City Football Group official on potential Manchester City managerial handover – Depends on Guardiola decision – Sport Witness

Girona manager Míchel is good enough to replace Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, even if he still needs time to develop as a coach.

That’s according to Girona’s sporting director Quique Cárcel, who has backed the manager for a bright future as he leads the Spanish side to unprecedented heights this season.

Girona currently sit top of La Liga after 13 games of the season, with 11 wins one draw and jus one defeat putting them two points clear of Real Madrid and four ahead of Barcelona.

They’ve undoubtedly been the surprise package of European football so far, with a series of impressive performances seeing them establish themselves as title contenders.

There is already talk in Spain about a potential repeat of Leicester’s famous Premier League win in 2016, with Girona having finished tenth and 39 points behind champions Barcelona last season.

The man leading them to these new heights is manager Míchel, a relatively unknown 48-year-old Spanish manager who has previously managed the likes of Rayo Vallecano and Huesca.

He’s quickly establishing himself as a name to keep an eye on, with a claim from one of his players this week that he is in regular contact with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola via the club’s connections as part of the City Football Group.

It appears he’s been using that connection to his advantage and his boss believes there could be a pathway to the Etihad at some point, if he continues as he is.

“(He) has the talent to lead a big club like Manchester City (but) still needs time to get there to this type of benches,” Mundo Deportivo report Cárcel saying.

“City plays football that Míchel, with a smaller club, is being able to do. Although for him to train them, a lot of coordination has to happen, like Pep (Guardiola) making the decision to leave.

“(He’s) happy in the team, with a contract and with the desire to continue making the project great. The pressures in Girona are different from those he may have on a bigger bench.”
