Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho criticized Manchester City over their recently released All or Nothing documentary series, claiming that one can film "a fantastic movie while respecting others."
According to Sky Sports, one of the eight-part film’s episodes covered the Man City victory over Man Utd at Old Trafford in December, which opened with the narrator saying that "It is Guardiola versus Mourinho once more; possession versus defense; attacking football versus 'park-the-bus.'"
The episode also featured "City fans chanting 'park the bus', intercut with clips of Mourinho in his post-match press conference, dismissively responding to questions about possession statistics."
"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," he said.
A large number of Twitter users however took a dim view of Mourinho’s claims, criticizing him and calling the Man Utd manager a hypocrite.
Mourinho says City are classless (regarding the documentary) which is funny & hypocritical because he is the same man who jibed at Rafa over his weight and foul mouthed Chelsea’s physio. Shameless!!— Anubhav Tiku (@tikuanubhav) 18 августа 2018 г.

“Man City can’t buy class”
His football may be boring, but in fairness his interviews are entertaining
Lol, Mourinho, the man who blamed and demeaned his physio for a defeat, preaching about class! 🙄— Peter Jackson (@PetercjacksonPj) 18 августа 2018 г.
Mourinho said Man City have no class on some "you can't buy class"😂 What does Mourinho know about class?— Totaal Voetbal (@CruyffThoughts) 18 августа 2018 г.
Mourinho is a joke. If anyone is classless it’s him. The best thing for premier league soccer will be when he is no longer in England. #ManchesterISBLUE— Justin Jemela (@Justin_Jemela) 18 августа 2018 г.
Some however were inclined to agree with Mourinho’s assessment about the apparent “lack of class” displayed in the Man City documentary.
I don't like him but I agree with Jose Mourinho over the City documentary. Lack of class from Man City.— Rohan (@rohanyunas14) 18 августа 2018 г.
Jose Mourinho on Manchester City ‘you cannot buy class’. Please go watch his interview with @SoccerSaturday, because it was excellent. That’s the man I thought we were getting.— Anna_MUFC (@mufc_anna) 18 августа 2018 г.
