Eto'o reveals what Mourinho and Guardiola have in common

Former Barcelona and Inter Milan player, Samuel Eto'o has said that Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola have only one thing in common.

The former Cameroonian international played under both managers and also won the UEFA Champions League with each of them.

When asked to speak on what both managers have in common, Eto'o told Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport : "The only common point these two coaches have is the desire to win.

“They are completely different personalities and have a different vision of football."

”I can't compare Mourinho to Guardiola, one of them couldn't win the Champions league with Bayern Munich and the other one did it with Porto.

“Pep had lived all his life in Barcelona but during the years I was there, he didn’t understand the squad. He didn’t live the life of our group.

“I told Guardiola, ‘you will apologise to me because it’s me who will make Barca win, not Lionel Messi’. That was the situation at that time. Messi would later emerge, but you could ask Xavi, Andres Iniesta and the others, that was my era.”
