MANCHESTER. – He is the football manager who has broken multiple records on the pitch – and has one more in his sights.
With the second half of the Premier League season underway, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, 53, is gunning for a fourth title in a row, which will further cement his status as one of the league’s all-time greats.
Pep has amassed an impressive fortune – he is reportedly worth £100 million and is paid £19.7 million by the Blues every year.
Now also the subject of new BBC doc Pep Guardiola: Chasing Perfection, we look into the manager’s glamorous life away from the pitch with wife Cristina and their three children.
Despite having driven a range of enviable motors, Pep is renowned for not being the world’s greatest driver.
Last year, we reported that he has damaged cars collectively worth £460,000 since joining Man City in February 2016.
They included a £200,000 silver Bentley, GTX700, a £150,000 Range Rover, an £80,000 black Mercedes GLE and a £30,000 Mini Cooper.
After winning the treble – the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and FA Cup – in 2023, Pep celebrated with a trip to Egypt with Cristina and their children Maria, 23; Marius, 21; and Valentina, 16.
They spent two days in Cairo and six days exploring Aswan and Luxor, where they visited the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid of Giza.
He spent £2.7million on a luxury apartment in City Suites, which was in the “most desirable address” in Salford, next to a wealth of designer shops, high-end restaurants and wine bars.
As part of the deal, Pep had access to an 18-metre indoor spa pool, an exquisite spa and sauna facilities as well as a 24-hour gym. – The Sun
