Samuel Eto'o: I Prefer Mourinho's Style To Guardiola's by obembet(f): 8:21am On Jan 12
It was the coaching battle of the 2010s, the definitive clash between attack and defence, yet Samuel Eto'o, having won the Champions League under both coaches, has confirmed he prefers Jose Mourinho's style to that of Pep Guardiola.

Eto'o was a huge success at Barcelona after arriving from Real Mallorca via Real Madrid, and he is simply a club legend, after winning two Champions League trophies with Los Cules.

He was then, though, unceremoniously dumped by Guardiola as part of a transfer deal which took Zlatan Ibrahimovic from Inter to Barcelona, yet he would then win the Champions League to the Milanese club under Mourinho's conservative stewardship.

"I am more friends with Jose Mourinho's style," Eto'o explained in an interview with SPORTbible.

"It's a question of style, they each have their own way, I prefer Jose Mourinho.

"However, Pep is a top top coach, so I don't think you can make a decision, but I can tell you that there is no other coach, no other manager, who will get to motivate his players as much as Jose Mourinho does, for me the treble with Jose is the special one."

It's interesting that Eto'o feels this way, especially at a time when a lot of young coaches are coming through, achieving success and actually surpassing Mourinho's current level.

"Now there are more coaches with their own style," Eto'o added.

"Yet, in terms of motivating and getting the most out of their players, that is Jose Mourinho."

To me, I think Pep a failure because he can't give a team what they need. he only give them what they already have. Mourinho will give a team what they need and not what they have. that only make Jose Mourinho the best choice, Even Reneiry is better than Guardiola because he took underdogs 'Lecester city from nowhere to win a trophy for them.

You can clearly see that etoo is speaking out of anger at pep. Clearly, etoo 2 best season ever was 1 with frank Rijkaard and his 6 trophies with Pep. Infact, that 2009 season with pep might go down as the best ever team in the History of club football (discussions for another day) etoo under mourinho was a Right back/RWB and he definitely wasn't at his best at inter

If Pep can win League with lower team... Like Watford, Sevilla or Napoli, I will agree with u

thats his opinion even if we all know that the opinion is clouded by sentiments because of his personal beef with pep especially after pep dumped him out of barca team after playing a key role in barca UCL Victory..
Eto deserved more from pep and pep got it all wrong by swapping him with zlatan that failed in barca and dt was one of pep mistake in his barca days..
pep n eto once had disagreement because I remembered a season that la liga was already won with points and barca still had UCL engagements to attend to, pep started resting Eto in league games BT Eto wasnt happy because he was competing with forlan for the pichichi award dt forlan went ahead and won..
Eto was angry n blasted pep who said Eto is selfish for placing himself first before the team and went ahead to dump him the following season for a stubborn zlatan..
Eto won countless trophies with pep playing a key role than he did with mou, and besides milito was the key player for inter while Eto was his supporting cast..

u said my mind bro....Eto was the main striker in barca team dt won all trophies more than that mourinho team that won few trophies and he played as a supporting cast to milito who was the the key man..
Eto is simply allowing old beef to cloud his opinion..

pls don start this lame argument...which mourinho are talking about?? the same mourinho dt couldn't win a UCL with his star studded madrid n won just a league in 3 seasons against pep or the same mourinho dt flopped badly in his return to Chelsea and his stint with man.u??
even if you hate pep, try n be constructive with ur criticism...pep hardly goes a season without a trophy and DTS commendable because he also knows how to build team that plays beautiful football which isnt easy, or do you think a mourinho would build a machine in ethihad and dominate England like pep did from the start of his city job??
you are saying ranieri is better than pep because he won EPL wit smaller team forgetting that mou and pep once moved to the city of manchester at the same time, both coaches had money and resources, pep built a ruthless team n won "all" trophies in england in his first 2 seasons but we all know how it ended with mourinho on the other side..
pls you should have some respect on pep because even if he isnt the best, he is more tactical than mourinho...
FACT- mourinho have lost to pep more than any other manager he had faced....means pep Is doing something right

Since Eto left Barca he has neva spoken anything gud abt d club, probably due to d way he was offloaded by Pep. I dnt blame him though else who wuld hv preferred a Mourinho's borin style to dat of an exciting nd captivating style being used by Pep?
We need to tank Klopp nd Pep for making football a joy to watch again. Not 4getn Hans-Dieter Flick of Bayern nd Erik Ten Hag of Ajax. These guys re doin a great job.

That's his opinion.
He had been walking alone through out his career because both coaches walk alone.

Pep as well as Morinho are always blessed with good players and good bank account...so we can only argue who is better if they are both given average teams ..and then we can see what comes of it

Park the bus style....Well we all know Guadiola sent Eto'o away from Barcelona to Inter Milan where he won trophy with Mourinho....So the reason for his opinion is well justified....

But Pep still remains one of the best coaches out there in history....

You know the vibes bro. Not a football fanatic but the Couple times I watched Liverpool’s matches I saw something bigger than a team - a mastermind group, a brotherhood, positive energy all around. such a team is unstoppable I swear.
