PERE GUARDIOLA key to Striker's future

THE younger brother of Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola will play a large part in where Luis Suarez plays his football next season, WRITES PETE JENSON.

Not dissimilar in appearance to the former Barcelona coach, Pere has looked after Suarez since his Ajax days.

From Barcelona, where his Media Base Sports company is based, he also manages, among others, Andres Iniesta, Thiago Alcantara and young Arsenal midfielder Jon Miquel Toral.

A former Nike executive of 12 years, he worked alongside current Barcelona president Sandro Rosell.

Many Barcelona supporters believe that had his brother Pep not been Barcelona coach at the time, Suarez may well have gone to the Camp Nou. (© Independent News Service)
