With Pep Guardiola at Manchester City and Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, Manchester threatens to become the center of the footballing universe during the new Premier League season.The story of the rivalry between Guardiola, 45, and 53-year-old Mourinho – sacked by Chelsea last December – has become one of football's most oft-repeated tales.They first crossed paths at Barcelona in the mid-1990s, when Guardiola was captain and Mourinho worked as an assistant to Bobby Robson and Louis van Gaal.Despite stunning success with Porto and Chelsea, Mourinho was overlooked in favor of the inexperienced Guardiola when Barcelona appointed a new manager in 2008, partly due to fears about his confrontational style.Since Guardiola left Barcelona in 2012, their teams have met just once, Guardiola's Bayern Munich beating Mourinho's Chelsea on penalties in the 2013 UEFA Super Cup.The pragmatist to Guardiola's idealist, Mourinho has enjoyed instant success wherever he has worked, but to repeat the trick at United, he must outwit a very familiar foe.
