Barcelona boss Guardiola: Mourinho will make me better coach

Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola says Jose Mourinho's arrival at Real Madrid will make him a better coach this season.

Guardiola expects to be driven to his limit by Mourinho this term.

"The arrival of Jose Mourinho to our league will make me a better coach. It is very important he coaches in Spain because he is one of the best in the world.

"He will make all coaches better," said Guardiola.

The Barca coach also spoke of his row with new AC Milan signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent Mino Raiola, who still has the likes of Maxwell on his books.

"I thank the club which has sent out a statement on the issue, but I know how to defend itself," he added.
