Reason Why Man City boss Pep Guardiola makes Michael Jordan admission ahead of Premier League title run-in

Man City boss Pep Guardiola makes Michael Jordan admission ahead of Premier League title run-in

In an intriguing admission, Pep Guardiola mentioned Michael Jordan as one of his favorite athletes.

Manchester City will visit Fulham on Saturday to continue their Premier League campaign.

Before the Gunners’ match at Manchester United on Sunday, the Blues would move up to the top of the league with a win at Craven Cottage, surpassing Arsenal.

Prior to taking on Marco Silva’s team, Guardiola was questioned about his career inspirations, including NBA legend Michael Jordan.

The 53-year-old said, “I would wake up at 3 or 4am at Barcelona while my wife was sleeping and I was watching the TV, because I had the feeling that I would never see again,” in response to the question of why he was an inspiration.

Along with tennis greats Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, and Novak Djokovic, the Spaniard also brought up Tiger Woods.

“A single individual with this much charisma, this level of skill, and competition to win multiple championships. These athletes, like [Rafael] Nadal, [Roger] Federer, [Novak] Djokovic, or Tiger Woods, for instance, all have this one package,” he continued.

“I don’t want to miss it [sporting legends in action], because you never know when you’ll get to see it again. I attend Tiger Woods’ matches, for example, and I never miss a shot over the course of 18 or 4 days because I don’t think I’ll see it again.”

During his legendary tenure with the Chicago Bulls, Jordan won an astounding six NBA championships.

Before switching to baseball, he won three titles with the Bulls. Before ending his illustrious career, he won three more basketball titles after making a comeback.

In the Premier League, Guardiola has dominated like Michael Jordan would have, and he is hoping to win four titles in a row this year.

After displaying heroics as a manager since his arrival, he is now vying for his sixth league title in England.
