Watch: Man United and Man City boss in emotional embrace

Much has been made of the bitter rivalry between old foes Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho in the build-up to the most blockbuster Manchester derby of all time. 

As the punters in the Transfer Tavern look forward to the clash at Old Trafford, the former Real Madrid and Barcelona managers have largely taken centre stage.

For many, the two represent the polar opposites of each other.

Guardiola is widely perceived as a wonderful footballing mind, a slave to a wider philosophy and an individual who will live and die by his sword.

Mourinho, meanwhile, is often looked upon as the more pragmatic, someone who will do what it takes to win.

Still, though their relationship soured during their time battling it out in La Liga, it hasn’t always been that way between the two.

Back in the 1990s, the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ was an assistant coach at the Camp Nou, while Guardiola was one of their star midfielders.

A video on YouTube has emerged, one that shows the two in an emotional embrace following the Blaugrana’s Cup Winners’ Cup Final win over Paris Saint-Germain in 1997.
