    Pep Guardiola will not judge Jose Mourinho for "respect" comments


    FM-News

    Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has stressed that he will not judge Jose Mourinho after the Manchester United manager claimed he deserved "respect" for winning three Premier League titles.

    Mourinho has come under scrutiny after United's back-to-back defeats against Brighton and Tottenham, which has left them 13th in the early Premier League table with just three points.

    The United boss stormed out of his post-match press conference after the 3-0 loss to Spurs at Old Trafford on Monday, demanding he received more respect and referenced his title wins with Chelsea.

    When Manchester City boss Guardiola was asked whether he thought Mourinho needed to ask for it, he said: "I said many times I don't judge.

    "Of course we are judged for the titles we get now, especially if you have won titles as it can work.

    "There is no doubt about his quality - I have never doubted that in the past, I won't now. But it is not only the titles.

    "I have said many times, for example with myself, I have won at amazing clubs with amazing players, but if that had not happened I would not have won titles.

    "But there are many many managers who don't win titles who are excellent. That's why on one side it happens because you have something special to win titles but the other side managers are so good it is not necessary to win because good clubs, good players sustain you.

    "In many circumstances, the manager cannot control it. That does not mean they are not good."
