An onlooker told The Sun at the time: “Dele and Maria didn’t seem to have a care in the world.

“They didn’t mind who saw them as they smooched in front of the DJ booth.

“It was packed with hundreds of revellers watching on. All the tables had been booked and were completely full.

How many children does Pep Guardiola have?

The couple met in a shop and dated for 20 years before marrying in 2014 in Matadepera, after their children were born.

The Sun reported in 2019 that Cristina returned to Spain to take care of her fashion company, taking one of their children, while the other two remained in England with Pep.

Cristina has been commuting back to work from Manchester after the former Bayern Munich gaffer replaced Manuel Pellegrini in 2016.

“Like her husband, Cristina has a passion for fashion, poetry and photography,” reports the Mirror.

“Cristina Serra Guardiola is known as a style icon back in her homeland — although she shies away from the limelight and rarely gives interview,” it adds.

Maria often posts about her famous dad, and on his birthday in 2024, she posted a sweet Instagram post which read: “Happy birthday @pepteam. So thankful, I couldn’t have been more lucky. Forever winning at life because of my family.”

Meanwhile, in 2018, Pep opened up for the first time about his wife and daughters being caught up in the horrific Ariana Grande concert bombing in Manchester, insisting that he was a Mancunian for life.

Salman Abedi killed 22 men, women and children when he blew himself up in a suicide bomb attack at the end of an Ariana Grande concert in May 2017.

The Man City boss’ wife and two daughters were at the arena and he was left with several agonising minutes of being unable to make contact.

Fortunately, Guardiola’s family were safe but he paid tribute to those who were not as lucky.

He told BBC 5 Live: “When the attack happened, I was at home with my son, and my wife and daughters were there – they were at the arena.

“She called me but the line broke immediately. She told me ‘something happened and we are running but I don’t know what happened’ and the line broke.


“We tried to call her again and it didn’t work – we went to the arena and after five or six minutes she rang again and said: ‘We are out, we’re coming back home.’

“At the end we were lucky. Many people suffered, and we were lucky. Life is like this. We were in a better position than many unfortunate ones.”
