While Mourinho's unhappiness with his depiction in the documentary may hold some merit, his choice of using the word "class" has caused a strong reaction with many quick to point out the numerous examples of disrespect he has shown over the years. What's the truth behind his relationship with Paul Pogba?

"It will get better and Manchester United will get stronger and won't be easy to play against".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

Here's what he had to say... Then you can think about selling it or renting it because nobody is going to pick it up off you half-built. It's not good for me.

"Every person in every job [who] makes a mistake is not happy, self-esteem goes down a little bit more, confidence levels - that's human nature so, if you ask me if my players are in this moment happy, I don't think they are".

Phil Jones and Chris Smalling were touted as the future of the centre of England's defence when they were brought in, but form and fitness have been a constant struggle for the two who have never achieved their potential.

Brighton looked a very different prospect to the side that meekly surrendered at Watford on the opening weekend, with Hughton acknowledging the players wanted to make up for their previous performance. "I don't like to speak for other people", he said. What can you tell us about that?

Signed from Juventus in 2016, the 25-year-old World Cup victor is Man United's club-record signing but has yet to prove himself as a consistent performer in the Premier League.

"You don't need to be disrespectful to have a fantastic movie", said Mourinho.

Asked whether that clip, in particular, had annoyed him, Mourinho joked: "You know, a movie without me doesn't sell much. It affects the club because Paul and myself are the club".

"Manchester United have had a problem since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in the transfer market with David Moyes and then Louis van Gaal".

"Last season we put ourselves in a hard position, which is to do better we can only finish first". It has to be a big lesson for us.

But its rich that he is talking about class, I am specifically thinking of some of the spats with Arsene Wenger, that wasn't very classy.

The likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham have all made ideal starts to the season and enjoy a three-point advantage over Mourinho's men. Arsenal will be better even though they lost their first match. Giggs is now manager of the Wales national side, but while the Welshman would not take the decision lightly to leave his current post, you have to feel a return to United is what he's dreamed of.
