Juan Manuel Mata, father to Manchester United midfielder, Juan Mata, has revealed Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho regularly ate at his restaurant in Manchester at the same time, but “he made sure they did not meet.”
Mata Snr., who is a businessman and football agent, opened Spanish restaurant Tapeo and Wine in Deansgate in 2016, two years after his son signed for the Red Devils from Chelsea.
Mourinho, who was sacked by Manchester United in December, was a regular customer during his two-and-a-half years in charge at Old Trafford.
Guardiola, who arrived in Manchester at the same time to take over at crosstown rivals City, also frequents the eatery.
“Pep Guardiola comes here a lot. He comes with his family, he is happy here.
“Jose Mourinho would come at least once every two weeks.
“Guardiola and Mourinho would coincide but I would make sure they wouldn’t meet so I’d put them in different private rooms,” he told Onda Cero Radio
