Every professional footballer on the planet wants to train under Pep Guardiola (apart from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Yaya Toure). His approach to playing the game has revolutionized football and brought unmitigated success to Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City. Now, thanks to Amazon Prime Original docuseries “All or Nothing: Manchester City”, we get a behind-the-scenes look at Guardiola and total access to City’s stable of world-class footballers.
Just imagine a brief exchange of tactical dialogue between Guardiola and Vincent Kompany or David Silva — your own football IQ will probably increase tenfold just by osmosis.
The added caveat is that Amazon’s filming of the series took place last season, when City set the Premier League record for most points (100), most wins (32), most goals (106), most consecutive wins (18) and most points ahead of second (19). Yes, we’re getting an inside look at the most dominate team display in the history of English football. That qualifies as can’t-miss television.
The series will feature eight episodes and all will be released for binging pleasure on Friday, August 17.
