Manchester City boss Jose Mourinho has accused Manchester City’s players for over-celebrating following Sunday’s 2-1 at the Old Trafford Stadium.
According to reports from Mirror Sport, the United boss said shortage of education and class was responsible for this.
Jose Mourinho broke his silence on the Old Trafford tunnel bust-up.
The Man United boss claimed Pep Guardiola’s Blues showed a lack of respect with their celebrations in the away dressing-room following Sunday’s 2-1 win in the first vs second clash that gives them an 11-point lead at the top of the table.
Mourinho said Red Devils would not behave in the same way in that situation and claimed their respectful post-match celebrations following a 3-1 win at Arsenal the previous weekend proved his point.
He was 16 minutes late for his Tuesday press conference, clearly having waited to see what Guardiola — holding his media briefing at the same time — had said about the fracas.
But the Portuguese, who was accused of sparking the fracas by remonstrating with City at the door to the away dressing-room, said he had no time for his opposite number’s take on the episode.
“He says, he says,” said Mourinho. “I’m not here to comment on his words.
“The only thing I can say is that, for me, it was just a question of diversity.
“Diversity in behaviour, diversity in education. Just that. And nothing more than that. The diversity of behaviour, of opinion, of education.
“What we did in the Arsenal stadium, you know? It was completely diverse. What we did, what happened after that match, the way we behaved as winners.”
