Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane believes Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is the best coach in world football.

Guardiola won 14 trophies during his four year spell as Barcelona manager including three league titles and two Champions League trophies.

Guardiola then took a year-long sabbatical before joining German giants Bayern in 2013, where he won seven pieces of silverware across a three-year period, including three Bundesliga titles.

The 51-year-old has since enjoyed a trophy-laden six-and-a-half-year spell with Man City, winning four Premier League titles, four EFL Cups, one FA Cup and two Community Shields.

“He always proved that he is the best. First with Barcelona, then with [Bayern] Munich, now with Manchester City,” Zidane said.

“That’s my opinion. Some people can think other coaches are better but for me, he is the best.”
