The stage is set at the Camp Nou where FC Barcelona are due to host Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League. And according to reports, there will be one guest of honor in the stands: Pep Guardiola.

The former Barcelona manager and captain will be watching his boyhood club take on his title rivals in the Premier League. Manchester City are just a point ahead of Liverpool as the two English clubs are set to battle until the end for the title.

Guardiola was in the Barcelona academy and first team as a player for 17 years. After retiring 5 years later, he came back in 2007 to manage Barcelona B. He spent one successful season with the B team, and then he was promoted to first team manager. He spent four years as Barcelona’s boss, winning countless trophies, including the UEFA Champions League twice. Since, he managed Bayern Munich and now Manchester City.
