And the rivalry continues …
Guardiola even suggested he was too experienced to respond to Mourinho’s comments before the former rivals renewed their hostilities. At the end of a week in which Guardiola signed a new two-year contract with City and Mourinho celebrated a year at the helm of Spurs, the duo will meet again at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, in London.
Mourinho has never shied away from finding issues with his various enemies – and Guardiola has often been one of them. This week’s discussion suggested that City had swayed England coach Gareth Southgate to see Raheem Sterling released from England early, adding to previous claims that Guardiola’s side were guilty of diving.
Mourinho has actually urged Southgate to name the Premier League managers who are pressuring him to get their players to rest.
Sterling has withdrawn from the England squad due to a calf injury, while Tottenham’s contingent of Harry Kane, Eric Dier and Harry Winks have played in at least two of England’s three matches . Kane even played 76 minutes of their win over Iceland despite England failing to advance to the Nations League final.
In his response, Guardiola said: “Mourinho has to go see the doctors of the England national team and Manchester City”
He added: “Look, I’m not going to answer anything about Jose … I said about the doctor because he accused something we did that is not true, so he has to speak up. with the doctors of all these other things …. Don’t ask me because I’m almost 50, so I’m old enough to figure it out. “
