Ahead of the Manchester Derby 2016 two great managers clash. This time on English soil. Bleacher Report (Turner Broadcasting System, San Francisco) commissioned this piece, one of a series of artist interpretations of either Pep or Jose and Manchester.
On joining Manchester City Pep Guardiola stated that he was here to learn. In contrast Mourhinio stated out loud his desires for all the trophies. On paper Guardiola is ranked best manager in the world by FIFA, in my design I wanted to draw on his humble side.
The image includes some of Manchester's most iconic buildings including The Beetham Tower, Manchester Town Hall, The National Football Museum and Manchester Cathedral.
