Mourinho v Guardiola: RT’s World Cup pundit trolls rival over EPL remarks (VIDEO)
Jose Mourinho is known for his managerial prowess, as well as his razor sharp wit, which was definitely on display Sunday evening following Manchester United’s 2-1 defeat of Arsenal in Arsene Wenger’s final trip to Old Trafford.
During the post-match press conference, Mourinho was asked his opinion on recent comments by his long-time La Liga and Champions League rival Pep Guardiola, who suggested winning the Premier League was more important for him than winning the Champions League.
"For a coach, for a club, what is important for you: the Champions League or the Premier League?" a reporter asks him.
"I think we always say that the most important one is the one that we win," Mourinho replied, in his trademark sardonic tone.
