Has Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola ever won the Champions League?
There is very little left in football that Pep Guardiola hasnt won. As a player, he won all of the domestic honours that it is possible to win with Barcelona, plus three trophies in European competition. At international level, his playing days had come to an end just a few years before Spains golden age and World Cup-winning heroics but by that time, he was reaping successes year in, year out elsewhere as a coach.
