Litmanen expected Guardiola's success

Speaking to Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo, former Barcelona player Jari Litmanen has said that he expected the success of Barcelona manager Josep Guardiola in his first season as head coach of Barcelona:

"Yes, of course. Pep was one of the best players in the history of the club. He won everything he could win with Barcelona. He knows the philosophy of the club, he knows the people. He knows everything about Barça and the local people admire him.

It might have been easy to start but of course later you have to prove your qualities as a coach and the results were very good, they actually couldn't have been better. It's obvious that he had some great players to count on, but that of course doesn't mean things are easy."

A pity he had so many injuries with us, would have fit in well. Although maybe a little slow.
