"I said many times I don't judge", stated Guardiola. "And I answer the question". One of the secrets of last season was when we didn't get three points, we won the next game.

And when it was confirmed to him that Jurgen Klopp had been asked about his own failure to win the league, Mourinho said: "Because he never won anything in worldwide for example..."

Manchester United have endured a poor start to the 2018-19 season but manager Jose Mourinho has receives surprising backing from Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola. "I am the only manager in the world that has won in Italy, Spain and England, and by winning eight titles - not small titles, not small countries, eight proper titles - my second position last season is one of my greatest achievements in football". That's easy. I had, last season, great success. I had great success last season that's what you probably don't want to admit.

"I have won eight titles".

Mourinho's latest comments come after a news conference during which he demanded "respect" from journalists following Monday's 3-0 home loss to Tottenham - the heaviest home defeat of his career.

Despite rampant speculation, the board members have confirmed their backing of manager Jose Mourinho, and are intent on keeping local players such as Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard at Old Trafford to maintain the sanctity of the historic club.

The Red Devils had won the Europa League and League Cup in Mourinho's first campaign in charge but they have struggled to produce consistent form recently.

"They don't hide", he said admiringly, having previously gone public with his own disappointment at United's failure to land more than one of his transfer targets.

Mourinho told the club's official website: "He's [Alexis] not going to the national team for these two friendlies in Japan and South Korea, which is good news for us because after that we play Watford and then immediately play [in the] Champions League [away at Young Boys]". " Mourinho has watched his side capitulate in the opening weeks of the Premier League season, collecting only three points from a possible nine".
