A Blaugrana legend has questioned the Spaniard's legacy at Camp Nou, insisting Frank Rijkaard was the man who assembled the star-studded 2008 squad
Hristo Stoichkov has expressed his belief that Pep Guardiola's "work was easy" at Barcelona, with the team already complete when he was handed the managerial reins.
