In the previous press conference to the party of this Friday between City and United, Mourinho was asked on his relation with Guardiola along the years. The technician, of unexpected form, answered elogiando to the Barça of Pep. Good gesture of the luso

It seems that José Mourinho has begun the season 2017-2018 in sound of peace. Perhaps because it wants to emulate the path of Sir Alex Ferguson in the United. Perhaps because it goes settling the head and prefers not being more leading in the press conferences. But to the luso sees him more reflexive that never.

Mourinho has appeared in press conference this Thursday hours before the party that will measure to the Manchester United against the Manchester City, elogiando of unexpected form to Pep Guardiola, with which kept a taut relation while he trained to the Madrid and the Catalan to the Barça.

"He was trainer of the Barça, I of the Madrid, went a moment very specific for the two teams. One was a group 'top' of Europe, whereas the another a giant in low hours. It was a fight between two clubs, but the distance between us was enormous", has recognised. 

The trainer of the United declared that in any moment expected that the Premier was a fight between him and Guardiola: "By the type of competition that is the Premier, was entirely sure that this would not be a Guardiola against Mourinho". Finally, also rememoró his relation when they coincided in the Barça, with Pep like player and he like member of the technical body: "we Work together during three years and had a good relation. We laugh us the triumphs and cry defeats".

The Champions expects them

It is clear that the two 'Manchesters' will be candidates to compete by the Champions. At least, this would have to demand them his fans after seeing the millionaire investments that are making summer after summer. Pep does not have margin of error after a first disappointing course. 'Mou', something more than credit.
