… I think that for Guardiola to prove he’s better he will have to win with Manchester City.”

According to the Brazilian coach, Guardiola will only convince him “if he wins with Manchester City”, the club he took over in the summer.
