Pep Guardiola

Ronaldinho believes Pep Guardiola will bring the same kind of success to Manchester City as he did at Barcelona. 

In four years at Barcelona between 2008-2012, Guardiola won 14 trophies, including the Champions League twice and three La Liga titles one row.

While he is yet to win any silverware with Man City, Guardiola has enjoyed a brilliant start to his second season in charge, having won all but two games in all compcompetitions. 

And, asked if he can repeat the success he enjoyed at Barca, Ronaldinho is quoted by the Daily Mirror as saying: "I believe so.

"As a player, he was already playing with a very technical mind, so he was playing as a coach, thinking about everything like coach. So he has a deep knowledge of football. 

Ronaldinho also praised his fellow Brazilian Gabriel Jesus, who has scored 10 goals in 17 games for City this season.
