​Jose Mourinho just can't help himself.

The man just can't swerve the opportunity for a needless dig. It's pathological.

Bayern Munich and Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola were the latest to be sent to the burns ward by serial arsonist Mourinho during a particularly diggy interview with ​France Football magazine.

In the interview in which the Manchester United boss (possibly self-aware?) claims to be calmer and more mature, he started down a point of championing the competitiveness of the Premier League while also defending the vasts sums of money, but somehow ended up taking aim at Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

"In England, clubs are so powerful financially that the market is open to all," the Portuguese coach explained. 

"Take the example of Bayern in Germany, do you know when they start to win the title every year? When they buy the best Borussia Dortmund player the previous summer: Götze, Lewandowski, Hummels" he quipped.

"In England, whether it's Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City ... one team can no longer be dominant permanently. The power is divided, everything is more difficult: buying, winning, building."


Not finished with his theories on Bayern just yet, Mourinho then went after the club's former coach and current Manchester City incumbent Pep Guardiola.

"Maybe in the future I have to be smarter and choose a club in another country where everyone is a champion," he added.

"Maybe I will go to a country where a kitman can be coach and win the title.”
