The Spanish tactician takes the reins at the Etihad Stadium this summer and the man who will replace at Bayern Munich believes the Premier League club will follow in the footsteps of Barcelona and the Bundesliga giants, even if they have no Lionel Messi.
"Every manager brings his style, his methodology and Guardiola will do the same," he said of Guardiola who won three Bundesliga titles and two German Cups in his three seasons at the Allianz Arena.
"But by the end Bayern were playing with the same style as Barcelona.
"Different players, but the style is there.
"It will be the same at Manchester City.
"They will play with possession and control of the game.
"Guardiola for this reason is a fantastic manager because he is able to build a really strong identity of his team.
"I think Manchester City signed Guardiola for this reason, to establish a new identity, a new style, a new culture.
