In a friendly match against Spain in November 1999, the then Argentine coach Bielsa made a game plan. His attention to detail can be said to be as strict as it is. His team will adopt a man-to-man tactic to contain key players in the Spanish team. The head coach, born in Rosario, has already figured out how to deal with this game in his mind, but what he didn't expect is that one of the goals he takes care of in the opponent's line will be in 20 years. Later he still followed him tirelessly.
Bielsa ordered the midfielder Killi Gonzalez to keep his eyes on a Spanish midfielder, no matter where he went on the court-the victim's name was Pep Guardiola. When Kiley Gonzalez scored the first goal for the Argentine team, he was only a foot away from Guardiola. Mauricio Pochettino scored the second goal in this 2-0 victory. Guardiola realized then that the coach he faced today was completely different from the others.
贝尔萨（Bielsa）下令中场球员基利·冈萨雷斯（Killi Gonzalez）始终盯着西班牙中场球员，无论他在场上去哪儿，受害者的名字叫瓜迪奥拉（Pep Guardiola）。当基利·冈萨雷斯（Kiley Gonzalez）为阿根廷队攻入第一球时，他距离瓜迪奥拉（Guardiola）只有一英尺远。毛里西奥·波切蒂诺（Mauricio Pochettino）在这场2-0胜利中攻入了第二个进球。瓜迪奥拉那时意识到他今天面对的教练与其他教练完全不同。
That was the first "conversation" between Guardiola and Bielsa in top football. It was also the first contact between a famous coach and a player who was enthusiastic about tactics. After Guardiola became the coach , That also became the first seed of this friendship between the two.
Guardiola began to use Bielsa as a reference point. After sharing an Argentine barbecue lunch, Guardiola's interest in Bielsa changed from "interest" to "adoration". This personal relationship has also continued until the two coaches Rosario, Barcelona, Athletic Bilbao, Manchester City and Leeds United in all periods.
In England in the past three years, the relationship between the two is stronger than ever. They have met many times to reminisce, dine together, and enjoy each other's company. After successfully defending the Premier League champion in 2019, Guardiola drove to Leeds Lian, because his mentor invited him to share lunch there.
Recently, Guardiola invited Bielsa back. This summer, when Leeds United won the Championship and realized his dream of returning to the Premier League, Guardiola called the Argentine. The achievement of leading the upgrade of Leeds United must be celebrated, so Guardiola invited the "madman" Bielsa to a restaurant where he owns some shares in Manchester. Among the top private rooms of this restaurant, the two enjoyed the most on the menu. Good food.
The close relationship between the two began in 2006, when Guardiola decided to hang up his boots and already wanted to become a head coach, but he wanted to learn as much as possible before he could take action. Therefore, he went to Buenos Aires with his friend and Spanish film director David Trueva.
Guardiola wants to study the coaching philosophy of the three coaches. The first is the former Barcelona coach Menotti. When he coached the Argentina national team, it was the golden age of Diego Maradona; the second was the former Mexico and Costa Rica coach La Volpe, who created The very famous "Lavolpe offensive tactics" (simply put, it is the organizational tactics of the back midfielder retreat, the premise of the bilateral guard, and the moderate adduction of the bilateral forward); the third place is Bielsa.
"If you want to learn about football, then go and talk to Bielsa." Batistuta, the "God of War" who played with Guardiola in Rome, once told him. Many other people also mentioned Bielsa, so it is impossible for Guardiola to ignore the name.
By the end of that meeting, their feelings had exploded. When the Spaniard drove from his hotel in Buenos Aires to Bielsa’s home on the outskirts of Rosario, the original friendly barbecue lunch turned into an 11-hour long Football debate.
Guardiola was completely conquered, and the Catalans found an infinite source of knowledge in Bielsa. Any questions he raised about football, Bielsa already had a corresponding theory in his mind; and Bielsa also found a young coach obsessed with football, just like him back then.
The meeting produced a variety of interesting scenes. The two shared football tactics on their computers. The director Trueva was used as a stubborn center. Around him were the living room chairs, which were used as stadiums. Guardiola and Bielsa are obsessed with them, and they are constantly shifting through running and formation.

Trueva later admitted that he could not fail to be surprised by the extensive analysis of football tactics conducted by Guardiola and Bielsa, and he revealed some of their discussions. "You know all the rubbish in the name of football, and you know how dishonest the people in this circle are, why are you still eager to coach? Do you like this blood so much?" Bielsa asked.
"I need this blood!" Guardiola replied.
Matthias Manner, who once worked as an analyst for the Argentine national team and later worked under him when Bielsa coached the Chilean national team, also met with Guardiola during his trip to Argentina. He said that the Catalan called him shortly after meeting with Bielsa, "I just talked to the person who knows football best in the world." Guardiola said.
In 2008, two years after that time to study in Argentina, Guardiola was appointed as the coach of Barcelona, and everyone after that has been familiar. In 2011, when Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona was already the best team in the world, Bielsa also landed in La Liga to coach Athletic Bilbao. The two coaches worked together in the Spanish League for a season. Between them The relationship continues to strengthen and keep in touch frequently.
在那段时间到阿根廷学习的两年后的2008年，瓜迪奥拉被任命为巴塞罗那的教练，此后的每个人都非常亚博最新消息熟悉。 2011年，瓜迪奥拉（Pep Guardiola）的巴塞罗那队已经成为世界上最好的球队，而贝尔萨（Bielsa）也登陆西甲，执教毕尔巴鄂竞技。两位教练在西班牙联赛中合作了一个赛季。他们之间的关系不断加强，并经常保持联系。
Guardiola's last game as Barcelona's coach was the 2012 Copa del Rey final against Athletic Bilbao, where Barcelona won 3-0. A few days after that final, the two coaches met for the last time in Spain. Bielsa showed Guardiola all the research he had done for that game. The amount of information even shocked Guardiola. .
"You know my team better than me." He said to his mentor.
Finally, these two "ball idiots" returned to the same league. The special "blood relationship" between Guardiola and Bielsa in football can be seen in the way they treat the game, and there are many similarities. "When facing a football game, I don't want any other methods besides being the protagonist and eager to hold the ball." Guardiola said in the early days of coaching Barcelona, "I am definitely an offensive football fanatic. Fans. I only feel at ease when I see the ball in the opponent's half."
"Football is a question of attitude," Bielsa said. "I learned the value of hard work and hard work from sports. My team has always been the protagonist and I never think about waiting."
In Guardiola’s office in Manchester City’s youth training camp, there is a handwritten inscription on the wall, written by Gua Shuai himself. It quotes a press conference when Bielsa was the head coach of Marseille. idea.
"The moments of progress in my life are closely related to failure; the moments of regression in my life are closely related to success."
"As a person, success destroys us. It relaxes us and plays tricks on us. It makes us worse and makes us more conceited. Failure is the opposite thing. It shapes us and makes us more determined. To bring us closer to our beliefs and make us clearer."
"When I participated in the amateur league, I felt very happy; when I became more mature in my favorite job, I felt very happy. I am concerned about football, the game, the corner kick, the narrow space, the sideline of the stadium , And a deep love for football itself. I despise everything else."
"With all due respect, the joy of winning can only last for 5 minutes. What is left is a huge gap and an indescribable sense of loneliness. Don't let failure affect your self-esteem. When you win, remember to praise Compliments and compliments are deceptive, because they inflate our arrogance and deform us. When you lose, the opposite is true. What really matters is the valuable resources that you can use."
It is conceivable that tonight's game at Elland Road Stadium must be a fierce tactical duel, because this is the way the two coaches treat the game.
可以想象，今晚在Elland Road Stadium的比赛必须是激烈的战术决斗，因为这是两位教练对待比赛的方式。
"When I'm not working, I feel that my opponents are studying my team. Sometimes when my opponents are all asleep, I'm still analyzing the game at 10 or 11 in the evening. I feel that I have won. 1-0." Guardiola said this before. Now, he must work harder to frustrate the man who affected his life through one-on-one marking and talking for 11 hours in the first meeting.
