Mourinho reveals how he beat Guardiola’s City


Former Chelsea, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Tottenham boss, Jose Mourinho has revealed why he was able to win Manchester City a few times.

Mourinho pinpointed how his success against Pep Guardiola’s City is different when compared to Arsenal’s.

Mourinho dissected the Arsenal goalless draw against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in March.

Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta set his team up in a way that Pep Guardiola’s attacking side failed to find any proper openings.

During his time as the United boss, Mourinho often faced the City team.

Addressing the difference between how he tacked City and how Arteta is doing the same, Mourinho said, according to The Telegraph, “In my time, it was not a magic strategy.

“And I won against Manchester City a few times. But it was not an amazing strategy. It was a defensive game.

“Park the bus, park the double bus. It was a different perspective.”
