Eidur Gudjohnsen

Cesc Fabregas

Samuel Eto'o

He played 82 games for Mourinho when they were together at Inter Milan and for Guardiola he played 52 times for him at Barcelona.

Xabi Alonso

He played 151 games for Mourinho when they were together at Real Madrid and for Guardiola he played 79 times for him at Buyern Munich.

Arjen Robben

He played 106 games for Mourinho when they were together at Chelsea and for Guardiola he played 97 times for him at Buyern Munich.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

He played 100 games for Mourinho when they were together at Inter Milan and for Guardiola he played 46 times for him at Barcelona.

Kevin De Bruyne 

He played 9 games for Mourinho when they were together at Chelsea and for Guardiola he played 212 times for him at Manchester City.

What a collection of supreme talents.There is just so little to split the vast majority of these players.Nathan Ake, who has endured an injury-hit maiden season at City, was a fairly obvious choice for the final place and we couldn't look beyond Kevin De Bruyne for top spot, but otherwise it was something of a free-for-all in the middle of the pack. 

Zlatan Ibrahimovic just got the nod over Arjen Robben by virtue of his longevity, while Xabi Alonso moved above fellow central midfielder and compatriot Cesc Fabregas as the player with the most combined appearances under Pep and Jose. 

If you need any further convincing, Alonso also won two Champions League and remains arguably the most complete holding midfielder of his generation.
