Pique: Mourinho was too much on Guardiola for him to leave Barcelona
During his time in charge of Barcelona, Guardiola led the Red and Blue Army to an unprecedented six crowns. However, in 2012, Guardiola finally went out of print. Recently, Barcelona central defender Pique said in an interview that he thinks Mourinho is a big reason for Guardiola’s departure.
In 2010, Mourinho, who won the triple crown at Inter Milan, entered Real Madrid, and also opened the war mode between Real Madrid and Barcelona. During his time in charge of Real Madrid, Mourinho told his players “Let’s fight the world“, and that was the worst period in the Spanish national team.
Pique said: “We won everything back then. I remember when Mourinho came to Camp Nou for the first time, he lost 5-0 to us. It’s a shocking fact and these lads at Real Madrid It was tough. But whenever Mourinho shows up at a press conference, you know his style, and I think for Guardiola, something is too much.”
“There are times when what happens off the field is more important than what happens on the field. Guardiola left and Madrid won the title. There were many reasons for the moment he decided to leave, but I’m sure part of it was because of Mourini Oh, that’s too much.”
Asked if Guardiola didn’t like the unpleasant atmosphere between the two clubs, Pique affirmed, “I think so. I remember the Champions League semi-final at the Bernabeu, where he did a shocking game. The press conference, but that has nothing to do with football. He likes to talk about what happens on the field, but the press conference at that time focused on what happened off the field.”
