Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has named Marcelo Bielsa as the best coach in the world.

Bielsa has been confirmed to take over at Ligue 1 side, Lille next season and Guardiola has used the opportunity to hail the Argentine’s influence on his own tactical plans.

“My admiration for Marcelo Bielsa is huge because he makes the players much, much better,” Guardiola said on Monday.

“Still, I didn’t meet one guy, a former player from Marcelo Biesla who speaks no good about him.

“They are grateful about his influence on their careers in football.

“He helped me a lot with his advice. Whenever I speak with him I always feel like he wants to help me.”

Bielsa has only won three league titles in his native Argentina and an Olympic gold meal in 2004, but Guardiola says trophies are not a good criteria to measure his brilliance.

“It is important for me to say this about Marcelo because it doesn’t matter how many titles he had in his career,” the Spaniard added.

“We are judged by that – how much success we have, how many titles we have won.

“But that is much less influential than how he has influenced football and his football players.

“That is why, for me, he is the best coach in the world. I am looking forward to seeing him in Lille next season.

“I am pretty sure his influence on their team, their club and their players will be huge – amazing. I am pretty sure of that.”
