Liverpool could reach final again next season – Jose Mourinho warns
Jose Mourinho has warned that Liverpool could still reach the Champions League final again next season.
Klopp’s Liverpool lifted the Champions League for a sixth time in history, after beating fellow Epl side Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday night.
Klopp’s new killer striker, Divock Origi was the icing on the cake with his left footed strike, adding to Mohamed Salah’s spot kick in the first half.
After watching Real Madrid hand over their crown after three successive titles, Mourinho predicted a third final in a row for Liverpool.
The former Chelsea boss who won the competition with Porto and Inter Milan, said on beIN Sports, “With Real Madrid it’s three in a row. Why can’t Liverpool do three finals in a row?
“Why Liverpool, with this good team, with this good spirit, with this good empathy. The club, the manager, the players, the fans. Why not a third?”
The Portuguese further mentioned seven other clubs that could win the champions league next year.
“I was writing here the teams that want to win the Champions League. Juventus, Bayern, PSG, Manchester United, City, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid,” Mourinho added.
“You have seven or eight teams.
“Lots of teams want to do it, but only one can do it.”
However, he doesn’t see Chelsea fighting hard with their ban in the transfer window.
“It is difficult for Chelsea because they don’t have the possibility to be in the transfer market,” Mourinho said of the Europa League champions.
Recall that Jose earlier said Liverpool were out of the Champions League when they initially lost 3:0 to Barcelona at the Nou Camp.
