IAN LADYMAN: Back at the place where he began his education, Pep Guardiola was happy to make the point that it is far from finished.
Sitting in a familiar seat in the press auditorium at the Nou Camp, the Manchester City coach looked and sounded like a man thoroughly at home. Only the club designer outfit — retailing at more than £1,800 a throw — made him look in any way different from the years he spent here.
Guardiola is one of those lucky men who never seems to age. The quest to broaden the mind continues, though, and it will be on the touchline on Wednesday that he believes he will learn something valuable about the team he started to build in the summer.
