Less than 24 hours to the Manchester Derby, head coach of the Nigeria Under-20 team Emmanuel Amuneke has been sighted in a picture, with fierce rival managers Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho dancing during their time at Barcelona.

Amuneke had a torrid time at Barcelona, no thanks to injuries and fitness issues. As coach he presently handles the Nigeria Under-20 team after lifting the World Youth Championship with the Under-17 in 2015.

The picture stumbled upon by Owngoalnigeria.com was taken when the Nigerian was at Barcelona, while Mourinho was acting as an assistant coach to then manager of Barcelona Bobby Robson.

Back then Pep Guardiola was a player and was reportedly very close to the Portuguese. But their relationship has gone sour right from when their path cross in Spain as managers of rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona.
