Manchester City's Pep Guardiola responds to Jose Mourinho claims of 'disrespect' over All Or Nothing

Posted: 20 August 2018 Time: 11:30

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola refuted the idea of the club being 'disrespectful' after Manchester United's Jose Mourinho claimed 'rich clubs can't buy class'.

City released a £10m (R184m) documentary 'All Or Nothing' last week - focusing on last season's record-breaking title win.

And within the film, a clear narrative of Mourinho's alleged negative style of play was made apparent when narrator Ben Kingsley described the Manchester Derby last December as 'possession versus defence; attacking football versus park-the-bus'.

The Red Devils boss hit back claiming; "You can have a fantastic movie while respecting others.

"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."

However, after City's 6-1 mauling of Huddersfield, the Spaniard issued a clear response, highlighting that Mourinho is entitled to his own opinion.

"I don't agree with Jose in terms of disrespectful. This was not our intention - it was filming last season," Guardiola said, as quoted by BBC Football.

"It is a club trying to grow, trying to win titles. We did it for ourselves and our fans to see what happens inside the locker room.

"Other guys will say 'we like' and other guys will say 'no'."
