Dwight Yorke: This is the difference between Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke has explained the difference between Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho, preferring the former and blasting the latter in shocking style.

The Spaniard is on course to experiencing a record breaking season with Manchester City with them already being crowned champions back in April.

Mourinho meanwhile has come in for plenty of criticism despite his squad experiencing plenty of progression and were only bested by an outstanding rival.

However, it’s not enough for some United fans and there’s huge pressure on the Portuguese manager to deliver the Premier League next season.

Yorke feels that Guardiola is the superior manager and would certainly win the title with the current squad at Old Trafford.

According to the Independent, Dwight said: “I think they would definitely win the league because they are on the front foot, playing attacking football.

“Any manager who has got the riches of players they have playing on the front foot will win more games than they lose. It’s not rocket science.

“Look at the other side and the blue half of Manchester. Don’t tell me those players are far superior than the players we have.

“You look at Anthony Martial, (Marcus) Rashford, (Jesse) Lingard, you look at (Alexis) Sanchez, (Romelu) Lukaku. We have got a very, very strong attacking line-up.

“The difference is they have a manager who thinks positive and wants to play attacking football. On the red side, we have a manager who wants to win 1-0 and play defensive. That is simply the difference.”

It’s a little strange that Dwight Yorke feels that way about Jose and Pep as there’s no real basis to claim one would do a better job than the other.

The truth is that there’s no way of really finding out but if the former Barcelona manager completely overhauled a squad that has won titles in order to reach his standards then it’s curious what he would’ve done with the Red Devils.

Jose Mourinho took over a squad devoid of confidence and one that was a far cry from the one that won the Premier League in Sir Alex Ferguson’s final year in charge.
