Pep Guardiola and Thomas Tuchel have established themselves as two of the modern game's elite managers. The former is a reigning Premier League champion with Manchester City, while Tuchel steered the Blues to Champions League glory last season. 

One player who boasts considerable success under both gaffers is Dani Alves. The Brazilian won four La Liga titles and two Champions Leagues under Guardiola at Barcelona, before winning two Ligue 1 gongs under Tuchel at Paris St. Germain. Having worked with both closely, the now 38-year-old Barca right-back agrees there are similarities between the two.
