Manchester City are a "rich club" but "cannot buy class", says Jose Mourinho.

The Manchester United boss was responding to a question about Manchester City's £10m Amazon Prime documentary All Or Nothing,.

Pep Guardiola's team won last season's Premier League title with a record haul of 100 points.

Mourinho said: "I think you can have a fantastic movie, respecting others. You don't need to be disrespectful."

A film crew was given behind-the-scenes access - including to the dressing room - for an eight-part documentary about City, BBC reported,

Mourinho said: "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, you cannot buy class. That is my first reaction.

"The second reaction is because I am in the movie, I could ask for some royalties.

City failed to beat their rivals United at Etihad Stadium on 7 April and were 2-0 ahead at half-time, but Manchester United their turned the game around to win 3-2.

City had printed souvenir T-shirts, as they were hoping to win the title that day, but the celebrations were delayed by two weeks.

Mourinho added: "You know, a movie without me doesn't sell much. I needed to be there.

"But if they send me one of the shirts they had in the tunnel when we played there, the shirts that were saying: 'We did it on derby day.'

"If they send me one of these shirts, I give up about the royalties."

My view: Jose Mourinho is just taking out his frustration on Manchester City, because he has not been given enough money to spend on new players like Pep Guardiola. Mourinho is the one with problem, he badmouth his players publicly in the media, he's always falling out with players and can't seem to manage and control his emotions when giving interviews about players he doesn't like, while his opponent Guardiola cuddles his players on and off the pitch and tell them off privately without the media knowing about it, therefore I don't understand what Mourinho is talikng about class. If a team can't win games and trophies to stay above others and top of the class that team will end up bottom of the class and that's relegation. So in football you can absolutely buy class with money. Football management, fans and sponsors don't want to know if you're posh or fashion icon, they want you to win games and trophies, they want good result not style icon.

Have Manchester City got under Jose Mourinho's skin? What are your views on the Mourinho-Guardiola rivalry?
