Jose Mourinho: Manchester City documentary showed that they can’t buy class

Apparently embittered at being beaten and left in the shadow by Pep Guardiola again last season, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has hit out at Manchester City and the new ‘All or Nothing: Manchester City’ Amazon docuseries that is winning praise following its release.

The second episode, featuring City’s win over Manchester United at Old Trafford last season, has a line by narrator Sir Ben Kingsley that appears to have wound Mourinho up

“It is Guardiola versus Mourinho once more; possession versus defence; attacking football versus ‘park-the-bus’,” Kingsley says during episode two, “Noisy Neighbours”, as City’s progressive style against Manchester United’s negative football is highlighted.

Mourinho appears to have watched the documentary and responded negatively to what he saw.

“You can have a fantastic movie while respecting others,” said the Manchester United manager, famed for his disrespect (and eye-gouging) of others.

“You don’t need to be disrespectful to have a fantastic movie. You can be a rich club and buy the best players in the world but you cannot buy class and they showed that clearly, that was really obvious.”

Manchester United finished 19 points behind record-breaking Manchester City last season as Pep Guardiola continued his supremacy over Mourinho that began in Spain.

Jose will hope come the end of this season he will can have some bragging rights over Pep and City, but for now he has to be content with complaining about documentaries produced about the English champions.
