Mourinho and Guardiola will go head-to-head in the Manchester Derby after the international break, and Ray Wilkins feels the Portugese is a football genius.

“It’s all about how he manages the players on a personal level. Invariably at the clubs he has managed the players are at such a high standard that they know how to play the game, how to organise themselves on the pitch and how to manage the game on the pitch, so it’s a question of the art of man- management.,” Wilkins was quoted as saying by the Manchester Evening News.

“What astonishes me is how brilliant Jose is at this aspect of management considering that he never played at a high level himself, which contracts starkly with say a manager of equal world renown such as Pep Guardiola.

“For me, that makes Jose a genius. When you look at the level that Guardiola played at, he was a superb footballer, you would know that he understands players at the highest level, he is on their wavelength, gets into their psychic.

“Yet, Mourinho still understands his players every bit as well as Guardiola, and of course he is a serial winner, and that makes him, in my book, the best that there is.
