In 2009, Pep Guardiola became the youngest manager ever to win the Champions League or European Cup.

It was a vindication of a big decision. When Barcelona were appointing their new manager, they turned down the great Jose Mourinho, turning instead to the Barça B coach who simply got the club. They knew that Mourinho would win things and that goals would rain… but it wasn't quite going to be in the way that they knew.

Mourinho was reportedly fuming, while one of Guardiola's first decisions was to oust the likes of Ronaldinho and Deco, while asking his bosses to send one of his players to the Olympics. It was a bold start – and the season ended in Rome in a Champions League final.

It could hardly have gone better. That trophy was one of a treble that season – he ended the calendar year with six.
