Del Bosque praises Guardiola´s ´fine example´

Vicente del Bosque has labelled Pep Guardiola a “fine example of a Spanish coach”, while questioning Jose Mourinho’s methods.

Former Barcelona coach Guardiola is enjoying a sabbatical from the sport after leaving Camp Nou at the end of last season, following a trophy-laden four years at the club.

Spain coach Del Bosque has lavished praise on Guardiola, whose services are reportedly in demand across Europe.

“He (Guardiola) has what a coach should have, and is a fine example of a Spanish coach,” Del Bosque told AS.

“He had a well developed sporting strategy, good relationships with everyone and was a pleasant guy. He has earned the right to decide where he goes next.

“Coaches have the duty to set an example, because what they do is more important than what they say.”

Former Real Madrid coach Del Bosque also questioned the methods of Mourinho, who is under pressure at the capital city club following an inconsistent season to date.

“Of course, it’s difficult to be the coach of Madrid. Every decision you make is debated,” Del Bosque said.

“We are living in an extreme world, where radical behaviour receives the most coverage. Normality doesn’t sell.

“Still, it is difficult for a team without good relations to have success. Respect is earned every day. There are too many examples of authoritarian coaches who have failed, and who the players would rather forget.”
