gErard Pique was the last interviewee on Gary Neville’s YouTube channel, ‘The Overlap’, where he reminisced about the times José Mourinho guided Real Madrid, times when the rivalry between Los Blancos and Barcelona reached unimaginable proportions.
The rivalry between Mourinho and Pep Guardiola has always been very heated and the Spanish international recalled several episodes of this relationship between the two.
“It was very difficult in Spain. I remember the first time he came to the Camp Nou with Real Madrid, after winning the treble with Inter, it was a bath of reality and he lost 5-0. But it’s true that in the press conference he put pressure every day and maybe it was too much for Guardiola, because it was a war that had nothing to do with football “, began by saying Pique, recalling that the controversies had reached the Spanish national team.
“At that time he destroyed in many ways the way we see football. Even the relationship with the players. Mourinho gets into the player’s head and if he says someone hates you, believe him. J was going to say hello to Iker. [Casillas] and he didn’t speak to me. It was necessary to do an exercise between the players of Barcelona and Real Madrid to restore the links, to be a good dressing room and to win the title”, he added.
