The Premier League cannot wait to see Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho go head-to-head next season.
The pair will renew their rivalry - born in Spain when they were the respective managers of Barcelona and Real Madrid - in Manchester.
But if you were hoping for the war of words to begin immediately, think again.

Guardiola had only kind words to say about his Portuguese counterpart when he met reporters for the first time as Manchester City’s manager.
Perhaps it’s a sign that the former Bayern Munich boss has no interest in reigniting a rivalry that has resulted in eye pokes and translator jibes.
Not only did Guardiola not have a bad word to say about Mourinho, but he also praised the Manchester United boss for making him a better coach.
“It's not about him or me,” Guardiola replied when Mourinho was brought up. “It's doesn't matter about the team, it's so difficult to win here.
“We played many times against each other and the big coaches like Jose, they helped me reach another level as a coach.”
If it’s big coaches Guardiola is after, he’s certainly in the right place. England also welcomed Antonio Conte this summer, joining Arsene Wenger, Jurgen Klopp, Mauricio Pochettino and Claudio Ranieri among the stable of Premier League managers.
But they could be forced to watch Guardiola and Mourinho go head-to-head for the title. The managers - arguably the best two in Europe - have improved their squads drastically in the transfer window.
And Pep is expecting a fierce competition.
“I don't see it as a question,” he added. “We're both here, Jose and I. He wants to win, I want to win. We know each other pretty well.
“Competing against managers like that take you to the next level, they push you to achieve things.”
