Jose Mourinho’s message to Jurgen Klopp after Barcelona comeback will make you cry
Former United manager, Jose Mourinho was full of praise for Jurgen Klopp after guiding Liverpool one of the greatest comebacks in football history.
Liverpool beat Barcelona 4-3 on aggregate to seal a place in Champions League final in Madrid.
The Catalan giants hampered the Reds 3-0 in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final at the Nou Camp and were expected to see out the result at Anfield on Tuesday.
However, Georginio Wijnaldum brace and Divock Origi double made the difference.
Mourinho hasn’t always seen eye to eye with Klopp, who was his rival when he was Manchester United boss back in 2018.
But the Portuguese was all positive positive about the German after his teams stunning display against Barcelona.
Mourinho said: “This is about him. This is a reflection of his personality, don’t give up, his fighting spirit.
“Everything I think today is about Jurgen’s mentality.”
Klopp was in a spirited mood himself after the match and even swore on BT Sport.
“The boys are f***ing giants – it’s believable,” said Klopp. “If you have to fine me, fine me. I’m not native so I don’t have better words for it.”
