Amazon Prime Respond To Jose Mourinho's Shot At Manchester City
A lot of people will love Amazon Prime's 'All or Nothing' behind the scenes documentary about Manchester City's record Premier League winning season and even Jose Mourinho enjoyed it, sort of.
Who doesn't love a good underdog story? The story of the mid table Premier League side rising up against the odds to win the Premier League and then become the record breaking side that sweeps past all before them, that's Manchester City.
Okay so usually the underdog story doesn't include a billionaire owner and the world's best manager but that doesn't matter when it comes to the behind the scenes documentary All or Nothing because it's still bloody good.
Time for a Pep talk. Go behind the scenes, into the changing room and the mind of Pep Guardiola with All or Nothing: Manchester City.- Prime Video UK (@primevideouk) August 17, 2018

My one biggest problem with the documentary is the name. That's because last season City won neither all or nothing. They simply won somethings.
Jose Mourinho's biggest problem with the programme was with his team being criticised with his side's style of play. The Manchester United manager hit back saying, "You can have a fantastic movie while respecting 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."
Fortunately those involved with the documentary aren't too annoyed with Mourinho's assessment because they're just happy he's watching:
Thank you to Jose Mourinho for watching. https://t.co/fvVg2nyvOT- Prime Video UK (@primevideouk) August 18, 2018
It probably will seem like a needless dig from the documentary at the football that Mourinho's side played last season and will do nothing to help Mourinho's mood that people are far too critical of his team.
Asked about improving on last season the Portuguese manager said, "Last season, we put ourselves in a difficult position, because to do better we can only finish first.
"When I read sometimes and watch sometimes, it looks like we finished sixth or seventh and everybody did better than us. We finished second."
With 19 points to catch up from last season the Red Devils will have a lot to do this season but will their fans care if they park the bus if they manage to topple their local rivals?
