Former Barcelona marketing chief Esteve Calzada isn’t surprised Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola has agreed to join Manchester City

Calzada, who was chief commercial officer at the Nou Camp between 2002 and 2007, says Guardiola’s decision to accept the Manchester City job will only enhance a league which has become the dominant financial power in Europe.

“Coming to the Premier League is an aspiration for any person working in football – players, managers, executives. For some people it is like fulfilling a dream. Guardiola going to Manchester City can only enhance the Premier League,” he said.
