"So he asked his pal to be manager at City and his pal said yes. That's what his greatest achievement comes down to?"

Txiki is a Pep's friend and that's why Txiki is in Man City.

And Txiki was a "sport director" in Barça just because Txiki was a guy hit it off Barça fans.

And that's because Txiki as a player was typical guy very discreet, catalan speaker without being catalan (if you emigrate to Catalonia and you speak catalan here people will want a child of yours), and all this rol fit the catalan philosophy, wich is very "goodist" and with a lot of "to feel morally superior" rol.

Then a guy Txiki, very discreet, formal and zero controversial was the perfect guy.

But he didn't decide anything in Barça 2008/12.

He just was a doll.

Txiki is not a guy who knows a lot discovers a lot bla bla.

Txiki is just a Pep's friend, and Estiarte, and Lillo...

I've always enjoyed the fact that Pep is so good he makes hiring him as Barca A manager the most obvious and easy decision that anyone would have done and not one of the bravest and boldest managerial decisions in modern football.

It’s a great point that. Yes appointing Pep at City was a no brainier but to appoint him at Barca was an incredibly brave move for his career personally. Shows the strength in his convictions.
