Mou mocks Man City over Alexis transfer failure

Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho mocked Manchester City's claims they turned away from Alexis Sanchez when it became apparent United were going to land him.

“Alexis reminds me a little bit of the metaphor — when you see the tree with amazing oranges at the top of the tree but cannot get there," he said, using an interesting fruit analogy to poke fun at Pep Guardiola's team.

“You say, ‘Oh, I got the lower ones because I don’t like the ones at the top’. But you do like the ones at the top. They’re so nice, so orange, so round, so full of juice. But you can’t get there.

“So you say, ‘I don’t want to go there’ or ‘I didn’t like it, I prefer the other ones.’ It reminds me of that story.”
