Barcelona starlet Martin Montoya said Pep Guardiola is the most important coach he has worked with so far in his career.

The right-back was handed his first team debut by the 41-year-old in February last year, and the departing coach has played a key role in Montoya’s promotion to the first team ahead of the 2012-13 campaign.

“Guardiola has been the most important coach for me,” Montoya told Marca.

“He gave me the chance and he was the one who decided that I would be part of the first team next season.

“I’m very happy to have been promoted. It makes me feel proud. I have played here for 12 years now, and I have never wanted to leave. Barca are the team of my dreams.

“Training with the first team means working at a high rhythm, and always giving everything. You learn a lot in a short period of time.”

The 21-year-old Montoya played the full 90 minutes of his side’s 3-0 Copa del Rey final victory over Athletic Bilbao last month.
