Cape Town - Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak is expecting incoming manager Pep Guardiola to transform the Sky Blues into one of Europe's elite clubs.

Guardiola has enjoyed a hugely successful career to date, having won 21 trophies in Germany and Spain during stints with Bayern and Barcelona, including two Champions League crowns.

Khaldoon believes Guardiola is a born winner and is expecting him to continue in a similar vein at the helm of Manchester City.

"I am absolutely excited about Pep joining our team. I consider Pep to be one of the best, if not the best, manager today in football," he told CityTV. "We are getting a manager that epitomises, in my view, passion and commitment.

"He's a winner, he is a proven winner. He has won professionally in every team he has coached. His record at Bayern Munich and Barcelona I think speaks for itself.

"The trophies... he has won every single club competition out there, from Champions League to La Liga, the Bundesliga, to the respective cups in both leagues he has played.

"We are getting a proven winner, a passionate man, someone I think will be an incredible asset to Manchester City and I have no doubt that he will transform our team to a whole new level," he concluded.
