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.
