The rivalry between Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola will be renewed next season, with the pair taking charge of the two Manchester clubs in the summer.
Here’s a look at who faces the biggest rebuilding job – Mourinho at United or Guardiola at City.
After the sterility and frustration of the Louis van Gaal era – even after winning the FA Cup – United fans are in need of a lift.
The high-profile Mourinho can provide that. His appointment may not be universally welcomed by supporters, as some of his past histrionics are an issue for some, but large swathes of the United fanbase had called for him to be installed for months.
If results follow, Old Trafford is sure to be re-energised, at least in the short term. Guardiola already seems to have all City fans onside, with some even planning welcome parties.
