Jose Mourinho v Louis van Gaal: Who Is More Arrogant?

Chelsea vs Manchester United is a huge Premier League encounter, but that is not just because of the quality on the pitch. Both sides have two crazy characters in the dugout and are often called arrogant, due to the amount of self-confidence they have.

The Fan Park Crew poses the question to you, which manager is more arrogant?

On being better than anyone else

Louis Van Gaal: "I have achieved more with Ajax in six years than Barcelona has in one hundred years."

Jose Mourinho (talking about Barcelona coach Rijkaard, in 2005): “My history as a manager cannot be compared with Frank Rijkaard’s history. He has zero trophies and I have a lot of them.”

On being the complete package

Louis Van Gaal (in 2001): "Louis van Gaal has nothing more to learn."

Jose Mourinho (on joining Real Madrid in 2010): "I am Jose Mourinho and I don’t change. I arrive with all my qualities and my defects."

On their all-conquering philosophies

Van Gaal: "Guardiola follows the Van Gaal Philosophy. So I’m not surprised Bayern have hired Guardiola. Bayern always hire the best managers."

Mourinho: "Like me or not, I am the only one who has won the world’s three most important leagues. So, maybe instead of the ‘Special One’, people should start calling me the ‘Only One’."

On being brilliant abroad

Van Gaal (after becoming Bayern Munich coach): "The Bavarian attitude to life suits me perfectly. Why? Bayern’s motto is ‘Mia san mia,’ ‘We are who we are’ and I am who I am: confident, arrogant, dominant, honest, hard-working and innovative.”

Mourinho (after comments from Claudio Ranieri): "I studied Italian five hours a day for many months to ensure I could communicate with the players, media and fans. (Claudio) Ranieri had been in England for five years and still struggled to say ‘good morning’ and ‘good afternoon.'"

Which one do you think is more arrogant?
