‘This question doesn’t exist’: Tuchel on whether he’s better than Guardiola
Naturally, in his pre-match press conference ahead of the Man City clash, the German was asked about whether he is currently a better coach than Pep.ADVERTISEMENTnull
Tuchel said: “This question does not even exist for me and it doesn’t exist for me because I can’t answer it. These are questions for you guys that you can maybe endlessly debate.
“I have the highest respect for Pep because I’m a huge admirer of the impact he had from his first day of professional coaching.
“Look at the trophies, look at the influence, there is absolutely no reason why I should start to ask myself whether I’m a better coach or not.ADVERTISEMENTnull
“I do the best I can, I’m in a place right now where I’m very happy. I’m a better coach today than I was yesterday and that’s all that matters.”
The German’s humility is a part of what makes him such a likeable figure but the competitor in him will surely be chomping at the bit to get another victory against the Spaniard.
