Pep Guardiola is the most sought after manager in world football at this moment in time. The Spaniard recently announced he will be leaving Bayern Munich at the end of the season - to be replaced by Carlo Ancelotti - and it is widely expected his next managerial role will be in the Premier League. 

Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and City are all supposedly interested in acquiring the manager when his time in Bavaria comes to an end. 

Having sacked Jose Mourinho, the Stamford Bridge outfit are looking for a new manager in the summer while Louis van Gaal's position at Old Trafford is on a knife edge.

Manuel Pellegrini is dispensable at the Etihad and Arsene Wenger's contract at the Emirates expires at the end of next season. 

But what has made Guardiola such a wanted man?

Well, his trophy haul is pretty impressive. Five league titles, six domestic cups, two Champions Leagues, three Club World Cups and three Super Cups speak for themselves.

But what has brought the former Spain international so much success in just seven years?

The calibre of players at his disposal has definitely been a plus, but his philosophy has also played a huge part. 

Thierry Henry was on Monday Night Football, watching Arsenal's 2-1 win over Manchester City and before the game he spoke about Guardiola's philosophy. 

The 44-year-old believes in something called the 'three Ps', and they stand for 'play, possession and position'.

The most important? Possession. And his sides have constantly been heralded for their pressing style in the final third. Watch the short video of Henry below.
