That season he was slightly above level playing field to his rivals.
His last 2 leagues he has had only one rival Real Madrid. Bundesliga had no rivals for Pep.
The one season he had few rivals and close in terms of quality of players, he couldn’t do well.
And then he gave his squad an expensive makeover and yet again he has talents other managers could dream of.
AGAIN, I am not saying Pep is a shit manager or something.
All I am saying is that he is dependent on quality players.
I don’t think it is fair to consider him the best manager because I find it unfair on his rival manager as they always have to compete against a giant per say.
It’s a David versus Goliath; and we are praising Goliath for walking gracefully.
Only one manager had the means to compete with him and that was Mourinho and we all know he is a fraud.
And even he won La Liga ahead of Pep once.
