lolz....u aint fair on pep...u allow him coach n fail at d small club first before u judge him...mou won ucl with inter and Porto and those two clubs were on thier prime when he won it and not underdogs or lower teams like ranieri used..

Inter was not the best European team in 2010, Barcelona was.

Porto wasn't even amongst top 5 clubs in the world in 2004

he started at the best level. Check on coaches who started as low as mourinho how far they have gone. If at all pep started at las palmas, nt brasilian division 4 e 4 dey. KUDOS KLOPP, KUDDOS MOU . PEP AND ZIDANE IS THESAME.
U didnt know he started with Barca B team and his team were successful and was among team to be promoted to La liga. The only stumbling block was the rule that wont allow a club field 2 teams in same Division.

that can be a valid argument but mind you he still performed better than mou in winning league titles in all his team..
pep n mou were in EPL with all cash and resources in the city of Manchester....pep proved to the world dt he is better than mou even if he isnt the best..

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

Right back, right wing back. Are you for real.

pep is a failure or morinho.
pep build team and break record anywhere and anytime in any league but morinho have nothing to talk about.
pep shows to the world that football is by sense and little stress but morinho show us that football is by power and labour. pls don't compare pep and morinho, they are not the same. pep is ahead of morinho.
Mourinho has nothing to has nothing to talk about? Are you sure you are alright? Mourinho has broken records everywhere. Up till now that his league winning team in Madrid is still the highest number of points ever achieved by any team in la liga,that includes Pep's barca team. Mourinho has won champions league with two different teams, which one has pep won since he left barca? What has pep won in england that Mourinho hasn't won already? With all the money that man city are spending for pep, even to reach final of champions league is a big problem for him.

Porto? Prime? 2004?
What are you saying? Name one Porto player then? We had big teams like Acmilan, previous winners, Juventus, Madrid, Barca, Bayern...Please Mourinho motivated the team to win.

Inter? No! Sneider said something then, Mourinho gives us some days break, calls to check on us and families...after the break, WE PLAY TO DIE for him. That's motivation.

Riijkard gave same to Dinho and Etoo. That's why the success they had, PEP inherited the team. That's why he can't do shit in City because City was shit

Porto where in their prime when they won the champions league,and most of the big teams were having a torrid time, just like when Leicester won the league ...Do you know the players they had? Deco, Carvalho, Maniche, Bennie McCarthy and Bosingwa all at their peak...

Well both are good and great managers but I don't expect eto"o to pick pep over jose ...NO...he played his best carrier years under jose....so i don't expect anything less....talking about motivation ...yes mourinho is good at motivating players but I still don't understand how pple are been judgemental about pep saying he can only function with quality players....that word quality is something we get sooo wrong....pep doesn't have just quality players cos i can tell u most of his players won't make it to the top3 in Europe in each of their roles....the point is pep always get players that are technically gifted not really outstanding skillfully ...and this is cos his style of football requires technical ability than physical....now some pple will say jose can make any team/player look good...i just laugh..."YOU GUYZ MUST BE KIDDING YOURSELFS" cos mourinho never made salah....debruyne....robben...look so good...and the answer is simple..."they are not the kind of player he can use to execute his plans" .the most funny thing pple say is that mourinho can play his best with any team....that's a joke of the year...."every team jose mourinho ever used to win a trophy in his carrier had good and decisive players" I STAND TO BE CORRECTED....is it inter of etoo...milito ......is it madrif of Ronaldo...was it hazard of Chelsea....if u Wana prove me wrong give shelfield to jose and tell him not to sign any player...the simple reason why his doing fairly well with Tottenham this season is cos he has gotten wat he needs to play is football...and that's why we are seeing holsberg and sissoko sitting in front of the defence like Mikel and essien,...matic and fellaini...were also sitting in front...the bad news there is that style of football can win u a major trophy anymore in this era....an FA maib ...but not the league and definitely not the champions league....now back to pep ..his got his flaws as a coach but wen I see pple take his critism so far then i just laff ..this man as won numerous trophies by cos his team launches counter and then defends for 45mins ..but cos he always has the balls to play expansive football with his team ...something pple like jose doesn't have the ball to do...now someone will talk and say everything is about result well then i will remind u jose mourinho a team has been humiliated with 5goals and also more even with his pragmatic football and a pep playing open game still beats team most times week in week out....pep team wen at there best from barca...to bayern and city are much more deadly than a jose team that will probably score a goal then defend ....one is s true representation of soccer while the other does the under dog

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.

mynd44

You're speaking with the benefit of hindsight. And I don't really blame you. We all forget soon.

Go read about Pep's start at barca. Start here:

https://www.goal.com/en-us/news/174/uefa-champions-league/2015/05/06/11458192/how-guardiola-turned-barcelona-and-messi-into-the-best-in

No one expected his achievements. Now it seems inevitable.

I'm not saying who better between both Mourinho & Pep. I don't know. But anyone saying his achievements at barca was inevitable is being insincere.

Why has the champions league eluded Pep in all the teams he coached after Barcelona but Jose won it with several teams including an underdog like Porto?

It tells you there are qualities Pep lacks.

Which several teams? Morinho only won UCL with Porto and Inter, and, no, Porto wasn't an underdog team the time they won it with Morinho. Porto, Ajax, Bayern, and AC Milan were some of the best teams in Europe as at that time.

jagorinho:


Pep is actually a good coach, his start to life in barca was not rossy, he lost his first match away to Numancia and drew at Camp Nou with Racing Santander, but after that game when a worried pep was retiring to his office, Iniesta stopped him on his way and told him not to worry that the whole squad appreciate his playing pattern and sooner the results will improve, after that Barca won 9 consecutive matches and were crowned LA liga champions after the season.

In tactics, Pep is superior but a prime Mourinho is superior in Man management, he made less talented players feel important, so they could take bullets for him and he knows how to manage the bloated egos of his world class players.
Mourinho is superior in Man management? I disagree with you on this. Mourinho is a poor man manager..... I cant remember Mourinho managing any club without fighting for supremacy with his players. At Madrid, he had issues with Casillas, Ramos, Pepe & even Ronaldo. At Man United, he fought with Pogba & Martial and that was how he lost the dressing room....i still haven't forgotten the issue he had with Hazard at Chelsea. There was a time he was also caught o camera saying eto was older than his Football age.

if you check very well, I was referring to prime Mourinho, after his stint at Inter Milan Mourinho has gone down hill, do you know the kind of man management he did to an average squad at Porto that won the champions league? I have been supporting inter Milan since 2003, he made the squad believe they can win the champions league when he took over.

Prime mourinho was a blessing to football, it is a pity he is shadow of his old self, Materazzi was crying when Mourinho was about to leave despite being an heavily under used substitute for Mourinho, he gave Stankovic 2 weeks break when his wife gave birth, he convinced eto"o to play wide forward position despite eto's preferred centre forward position.

Mourinho would always give you the believe that you can do it, no matter how inferior your talent is, but of recent maybe because of old age or inability to reinvent himself, he has become a very toxic individual and his man management skills are not good enough anymore.

Bros you are the ignorant one here and that guy you quoted is actually right.

In 2003/2004 UCL, all the big teams flopped:

Real Madrid was eliminated by Monaco in the QF, Man utd was eliminated by Porto in the final match of the group stage.

AC Milan was dumped out by Deportivo La Coruna while Liverpool couldnt even make the UCL at all.

Bayern Munich was dumped out in the second round by an upcoming Ranieri's Chelsea team while Barcelona couldnt make it into the UCL knockout stages at all.

The 2004 UCL final was played between Porto and Monaco, (more like a group stage tie). In fact the semi-finalists were Porto, Deportivo, Monaco and Ranieri's Chelsea. Go figure.

So yes, again you are the ignorant one and stop sounding like you understand football very well when you have a poor knowledge of its history!
