Jose and Pep are our favorite “frenemies” in the world of soccer, and their feud added a new chapter this week at a UEFA coaches summit in Switzerland.
It turns out that even being in the land of neutrality couldn’t stop the two from bickering. The fight reportedly started over the length of the grass on the pitch. Guardiola thought the length of 3 cm was too long, and wanted it reduced to 1.5 cm, and be watered before every game. This would, according to Pep, make the play faster and more beautiful.
From TZ, the rest of the exchange went as follows:
"Everyone has his style of play, which should be respected," Mourinho responded. "Football can be spectacular in several ways."
"The beauty of football depends on the coach," Guardiola replied. "It seems to me that Mourinho prefers the result to the spectacle. I know to him that’s all that matters."
And it doesn’t end there. El Confidencial reports that Mourinho hit back at Guardiola with a cheap shot about his lack of hair.
"When you enjoy what you do, you don’t lose your hair, and Guardiola is balding. He doesn’t enjoy football."
This is just classic Mourinho. It’s not entirely clear if he actually said this, but we’re really, really hoping he did.
