Massague said that the former Blaugrana coach spent hours talking to him and was interested in many topics, beyond medicine. He became friends with not only the doctor himself but also many of his employees and hospital staff. Pep Guardiola, current coach of Bayern Munich, spent a year living in New York. He decided to take refuge in the city after a long, intense and successful period in charge of Barcelona. For him it was the best way to disconnect from the current club, keep a low profile, and avoid the certain comparisons that would be made between him and the new coach. Pep was accompanied by his family and led a normal life, oblivious to the all the pressure that he suffered in Barcelona. He has now made some things known which he did during his stay in the city. Upd. at 19:31 CET 19/01/2015last_img
