Argentina legend believes Mourinho is a better coach than Guardiola

Former Argentina coach Diego Maradona has discussed his belief that his son-in-law, Atletico Madrid forward Sergio Aguero, will eventually sign for city rivals Real Madrid at some point in his career.

The World Cup legend assessed the future of the 22-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Tottenham, in an interview with Spanish publication Marca, during which he also compared the managerial styles of Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola.

Maradona stated that he "saw Aguero at [Real] Madrid", as speculation intensifies that the player could be set to make a summer move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Continuing to the subject of who he feels to be the better coach between Mourinho and Guardiola, he insisted that the Portuguese would always be his first choice, saying: “If I were a president, I would hire Mourinho first, certainly because of his experience.

“I believe however that Pep is a guy who has been touched by a magic wand, make no mistake that he is a hard worker. If Mourinho had the time that Guardiola has had [in Spanish football], things might be more equal.”

Finally, Maradona also had words of high praise for Real Madrid defender Marcelo.

“Removing [Lionel] Messi and Cristiano [Ronaldo], Marcelo is the best player in the league right now,” he added.
