The two play very similar, yet not the same. In addition to the Brazilian national team, the coach of the Brazilian club Fluminense, Fernando Dinis himself said that Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola does not play ‘positional’ football as his team does.
But when it comes to possession football or the fight for possession, Guardiola and Dinis are so similar in technique that Dinis has been nicknamed ‘Brazil’s Guardiola!’

Last season at Manchester City saw the end of a wait for Guardiola. Man City is able to play in the Club World Cup because the wait is over. Waiting name – Champions League.
Guardiola won the Champions League twice in the first three years of his coaching career, starting with Barcelona in 2009, before tasting European excellence again in nine years at Bayern Munich and Manchester City. Last season that wait ended with Inter defeating Milan in the final.
Guardiola has also completed a cycle. Man City won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and has already confirmed the English superiority. After the Champions League, they have won the European Super Cup at the beginning of this season. Now it’s time to conquer the world.
If Fluminense can be beaten today, Guardiola will be victorious. Where standing in front of him is another ‘Brazilian Guardiola!’
