Pep Guardiola couldn't have asked for a better debut season as a manager - topping La Liga, bagging the Copa del Rey and snatching the Champions League from under Manchester United's nose.
The Spaniard has gone onto success at Bayern Munich and Manchester City, but it was Barcelona and that silverware-ladened first campaign that introduced him to the world. He was selected for the post in the summer of 2008 and amidst the pressure of filling the boots of Frank Rijkaard.
Guardiola, of course, had played for Barcelona himself and made 336 appearances for Blaugrana from La Masia to a European Cup final.
And what attracted the novice manager to the Barcelona bosses in 2008 was his performances in the charge of B team during the 2007-08 campaign.
The 47-year-old needed just one season in the role to impress and graduate to the first-team, winning their Tercera Division group to qualify for the Tercera División play-offs which they dually won to gain promotion.
Of course, while Guardiola deserves great credit, his success in the B team was also greatly dependant on the players at his disposal and 10 years on, he looked to have had quite the mix.
While the likes of Sergio Busquets and Pedro have very familiar career paths, not every player has enjoyed such success since leaving Guardiola's command. Check out where that decorated side can be found now, below.
