Toto Wolff compares himself to Pep Guardiola

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff congratulated champions league winners Manchester City after the side secured a historic treble.

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff has likened his management style to Manchester City manager and the now historic treble winner Pep Guardiola.

After Saturday’s champions league final, a game in which Man City defeated Inter Milan 1-0 to claim their first title capping off an almost perfect season having won the premier league and the FA Cup, Wolff was full of praise for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Wolff took to Twitter to congratulate the Spaniard who has steered his side to the first English treble since 1999 when bitter rivals Manchester United achieved such a feat.

When speaking on the Beyond The Grid podcast, Wolff drew comparisons to the shared philosophy of himself and Pep, stating:

Both men have dominated the competition in their respective sports, instating their own claims as the greatest to ever do it.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has won major trophies all over Europe, managing one of the best sides the world has ever seen during his spell as Barcelona coach between 2008-2012 with a side that featured Lionel Messi.
