Tim Sherwood has said that Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is the best manager in world football.

The manager-turned-pundit was on the No Tippy Tappy Football Podcast when he discussed the prospect of the Spaniard managing the England national team.

Tim Sherwood believes that Pep Guardiola would be the ideal appointment for the Three Lions as there is no manager on his level on the planet.

Tim Sherwood calls Pep Guardiola ‘the best in the world’

Branded as ‘amazing’ by Mateo Kovacic, the Catalan boss is the only coach in the history of the game to have won two trebles.

Tactically as well, Guardiola may be the most influential manager not just currently but perhaps of all time.

Now, Tim Sherwood has painted a picture of how England would fare if Pep Guardiola was their head honcho.

“I’ll give you an example. If Pep Guardiola was the manager of England, we would win and we would have already won”, he claimed.

“But he’s the best in the world.”

Pep Guardiola and England would be a scary duo

First and foremost, Tim Sherwood is spot on about naming Pep Guardiola as the best manager in the world.

In terms of silverware, tactical flexibility and style of play, no team in world football comes close to his Manchester City side.

If given the reins to the England job, Pep Guardiola would thrive, given the number of City players already in the national team that are accustomed to his philosophy.

Names like John Stones, Kyle Walker, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish and Kalvin Phillips are all regular members of their nation’s senior squad.

To add to that, a number of Arsenal players are also key cogs of the Three Lions roster and play a similar style of Guardiola’s under Arteta’s guidance.

As a result, despite the short space of time that Pep Guardiola is handed at international level, he would find it easy to implement his tactics and run riot as England boss.
