Jose Mourinho was announced as Manchester United’s new manager after the club decided to sack Louis Van Gaal with a year to go on his contract.
Mourinho famously dubbed himself ‘The Special One’ back in 2004, when he was unveiled as the new Chelsea manager.
However, Roy Keane believes that the title should go to Pep Guardiola, as he sees the Spaniard as a ‘challenging coach’ who doesn’t mess around.
“Two coaches in Manchester. Mourinho reckons he’s the special one, to me this guy [Pep Guardiola] is,” Keane said while speaking on ITV.
The Irishman added: “He said he’s a challenging coach – doesn’t look like he messes about. I wouldn’t like to mess with him.
“We’ve seen City have good starts before and they take their foot off the gas a little bit, but I don’t think it will happen under this guy.”
Roy Keane played for Manchester United from 1993 to 2005, after he joined the club for a then British transfer record fee of £3.75 million. He became a Manchester United legend during his time with the Red Devils. and captained the club for four years before leaving in 2005 on mutual consent.
Keane made 480 appearances for Manchester United and he was best known for his aggressive style of play and his brilliant leadership.
