Manchester Derby: Why I won’t criticize Mourinho’s defensive tactics – Guardiola




Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said he will never criticize the playing style of his Manchester United counterpart, Jose Mourinho, because “there are different ways to enjoy football”.

Guardiola faces his arch rival in a keenly awaited Derby at Old Trafford and claims he and Mourinho are “twins”, because they love to win trophies.

“Definitely,” he said. “In that, we are twins.

“He wants to win trophies, I want to win trophies. I think Antonio Conte is the same as well, and Jurgen and Mauricio. In all the leagues around the world, the managers are the same.”

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach also spoke on why he never condemns pragmatic tactics.

“I never criticise my colleagues for the way they play. I never did in the past, I will never do it.

“Football is magnificent for that, because every manager plays in the way they play. There are different ways to enjoy football.

“Our relationship is correct, it’s friendly. We haven’t bumped into each other here though, but it’s correct,” he said.
