It seems former Barcelona captain Carlos Puyol is very much supportive of Pep Guardiola taking over at City.

Puyol backs Guardiola to be a success with City 
The Barcelona legend stated that he owes the current Bayern Munich manager a lot when Guardiola was the manager at Barcelona. Guardiola enjoyed remarkable success in his time at the Nou Camp winning around 14 trophies from 2008 to 2012.

The spell included the winning of the Champions league in 2009, when the club was regarded as one of the best teams in club football and in 2011. Puyol was the captain under Guardiola and was regarded as one of the best defenders in the world during that time.

The now retired footballer certainly remembers that four year period under Guardiola with fondness and stated that the club is behind him in his future endeavors with Manchester City, where he would join former Barcelona director Txiki Begiristain.

Puyol has stated everyone here wishes Guardiola all the best and has backed the Spanish manager to be a resounding success at the Etihad.
