Man City boss Guardiola: Will I accept Mourinho's wine invite...?

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola insists he has a lot of respect" for Jose Mourinho ahead of their visit to Manchester United.

Guardiola spoke about Mourinho at today's media conference.

“I said it many times – I have a lot of respect for Jose Mourinho, I always try to learn from all of my colleagues – it's the same with him. The rivalry is more from the media and we can't control that.

“He was my coach, my assistant coach with Sir Bobby Robson. OK, the last period at Barcelona and Real Madrid was not easy for both of us but we met each other two, three weeks ago at the manager's Premier League meeting. We spoke fluently with Ronald Koeman and Tony Pulis. It was correct, so that's all."

Guardiola was also asked if he'll share glass of wine with Mourinho after the game.

"I'll accept if he invites me," he said.
