Barcelona legend Maradona: Real Madrid's Mourinho better than Guardiola

Former Barcelona star Diego Maradona rates Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho superior to Pep Guardiola. Maradona also took a swipe at Barca goalkeeper Victor Valdes.

On Mourinho, he said: "I love the man, as a coach and psychologist. For me, he's the best. Mourinho can turn a coin into gold and this is the reason he has my affection. I'm not in love with him or anything like that, but he is an exceptional man.

"Pep is a great person. I know him very well, but he may not have as much quality as Mourinho, he has better players at his disposal. But do not forget that Pep is very young and has a great career ahead."

On Valdes, he also told News360: "Barcelona are a great team, including the goalkeeper, who looks good with those players. It's true, Valdes is bad! But with players like that ahead of him, he looks good."
