Guardiola jersey number in Barcelona was nubber 4.Guardiola also played as a player for La Liga side Barcelona before becoming a manager and taking charge of Premier League giants Manchester City. Under the direction of Netherlands manager Cruyff, Guardiola developed into a world class midfielder and has been captain of Barcelona since 1997. However, when it came to his shirt number, Guardiola chose the number 4 jersey worn by one of his most admired Barca predecessors, Ronald Koeman.
During his time at Barcelona, Guardiola worked his way up to become a legend in the club’s history and added to the glory of the number 4 shirt. In the years that followed, many of Barelona’s trainning camp players have made it their dream to wear the number 4 shirt. To date, however, only six players have worn the number 4 shirt at FC Barcelona. The current owner of this jersey is Barcelona player Ronald Araujo.
After retiring from football in 2006, Guardiola became a football coach, as he put it, and his first club was Barcelona, his old home as a player. Little did anyone know that Guardiola, who only officially became Barcelona’s first team manager in 2008, would lead the team to win the champion of UEFA Champions League in just one year, becoming the first team to win six consecutive champions in a year in the history of world football.
