Pep Guardiola admitted he doesn’t care if Jose Mourinho was offended by Manchester City’s derby day celebrations, although he did offer an apology to Manchester United as a whole, should the club have been insulted by the nature of their partying.

After the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager had masterminded a 2-1 win at Old Trafford against City’s local rivals, the two sides clashed in an ugly dressing room brawl.

The incident was instigated by Mourinho, who took exception to the manner of the celebrations among Manchester City players and he has insisted that no Manchester United player is to blame.

Mourinho went on the offensive after the clash, claiming that City’s behaviour showed a lack of class before storming out of a press conference ahead of United’s clash with Bournemouth.

But Guardiola refused to apologise if it was just the former Real Madrid and Chelsea boss who was upset and was adamant that his players should be allowed to enjoy the win.

‘If we offended United – not just one player, not Jose – Manchester United, then I apologise,’ he said.

‘We have to enjoy those moments. If the people cannot understand that then I’m sorry. We won a derby.

‘If we were not correct than I apologise to all of Manchester United. Our intentions was not that. It was to celebrate inside the locker room.’
