Real Madrid Vs. Barcelona, 2011 UEFA Champions League: Pep Guardiola Takes Swipe At Mourinho In Press Conference

Although we're getting ready to kick off in the other Champions League semifinal, in which Schalke 04 host Manchester United, Real Madrid vs. Barcelona is where the real action is at. Pep Guardiola is holding a press conference ahead of tomorrow's match, and things are getting catty.

Guardiola: "Mourinho is the coach with more titles and prestige. On the field I try to learn a lot from him. Off it, not much."less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply


Harsh words from the normally deserved Barcelona manager. Guardiola and Jose Mourinho are more or less polar opposites away from the game itself, with Mourinho's abrasive personality courting controversy while Guardiola's humilty and respectful demeanour have won him plenty of plaudits. Although it's hardly a surprise that Guardiola is no fan of the way 'The Special One' conducts himself, this is the first time he's been so blatant in his criticism of the Real Madrid manager.
