Josep Guardiola

He applied the same style that he had learned in his playing days at the Club, based on attack, possession and combination plays. And it worked to perfection.

In his first season, Guardiola won all three major titles. 2009 was the year that Barça won an amazing six trophies. That success continued over the next two seasons, meaning that Barça had won 10 of the 13 competitions it was involved in.

Guardiola set new standards for world football. But his Barça team was not just about what it did on the field, for it also made other important contributions to society.
