Jose Mourinho Takes Aim At Manchester City Over Classless Documentary
Manchester City's Amazon Prime documentary 'All or Nothing' is getting a lot of praise from all sorts of people but it will come as little surprise that Jose Mourinho has not been impressed with some of the content.
Amazon Prime couldn't quite have picked a better season to make a documentary about Manchester City as they broke a hell of a lot of records and let the cameras in for the ride.
Okay thinking about it for the sake of drama they could have picked the 2011/2012 season. Then they would have captured a few more ups and downs and seen City win the Premier League title with virtually the last kick of the game against QPR, probably the league's greatest moment.
But the documentary, which landed on Prime earlier this week, has been met with a lot of acclaim as fans get to see behind the scenes of a very successful club and get to find out about Pep Guardiola's methods. Of course you can't please all the people, especially when one of them is Jose Mourinho.
In episode two ahead of the Manchester derby the narrator says, "It is Guardiola versus Mourinho once more; possession versus defence; attacking football versus 'park-the-bus," whilst chants of 'park the bus Man United' are coupled with parts of his post match press conference.
Clearly that hasn't pleased the United manager. After being asked about the film on Sky Sports the former Inter manager questioned City's class:
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?
