Manchester City - Barcelona Live!

The FC Barcelona expedition checked in recently at the Lowry Hotel in Manchester, the same base being used currently by Jose Mourinho since moving to the north east after his appointment as new coach of the "Red Devils".

Whilst new Manchester City first team coach Guardiola has opted to live in  a city center apartment with his family, the Portuguese coach has elected to reside in the presidential suite at the 5 star hotel with his wife Matilde and two children continuing to live in London.

Just last week Mournino revealed how miserable he is with his current live in Manchester and the arrival of the Barça squad will only increase media attention at the Lowry, something that the Setubal born coach finds frustrating.

Barcelona face Manchester City in matchday four of the 2016/17 Champions League at the Etihad stadium tomorrow evening (kick off 20:45 CET).
