Man City boss Guardiola: Gallardo deserved FIFA nomination

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is full of praise for Marcelo Gallardo.

The River Plate coach is being linked with Ernesto Valverde's job at Barcelona.

And Pep told TNT: "What Gallardo has done with River is incredible, at the level of results, giving them consistency every year despite the fact that players leave and he continues to be ... there are things that I cannot explain much, we are nominated as three coaches for the best of the year and he is not there.

"It seems that there is only Europe, I do not understand how he is not nominated and not only for a year also for what he has done, I hope one day I can face one of his teams, it would be very nice."
