"It was an initiative of the club and the players accepted it", Guardiola added. The style of Mourinho's United was portrayed as negative in an episode that featured the Manchester derby on 10 December of past year, narrator Ben Kingsley billing it as "possession versus defence; attacking football versus park-the-bus".
"You can have a fantastic movie while respecting others", Mourinho told Sky Sports.
And Amazon Prime have responded to Mourinho's comments with a brilliant tweet.
Mourinho will no doubt be gunning to get one over Guardiola and City this season as he targets Premier League title number four, and his first with United at the third attempt.
One particular scene in the series before Manchester United take on City at Old Trafford sees narrator Ben Kingsley describe the game as: "It is Guardiola versus Mourinho once more; possession versus defence; attacking football versus "park-the-bus". My reaction is if you are a rich club you can buy top players, you cannot buy class. We finished second. Liverpool are trying to win the title with their fantastic investment.
However, Mourinho is clearly not a fan of the show and his comments will not go down well in the blue half of Manchester.
"They could be spending £200m, but if they lose Harry Kane or Christian Eriksen. the biggest investment was keeping all their best players".
Tottenham have moved their first three fixtures to Wembley, where they played home games last season, but switching the City match to the national stadium is complicated because an NFL game scheduled for the same day.
"I don't know, we are going to adapt if we can adapt and of course we are going to think of ourselves as well, and of course the Premier League".
"And it's just as you say, you have come here many times and I can promise that the life here at the United training ground is a good life".
