Andreas Pereira believes both Jose Mourinho and Marcelino Garcia Toral are ‘great managers’ but the Manchester United boss is ‘more relaxed’.
The 21-year-old midfielder is on a season-long loan at the Mestalla from the English giants and he outlined the main differences in an interview with ESPN.
“They're two great managers, but Mourinho is more relaxed off the pitch,” Pereira explained.
“Of course there is discipline and you have to be on time but players are more relaxed. They feel good.
“There's less pressure because Mourinho takes it off the players and puts it on himself. During the preseason in Los Angeles, he told us that we could do whatever we wanted after training.
“He trusted us to rest and relax. To do what we wanted to do. There were a lot more meetings under Van Gaal."
