Former Barcelona President Joan Laporta had good things to say about Pep Guardiola and the Manchester City project. He has recently stated that the fans of the club should be ‘very excited’ as there are great plans for the summer.

“If City back him as he deserves, he’ll succeed. He is an optimist, a winner and he is brave. He won’t hide,” said Laporta when talking about Pep.

Guardiola visited his former boss Laporta in Barcelona recently, and here is what the ex-Barcelona president had to say:

“Pep looked very well. He was here for a few days, so we met up and he was very upbeat. He’s happy at City, optimistic he can build something.

“And the way they plan to go about strengthening the team, I think they’re going to be extremely strong. The fans will be very excited.”

He later stated that he does not know specifically what Pep is doing to the squad this summer, but he is confident that him and Txiki Begiristain will build a fantastic squad. Yay!
