Mourinho responds to talk Man Utd goaded Man City after derby win

Mourinho responds to talk Man Utd goaded Man City after derby win

Here's what pundits, managers and players have said after City won the league...

And Arsenal, in 2003-04, remain the only team to go through a Premier League season unbeaten, so there are some achievements that this City team has been unable to chalk off.

Mourinho was incensed at what he deemed over-zealous celebrations from City's players and staff after they won 2-1 at Old Trafford in December.

"They were the right ones and the ones we believed in, I'm sure there are differences to how we play today compared to Bayern (Munich) and Barcelona, we survive and live by the strength of the team". I was unfortunate enough to play against that quality United side that dominated in the '90s, but this side would have beaten them - that's how good they are.

"Football is an unpredictable game".

City captain Vincent Kompany said: "It's the same feeling as the first time and you can't describe it". Previous times, we almost threw it away and that was a feature of every season we won it.

At the same time, Stoltenberg expressed his conviction that those responsible for chemical attacks must be held to account. Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the strikes were about making sure chemical weapons can not be used with impunity.

Only time will tell how good this City team is, and whether they are the best we have ever seen in the Premier League, but one thing that can not be denied is that they are the best we have right now - and by some distance. "I have never retained a title so I want to see if this team's got it to carry on and be even more successful".

It is ironic that United came back from 2-0 down against City themselves last weekend to win 3-2 and delay City's party, only to surrender so tamely on home soil. Having avoided the embarrassment of watching City celebrate the title in front of them last week, many couldn't stomach witnessing their own heroes hand the trophy over in such meek fashion. That's the reason why they were champions. "I don't know if I was the first or second or third but I congratulated them face to face when I had the chance", Mourinho said.

"We were happy with the result".

"Last not 20 years ago, it was three".

He added: "You can win the Champions League in seven games, the league is 10 months".
