“It’s in terms of weight and so on to manage the heat and the sweat - not so much the colours but the technical aspects.”

Puma chief executive Bjorn Gulden said that the input of the City management team covered several aspects: “Functional fabrics, compression, fit, materials - the coaches who played know everything because they played themselves and they are very careful over the requirements.

“I think Pep is one of those guys who is a perfectionist in what he does and you need to deliver him quality.”

“For all the football guys, including Pep, when we said it was Puma, he was very happy,” said Soriano. The first reaction was to remember Johan Cruyff and Pele, but specifically Cruyff. Puma means an authenticity related to football. The ones, like me, who are already old we understand that very well.”

Gulden met with Guardiola during his visit to Manchester to announce the deal: “If you’re a soccer fanatic and you talk to Pep then you get impressed and he’s so interesting to talk to in the development.
