Pep Guardiola finally reveals why he respects Solskjaer says he beat him more

Celebrated Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has finally revealed the reason why he respects former United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

When asked about his thoughts on Solskjaer’s departure from Man United, Pep Guardiola said: “I wish him all the best.

“It was a pleasure to face him – he beat me more than I wanted but he knows, like I know, that when you are in charge of a team like United, City, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, you have to win.

“I am still sitting here because I won. Otherwise, it would be another person sitting here. Hopefully one day we can see each other again.”

Solskjaer holds one of the most decent records against Guardiola, winning 4 out of 9 games against the derby rivals during his time at United.

This included a stunning league double over the Citizens in the 2019/20 season.
