Speaking ahead of Sunday’s Community Shield against Chelsea, Guardiola heaped praises on Sarri.

“First of all, I’m happy that a manager of that level is in the Premier League. I’m going to learn a lot to see him every weekend,” Guardiola said at Friday press conference.

“We are going to improve a lot because of his ideas here in England. I saw three games [of Chelsea] in pre-season and he got it. He did it – the team in a short time plays like he wants.

“Of course, he needs more time to work everything but the ideas are already there, so I think it’ll be a good game [on Sunday].
