Sir Alex Ferguson expects Pep Guardiola to be a success at Manchester City, but has warned the Spaniard he won’t find it easy adjusting to English football.

Guardiola will leave Bayern Munich to take over from Manuel Pellegrini at the Etihad in the summer.

His appointment is a major coup for City, according to legendary former United boss Ferguson, who has never hid his admiration for the two-time Champions League-winning boss.

However, Ferguson insists there is little chance of Guardiola replicating the remarkable success he enjoyed with Barcelona at the Premier League club.

“Man City have made a real coup in getting him but Pep won’t find it easy, English football is not easy,” he said, in an interview with Sky Sports. 

“Every foreign coach that has come to England will tell you that.

“Pep will be a success but I don’t think he’ll ever replicate what he did at Barcelona because that was a high standard – they were the best.

“Pep will improve City but Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham will want to do something and will be desperate to win the league next season as much as City, so for Pep there is not a guarantee they can win the league.”
