Pep Guardiola vows to shake Jose Mourinho’s hand in Beijing

Pep GuardiolaPep Guardiola insists he will shake hands with arch rival Jose Mourinho at Monday’s Manchester derby in Beijing.

Manchester rivals City and United come face-to-face in the Chinese capital in a game that pits old foes Guardiola and Mourinho against each other for the first time since their rivalry in Spain.

Guardiola and Mourinho became sworn enemies when the pair were in charge of Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively, the pair clashing frequently as their rivalry turned toxic.

But ahead of Monday’s encounter at the Bird’s Nest Stadium, Guardiola said he would observe the pre and post-match ritual by shaking hands with Mourinho.

“Why shouldn’t I shake hands with him? No reason why not. He wants to win, I want to win.

“It’s a friendly game, a really friendly game.
