MOURINHO VERSUS GUARDIOLA
Mourinho and Guardiola represent two very different models of leadership. They have different ways of leading a team, opposite tactics and two antagonistic personalities. But both share the most important: the desire for victory and the success of their teams.
This book is an in-depth analysis of their characteristics, of what separates them and, more important, what unites them. A portrait of how they motivate their players, study the opponent and how they manage the relationship with the media and the tactics and strategies that they use.
This is a book for football lovers who are curious to know the philosophy of both coaches and the way they prepare the matches. But it is also a book aimed at those who want to run a company successfully, with useful lessons on leadership, strategy and management of teams.
“Please don’t call me arrogant. I'm the European champion and I think I’m special.”

“I know I am not the best coach in the world.”
