Bruno Fernandes hails 'best coach in the world' Pep Guardiola

Bruno Fernandes considers Pep Guardiola to be the "best coach in the world".

The Manchester United captain has lavished praise on the manager of rivals Manchester City and hailed the way the Spaniard has influenced how the game is played across the globe.

Fernandes told Portuguese newspaper A Bola: "We are talking about the best coach in the world, without a shadow of a doubt.

"He is probably the coach who most changed the game of football. Nowadays, everyone wants to be Guardiola, there's no need to hide that.

"All teams, from the second to the first division, everyone tries to play like City and everyone tries to find the dynamic that City has, because they have results and success.

"For me, having praise from a coach like Guardiola is something spectacular, because, as I said, we are talking about a coach that I really appreciate and who, for me, today, is the best coach in the world."

Fernandes also admires the work of departing Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp for the "passion" he has brought to the Reds.

The midfielder said: "He is a coach who changed the dynamics at Liverpool, who brought hope to the club. If we look at it, Klopp is the coach who has probably won the fewest titles and, even so, achieved the most in terms of the passion of the world of football, the passion of the fans, the transformation he brought to a club.

"He won big titles, he won the Premier League, the Champions League, and some cups, but the biggest prize he will take away from these years will be the flame, the passion and the new dynamics he brought and which made Liverpool once again believe in being (a) champion, in being able to fight for titles, in being among the best.

"That's something that no one will ever take away from Klopp. We are talking about another coach who really influences my passion for football."
