Allan Shearer: Jose Mourinho is jealous of Manchester City boss

Man Utd head-coach Jose Mourinho is jealous of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, Alan Shearer claims.

The Red Devils were stunned by Chris Houghton’s Brighton that have beat them 3-2.

Paul Pogba has scored a late consolation penalty, however, the damage was already done as they have lost the game.

United scraped past the Foxes on an opening day and the Reds have struggled to find form under Jose Mourinho.

The Citizens on the other hand, dominated against Arsenal on the opening weekend and destroyed 6-1 Huddersfield.

Pep Guardiola’s squad are looking to secure back-to-back titles – and the Citizens already look unstoppable this season again.

And Premier League legend Allan Shearer has hit out at Mourinho, claiming that the Red Devils are jealous of Pep Guardiola and Man City’s success.

“Jose Mourinho has criticised the Manchester City TV documentary, saying “you cannot buy class”,” Shearer told The Sun.

“It is typical Jose, trying to look after his own club.

“But he is just jealous that City were successful last season and Manchester United were not.

“The fact of the matter is, Jose wishes United were in City’s position.

“From what I have seen of the documentary, it is a great insight into what makes Pep Guardiola tick and the reasons why he is so very good.”

Mourinho has slammed the Citizens claiming you cannot buy class.

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

“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.”

Former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola hit back at Mourinho’s comments, claiming the documentary wasn’t disrespectful in any way.

“I think we lived an amazing season with cameras. We did it for ourselves,” said Guardiola.

“It is Jose’s opinion.”

Man Utd weighing up a move for Premier League No.8 midfielder

Man Utd and Chelsea are reportedly weighing up a move for Arsenal attacking midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

The Walse international midfielder is in the final year of his current deal at the Emirates Stadium and would be available to leave the club for free next campaign – or potentially for a cut-price during the January transfer window – if no new deal is agreed with the club.

The Gunners have offered the Wales international fresh terms, hoever, Ramsey is yet to put pen to paper and the North London club and are reportedly growing more concerned that he could depart from the club.

The Mirror reports that the Gunners Premier League rivals Man Utd and Chelsea are keeping tabs on the situation with one eye on a potential swoop for long-serving Arsenal midfielder.

The likes of Liverpool, Lazio and Barcelona are also believed to be interested in the midfielder should the contract impasse rumble on.

Welshman has been with the North London club for 10 years now, making 331 appearances for the club in al competitions.

"We didn’t deserve to win" - Paul Pogba frustrated Man Utd performance against Brighton

Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba says the defeat to Brighton is a “big lesson” going into their next game with Tottenham.

First-half goals from trio Shane Duffy, Pascal Gross and Glenn Murray inflicted defeat on Manchester United.

Romelu Lukaku pulled one back before France international midfielder Pogba found back of the net a late consolation from the penalty spot.

It followed a 2-1 win over Premier League club Leicester City in their opening Premier League game of the campaign, which they were arguably fortunate to secure all three points.

And Man Utd were again far from their best at the AMEX Stadium, with World-Cup winner midfielder, who wore the skipper armband, urging his team-mates to learn from their own mistakes.

“I’m disappointed, with my performance and the team performance. We didn’t deserve to win,” said the French World Cup winner, whose side take on Tottenham next up.

“I will always try. I know I lost a lot of balls which shouldn’t happen. I tried, I kept pushing, that’s my personality.

“I tried to help the team as much as possible. It didn’t happen today.

“Brighton prepared the game very well.

“Maybe we didn’t have the attitude to break them, to kill them when we had to kill them and to go through the lines.

“That’s a lesson we have to keep in mind.

“If we deserve to win I will say that but today the truth is we didn’t play well enough.

“They had more hunger than us and the result is the right one for them.”
