Pep Guardiola says his success as a manager is thanks to the education he received under the late Johan Cruyff at Barcelona. The Manchester City boss has established himself as one of footballs great coaches after winning 21 trophies during his time in charge at the Nou Camp and with Bayern Munich.Guardiola initially played for Barca and was part of their European Cup-winning side which beat Sampdoria 1-0 at Wembley in 1992, with Cruyff managing the team. The 45-year-old believes the lessons he learnt in that period from the Dutchman - who died from lung cancer in March - laid the foundations for his own progress in the dug-out.Speaking at the London launch of the autobiography Johan Cruyff: My Turn, Guardiola said: I was a lucky guy, I coached City, Bayern and Barca because I met him. Guardiola later led Barcelona to two Champions League titles, including the 2011 version against Manchester United I thought I knew about football but when I met him, a whole new world opened in front of me.He taught us - not only me, but a generation of players - to understand the game, to understand why you took that decision.

He did it the hard way, getting hit by a pitch from Justin Grimm with one out and the bases loaded to force in the winning run in the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 win over the Chicago Cubs. "I knew Grimm threw hard," Garcia said. "I just tried to put the ball in play anyway I can." Jhonny Peralta led off the 12th with a single for his third hit. Grimm (1-2) retired Matt Holliday on a popup, but walks to Allen Craig and Yadier Molina loaded the bases for Garcia. Garcia had a 1-2 count when he was plunked by Grimm. "I saw the pitch out of his hand and knew it was in," Garcia said. "When it got close to the plate I saw it had a chance to hit me. Ill take that one 100 per cent of the time." Seth Maness (1-2) tossed a scoreless 12th for the win. Both teams used seven pitchers. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said he had not planned to use Maness, who had pitched the last three games. "We were planning on staying away from him if possible, but it turned out we needed him," Matheny said. Trailing 3-2 going into the ninth, Chicago rallied to tie it off closer Trevor Rosenthal on Emilio Bonifacios RBI single with two outs. The blown save was the first for Rosenthal in 11 opportunities. "Thats tough, and you could feel it,," Matheny said.dddddddddddd "But they just put their head down and kept playing. That would have been a tough one to lose." Matt Adams and Matt Carpenter also drove in runs for the Cardinals. Luis Valbuena hit a two-run homer off Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright as part of a three-hit night. "The guys ended up fighting, doing the best they could," Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. "We just fell a little short." The Cardinals took a 3-2 lead in the sixth after Peter Bourjos led off with a bunt single against Carlos Villanueva. Bourjos went to second on a grounder, stole third on ball four pitch to pinch-hitter Jon Jay and scored on Carpenters grounder. Peralta added an RBI single. Cubs starter Jake Arrieta went four innings, allowing one run on four hits and five walks. But he helped himself when he led off the third with a single and scored on Valbuenas homer. St. Louis got one of those runs back in the bottom of the third on a two-out, RBI infield single by Adams. NOTES: The Cubs are 3-15 in games decided by two runs or less. ...
