Fans have taken to social media to react as Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was spotted coaching Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla ahead of the NBA Finals. The City manager seemed to be enjoying himself, following a season where he led the Cityzens to their fourth consecutive Premier League win.

Pep Guardiola has spoken about his interest in sports like basketball and tennis, learning how big teams and athletes have helped him enhance his tactics (via Daily Mail). He has now been sighted hanging out with Boston Celtics coach Joe Mazzulla, who has led his basketball side to the NBA Finals.

The Celtics are set to face the Dallas Mavericks at the TD Garden, where Mazzulla, now 35 years old, could be one of the youngest coaches to win the Finals. Mazzulla has spoken about Pep Guardiola in the past, telling The Athletic (via Daily Mail):

"That is what the game of basketball is about, to me, and what counterattacking in soccer is about. So I study a lot of Man City. I study Pep a lot. I think he’s the best coach at any level, in any sport. It’s had a huge influence [on me]."

Pep Guardiola led Manchester City to the Premier League title for the fourth time in a row

Pep Guardiola led Manchester City to the Premier League title in the 2023-24 season, notably becoming the first manager to win the trophy four consecutive times. The Spaniard has also won the league title six times in the last seven years.

The Cityzens missed out on the FA Cup, where they were widely expected to beat local neighbors Manchester United. However, it was not to be, as they ended up without a double, losing 2-1 to the Red Devils.

Guardiola is easily one of the best managers in the world, as he has won the UEFA Champions League three times, twice at Barcelona and once with the Cityzens.

There are rumors that he could potentially leave the Etihad Stadium after spending the better part of the last decade at the club but he remains under contract for the moment.
