Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has claimed that rival Jose Mourinho is arguably the best coach in the world, and that Real Madrid have “a great team”.
The Blaugrana tactician was answering questions today regarding his side’s Copa del Rey match on Tuesday evening versus AS Ceuta when he was asked his opinion of los Blancos’ boss, and the team he is creating.
Guardiola remarked: “He is probably the best coach in the world. It is often difficult to decide in these cases who is the best, but his career in several countries is immaculate. Real Madrid have a great team, and I knew that the league this season would be competitive from the very first game. We hope to keep up.”
