Mourinho has won 25 major titles during his managerial career before he was sacked by Man United last December, while Guardiola has won 26 titles and he is heading for 27 titles this weekend if Man City beat Watford in the FA Cup final.

But reacting, Mourinho said he does not focus on figures, adding that he would have won more titles than Guardiola had he remained at his former clubs, Porto and Inter Milan respectively.

“No, no, it reminds me that I’m there, with 25 titles,” Mourinho told L’Equipe when asked about Guardiola’s superior titles record.

“When I won the Champions League with Porto and Inter Milan, if I had stayed, the season after I would have had the European Super Cup, the Club World Cup and the national Super Cup and perhaps I would have ended up with 31 titles.

“Maybe I’m not so focused on the figures!”
