Josep "Pep" Guardiola i Sala (born 18 January 1971) is a Spanish former footballer who is the current manager of Bundesliga club Bayern Munich. Guardiola played as a defensive midfielder and spent the majority of his career with Barcelona, forming a part of Johan Cruyff's "dream team" that won Barcelona's first European Cup in 1992, and captaining the team from 1997 to 2001. He also played for Brescia and Roma in Italy, Al-Ahli in Qatar, and Dorados de Sinaloa in Mexico while training to be a manager. While playing in Italy, he served a four-month ban for a positive drug test, although he was cleared of wrongdoing twice on appeal in 2009 before the Courts of Justice of the Italian Football Federation and the Federal Anti-Doping Courts of the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI). He was capped 47 times for Spain, winning the Olympic Gold Medal in 1992, and also played friendly matches for Catalonia. A deep-lying playmaker, Guardiola was highly regarded throughout his career for his vision of the game, ball control, technical ability, passing range, and calm composure.
