Super Sunday has certainly delivered this weekend, with the Manchester derby headlining game week 16. Lukaku vs Aguero, Martial vs Sane, Mourinho vs #Guardiola. It has it all. However, despite managing Manchester City now, it has been revealed that the Spanish manager came very close to managing the red side of Manchester - and an even more interesting reason as to why he isn't now.

Is red Guardiola's colour?

The former Barcelona manager has told sources that he missed out on the Manchester United job due to Sir Alex #Ferguson's accent. Yes, you read that right.

Guardiola revealed that himself and the great Scottish manager shared dinner together in New York back in 2012, during the time where he was searching for the successor to himself.

It is understood that Ferguson offered the job to the former Barcelona player, however, due to his limited understanding of english at the time, he was unable to comprehend what the Scotsman was saying.

"My English is not perfect now, but it is a little bit better. But in that period, my English was not good an maybe I didn't understand him.

Imagine where #Manchester United may be now if the Spaniard was hired. Nonetheless, Guardiola has still experienced success within the game since this dinner in 2012.

It's ok, Man United wanted Moyes anyway

The 46-year-old began his illustrious career managing the B team of FC Barcelona, before being promoted in 2008 to replace Frank Rijkaard in the first team. While in Catalonia, he won multiple La Liga titles and won the Champions League in his first season at the Camp Nou during a successful four year stay at Barcelona.

In search of a new challenge, Guardiola left Barcelona to join German side Bayern Munich in 2013. The Spaniard remained in Bavaria for three years, winning the Bundesliga title each season and revolutionising German football with a pass first mentality, much like the Spanish adopted.

He now currently manages Manchester City. Despite enduring a relatively quiet first season, from Pep Guardiola's standards, he has helped the Sky Blues set the Premier League alight - as they are yet to lose a game within the league this season.

On the other hand, since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement in 2013, Manchester United have struggled to find a long-term replacement for the Scotsman. Dutch manager Louis Van Gaal provided an underwhelming stint as manager, winning only the FA Cup. Ryan Giggs saw a short but romantic stint in the managers dugout as caretaker manager and less said about David Moyes the better.

However, with Mourinho at the helm, the Manchester derby has become an interesting and competitive affair yet again. Therefore, here at Blasting News, we won't expect anything less than a potential game of the season contender.
