Leeds meet City on Saturday.
"The games against teams who have the capacity to have answers or do the unexpected make the games full of surprises," he said. "When I classify Guardiola's team as magical, I wasn't calling him a magician. What I was trying to say was that in the process, he creates so many surprising attacks. Of course, this is supported by the quality of his players.
"There is a method which stimulates what they do. This is the difficult thing to expect. From the outside it looks as though the managers has done something magical.
"There's a method that unites individuality with what he proposes. This creates football full of surprises. There's nothing nicer for a spectator than to see something they did not expect. To say the opposite is when you know what's going to happen. It creates boredom."
