CAIRO – 13 December 2017: Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho refused to comment on the fight that took place in the Old Trafford locker room tunnel after Pep Guardiola's, Manchester City`s coach, victory in the Manchester derby last Sunday, although he said that what had happened was a question of diversity in behaviors, and diversity in education.
The Portuguese coach also didn`t want to comment on Pep Guardiola’s statements, who defended his players and denied that their celebrations after the 2-1 victory provoked a brawl in which more than 30 people were involved, according to the reports.
"Pep says what he says, I'm not here to comment on his statements," said Mourinho, who preferred to focus on Wednesday's Premier League game against Bournemouth.
"The only thing I can say is that, for me, it was a matter of differences regarding behavior and education, just that and nothing else, I have nothing more to add," Mourinho said.
Regarding the Bournemouth`s league clash, he said that the loss to City can give them "a little more desire to win" because "nobody likes to lose twice" in a row.
"When you lose a game, then you always want to give a little more, motivation is based on the desire to always win, I repeat, after a bad result you do not want to link two bad results," Mourinho added.
