[2008] Guardiola to be the new manager

this story was publsihed exactly one year ago:

It was probably Catalan television station TV3 who brought the news first but all sources are now saying the same: Barcelona B manager Josep Guardiola (37) has yesterday been chosen to be the new Barcelona manager as of next season.

During a five-hour meeting of the so-called Comisión Delegada (a club committee consisting of the most important board members and the highest ranked management representatives), Barcelona sports director Txiki Begiristain put forward the name of Guardiola as the most suited candidate to replace current manager Frank Rijkaard (45).

After discussion, the proposal of the sports director was approved by the committee. If the Barcelona board gives its consent on Thursday, former Barcelona captain Guardiola will probably be presented as the new Barcelona manager on Sunday the 19th of May, at the end of the current season.

Guess no one can really judge him since we don't know how he is as coach... Risky decision, that's for sure.

It shows nothing on Barca's website so I hope this isn't true but then again they probably wouldnt flash it all over the site

It's not yet official, it's just suddenly all over the media. Which could mean something. Or not. Don't know what to think about the choice, could be really good, but could be really bad too...

i think they should hire a world-class manager for Barca. if Begiristain likes Guardiola that much, he should give him some years to gain some experience, then make him the manager of the team.

Thats why he should be Maurinho's assistant.
