Guardiola or Klopp? Lewandowski picks his best manager

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski says Jurgen Klopp is his favorite coach followed by Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola. 

Lewandowski has had the pleasure of working with Klopp and Guardiola with the pair considered as managers of a generation hence being in a position to pick between the duo. The Polish international has described Klopp as having 'two faces' while revealed why he is the best coach he's ever worked with. 

In 2010, Lewandowski was signed by Klopp while at Borussia Dortmund from Lech Poznan and worked together for four years before he moved to Munich. In Munich, he worked with Guardiola for two seasons. 

 "I think Jurgen Klopp [is my favourite] and after that Pep Guardiola. 100 percent," he told ESPN. 

"[Klopp] has two faces. You can see that he is kind of like a father, but the second part is like a coach, a manager. He can tell you everything - and I'm not speaking about the good things - about the bad things."

"Also for [players], he is a huge motivation. He makes this perfect, because he knows where there is this line where he can [push you] more or a little bit less. His performance as a coach is amazing, but not only as a coach but also as a man."
