He was the best-dressed and most handsome coach in Germany the last three years. But then this might not be such an achievement when we think of coaches like Peter Stoeger at FC Cologne or Dieter Hecking at VFL Wolfsburg. Their look does not telegraph fashion but rather reminds of accountants at the local Sparkasse. While Bayern Munich had a contract with Giorgio Armani, Pep Guardiola was known to wear DSquared2 whenever a special occasion arrived.
Close to the house’s marketing and communications director Valentina Zucchetti, Guardiola always turns to the fashionable twins when it counts. Considering he is entering not only a football contest with his local rival Jose Mourinho in Manchester but also a fashion competition as the Special One is known to be just as handsome and well dressed, Pep started out strong by giving his first press conference as Man City coach in a three-piece DSquared2 suit in grey, his preferred color. Even if England’s Euro squad played embarrassing football during the Euro, the Premiership will be the league to watch next season, if only to see what Pep is wearing on the sideline.
