Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has laid into Amazon Prime’s documentary which followed Manchester City’s record-breaking, title winning season.
Mourinho, whose team finished nineteen points behind the blues last season, claimed the blues included him in the eight-part mini-series just to ‘improve sales.’ “You know, a movie without me doesn’t sell much. I needed to be in there,” said the star of so many best-selling blockbuster movies that it’s impossible to name one.
Incredibly, Mourinho states that he hasn’t seen the film, yet is privileged enough to pass comment on it. “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, but you cannot buy class. That is my first reaction,” he says, before speaking about shirts that City apparently planned to wear which bore the logo ‘we did it on derby day.’
But despite not seeing the film, the former Chelsea boss believes he is being mocked for selling Kevin de Bruyne to Wolfsburg when he was in charge at Stamford Bridge, and is also unhappy with voice-over Ben Kingsley, who referred to the Old Trafford derby, which City won 2-1 as being ‘Guardiola versus Mourinho once more; possession versus defence; attacking football versus ‘park-the-bus.’ And it was at Old Trafford that the Amazon cameras were refused permission to film for the documentary, which resulted in clashes in the changing rooms after the match.
What films would Mourinho star in? I’m claiming Dude, where’s my bus?
