Jordi Cruyff: Pep Guardiola should have chosen to take over Man United

Pep Guardiola says he can handle both planning for next season with Manchester City and guiding Bayern towards titles.

Jordi Cruyff would have preferred Pep Guardiola to join Manchester United next season instead of their local rivals Man City.

Guardiola will leave Bayern Munich to take over City this summer, but Cruyff, a former Man United player, said Old Trafford would have been a better choice.

"I would have liked Pep at United - they have more tradition than City," he told Cope.

"It is a good moment to work at City, though, because they have the set-up, the money and the will to create a good team."

Pep Guardiola will take charge at Manchester City this summer.


Prem Forecaster: Leicester now title faves, Newcastle clear of drop zone

Former Arsenal player Sol Campbell believes that Leicester City can win the Premier League title if they keep their nerve.

On the 25th matchday of the 2014-15 Premier League season, Leicester City lost 2-1 at Arsenal, falling deeper into the Premier League basement with just 17 points.

One year later, Leicester City won its 25th game of the season, beating Manchester City 3-1 on Saturday and moving five points clear atop the league table (53 total points).

While the Foxes were already in first place entering the weekend, Saturday's win moved them atop the virtual standings for the first time this season. They are now the title favorite, according to both ESPN's Soccer Power Index (SPI) and the bookmakers.

Let's examine how this wild weekend affected the Premier League's three major races -- the title, top-four and relegation battles -- using SPI's projections (click here for more info on SPI). Plus, we preview two high-stakes matchups this weekend: Arsenal-Leicester City and Manchester City-Tottenham.
