Manchester City are a “rich club” but “cannot buy class” claims Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.
After responding to a question about Manchester City’s £10m Amazon Prime Documentary All or Nothing, Mourinho said: “I think you can have a fantastic movie, respecting others. You don’t need to be disrespectful.”
For the Amazon Documentary A film crew was given behind-the-scenes access – including to the dressing room – for an eight-part documentary about Manchester City.
Mourinho also said : “I haven’t seen it but I know a few things about the movie. My reaction is if you are a rich club you can buy top players, you cannot buy class. That is my first reaction.
“The second reaction is because I am in the movie, I could ask for some royalties.”
City may have won the title had they beaten Mourinho’s men at the Etihad Stadium on 7th April and were 2-0 ahead at the break. Only for Manchester United to turn the game around and win 3-2.
Pep Guardiola’s side had printed souvenir T-shirts in the hope they would clinch the title that day, but the celebrations were delayed by two weeks following the defeat.
Mourinho added: “You know, a movie without me doesn’t sell much. I needed to be there.
“But if they send me one of the shirts they had in the tunnel when we played there, the shirts that were saying: ‘We did it on derby day.’
“If they send me one of these shirts, I give up about the royalties.”
