Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is a better manager than Manchester City counterpart Pep Guardiola, according to Diego Maradona.
Guardiola led City to the Premier League title last season and has his team flying again this campaign, while Mourinho’s United are struggling, beaten in the derby on Sunday.
However, Maradona feels former Real Madrid, Chelsea and Inter boss Mourinho is the world’s best coach, and believes Guardiola’s style works because of the buying power he’s had backing him throughout his career.
“For me yes, Mou is the best,” he told Marca .
“I would give Pep the merit of taking advantage of the launch that Johan Cruyff gave him.
“I have said on more than one occasion that tiki-taka was not invented by Guardiola. It was ‘Flaco’ Cruyff.
“At the moment Pep is able to choose any player in the world that he wants. That way tiki-taka is easier.”
