Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has named Manchester City as the ‘untouchable’ club in the English Premier League, EPL.
According to him, Pep Guardiola’s side are an untouchable club in the English topflight league because of their quality of work and organisation.
Mourinho stated this ahead of United’s Premier League clash with City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
When asked if there was any untouchable team in the premier league, Mourinho replied, “It is difficult for me to answer because I focus on my job, I focus on the four lines, focus on football.”
ESPN also quoted Mourinho as saying in Friday’s pre-match press conference.
“If you want to speak about football potential, we can speak and football potential starts with investment.
“After that, of course, there is a quality of the work, of the organisation of City. I think that is untouchable but what is behind [the scenes] I cannot say.
“In this moment I have only to think about football, and to think about football is to think about Manchester City as a football team.”
Asked if his team is trying to close the gap on City, the Portuguese said: “If we draw against City [the gap] it’s nine points, if we lose it is 12. I don’t think it is the way to look at the match.
“We have to just think about the match, it is difficult enough by an isolated event.
“I want to play it as an isolated match. A difficult match against a difficult team but they think it is a difficult match for them.”
