Here’s How Jose Mourinho Plans to “Bury the Hatchet” With Pep Guardiola

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will reportedly attempt to “bury the hatchet” with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and invite him for a drink following Saturday’s huge derby at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese coach has reportedly restored Sir Alex Ferguson’s office at the Theatre of Dreams to its previous state—after former boss Louis van Gaal converted it to an analysis room—so that he can continue the tradition of inviting his opposite numbers for a post-match drink.
According to the Sun’s Neil Custis, long-term nemesis Guardiola will be no exception despite Mourinho and the former Barcelona manager’s long-term and public feud.
Mourinho, 53, once admitted to Cadena Ser that he and the 45-year-old Guardiola were “close” when they were both part of the Barcelona setup under manager Sir Bobby Robson.
However, their relationship has deteriorated following a number of hot-tempered clashes, first when Mourinho’s Inter Milan beat Guardiola’s Barca in the semi-finals of the 2010 Champions League and then during two seasons spent either side of Spain’s Clasico divide.
The unrelenting battle with Mourinho’s Real Madrid was part of the reason Guardiola opted to quit Barca and take a sabbatical in 2012.
The pair renew their rivalry in the Premier League on Saturday in a match that, though coming early in the 2016-17 season, could play a big role in the title race.
